Council Governance Review Panel-Wednesday 28 November

The next Governance Review meeting of RBKC Council allows members of the Public to share their vision of the way RBKC ought to operate. It will be on 28 November at 6.30 pm at the Town Hall and they are urging the public to attend.

Key questions that will be covered include:

  • Thinking about decisions that the Council makes on council services, what decisions would you particularly want to be involved in?
  • In the past, did you want to be involved in particular Council decisions and didn’t get the chance. What were these?
  • Are there any examples of when the Council has involved local people in decision-making that you thought worked well?
  • In general, what more could we do to involve you in our decision-making?
  • If you did want to be more involved in local decisions, what stops you?

Campaign Day-Sat 3 November 2018

This Saturday 3 November 2018 is a Labour Party “National Day of Action” and we would be delighted for you to join us.

We will be holding a street stall in Earl’s Court, our most marginal ward, from 10am until lunchtime where we will be talking to local residents and distributing leaflets.

We are meeting outside Earl’s Court tube station (Earl’s Court Road entrance) at 10am and erecting the stall nearby.

We were only 100 votes off winning Earl’s Court in the local elections this year so a continuous Labour presence is vital. We hope you can come and support our “shadow councillors” Bruno de Florence and Sam Batra in the ward.

North Kensington to get new secondary school

At long last, young people in North Kensington are to get a new Secondary School. The site earmarked for the non-denominational Academy with its own sports facilities is by Kensington Leisure Centre sports pitches. The Labour government’s Building School’s for the Future programme has guaranteed funding of £30 million…

Local resident and local Labour candidate Beinazir Lasharie says “for years many of our local young people have had to go to schools outside the Borough. They will go to school in North Kensington thanks to many years of lobbying by Labour Councillors and local parents”.

Yet our Liberal Democrat opponents try to claim responsibility for the new school in their newsletters. We have a track record of achievement and don’t need to take credit for others hard work. We would like to ask for them to exactly just ‘how’ they achieved what they have claimed?
