Ladywell Hustings tomorrow - come to hear what the candidates are promising

 At tomorrow evening’s Ladywell hustings meeting (at Prendergast Hilly Fields College) questions will be asked, by the public, to candidates standing for election in Ladywell Ward in the 22 May Borough Elections.
Each party will be given 5 minutes to explain what their priorities will be if elected; what commitments they’re prepared to make, in advance of the election; and what skills, experience and local knowledge they can bring to bear.  Then questions will be asked, covering some or all of the following:
  • supporting the local business community
  • tackling the poor quality of shopfronts and signage
  • the Ladywell CPZ
  • empty business and residential properties
  • the maintenance of parks
  • enforcement of the 20mph speed limit
  • aircraft noise
  • public realm contracts and communication between the Council and residents
  • the London Living Wage and zero hours contracts
  • the use of Private Finance Initiatives (PFIs)
  • affordable housing
This meeting, which will take place at Prendergast Hilly Fields College, Adelaide Avenue between 7.00-9.00pm on Thursday 15 May, has been organised by the Ladywell Village Improvement Group and the Ladywell Society for the benefit of local residents
