Marking Dementia Week

The number of people living with dementia is increasing year upon year and we must do more as a nation to make our most vulnerable citizens and their families feel safe and cherished.

Clean Air for All

Air quality is just as much of a priority for you as it is for us - this is why it is at the top of our agenda for Westminster.

Idling vehicles are some of the worst offenders when it comes to dirtying the air we breathe, so Westminster Conservatives are cracking down on them hard.

New secure bike storage planned in Pimlico

There is a growing demand for secure bike storage across our area. The council is working to provide new lockable bike sheds and hangars (like the one pictured).

The Westminster Mile

For second year running, the Westminster Mile was largest one-mile run in the world. More than 11,000 people ran the one-mile stretch including many of your local Conservative councillors.

Protecting local heritage in Pimlico

Last year Cllr Gassanly intervened when a historic boundary stone in Holbein Place was mistakenly removed during road works. Cllr Gassanly was alerted to the fact by an eagle-eyed local resident and the stone was placed back to its original location.

Improving traffic management on Churchill Gardens

The new Traffic Management Order (TMO) on Churchill Gardens Estate has now gone live. The Order will bring public highway parking enforcement across the estate, ensuring that only residents with valid permits, bona fide visitors and contractors are able to park in the TMO area.
