Last week I touched on the Labour gimmick of freezing council tax in the eight London boroughs they control and suggested that, actually, if you wanted value and quality services you were better sticking with Conservative authorities that already had a track record.
As I reported in June the developers had requested the Mayor take responsibility for deciding their application to build a hotel on Falcon Road.
The Clapham Junction Transport Hub Team was formally launched this morning (although they have been operational for a month). Kit Malthouse, the Deputy Mayor with responsibility for policing came down to Lavender Hill police station and Clapham Junction.
After Tuesday night’s BATCA Open Forum I was pointed in the direction of Sadiq Khan’s website, and, specifically, his coverage of the news that Tooting town centre is to get its own police team.
It’s not a commonly celebrated day, perhaps because it isn’t generally associated with drinking copious amounts of alcohol, but it’s St George’s Day today.
Some more good news for Tooting Town Centre: it will soon have its own dedicated police team, similar to the Safer Neighbourhood Teams in each of the borough’s wards.
As I posted via Posterous earlier, Boris Johnson came to Clapham Junction to formally announce the East London Line would be extended to SW11.
