This weekend the three Liberal Democrat Councillors visited every street and park in Southfield ward, where
420 problems were identified.
Southfield Lib Dem Councillors Gary Malcolm, Andrew Steed and Gary Busuttil holding a hoard of out-of-date planning notices that the council have failed to remove.
Statistics from the weekend:
Streets surveyed = 107
Problems identified = 420
Proportion of streets where there were no problems identified = only 15% (so 85% of the streets will
need work from the Labour-run Ealing Council to fix).
Some of the most common things that Ealing Council has failed residents on are: fly-tipped waste, litter and an
excessive amount of leaves. There were also plenty of examples of dangerous trip hazards where residents
could fall over and blocked drains which can lead to flooding.
Councillor Gary Malcolm said: “So, we have 420 reasons why Labour should give up running Ealing Council
and hand over to the Liberal Democrats who care about people and our area!”
Gary Malcolm added: “When Labour-run Ealing Council forced wheelie bins up on residents they said that our
streets would be cleaner. The opposite is true. In this survey we showed many examples of dog poo, blocked
drains, graffiti, large amounts of litter and leaves, fly tipped waste. This shows that Labour clearly are not very
good at getting the basics right.”
