Borough & Bankside

BOROUGH AND BANKSIDE: Borough and Bankside is one of the top cultural, historic and culinary destinations in London – but first and foremost it is home to thousands of residents. The Liberal Democrats will continue standing up for residents and our communities when new developments are being planned and ensure investment raised locally stays in Borough and Bankside. We will also fight to bring back sustainable local transport. 

  • Put residents at the heart of consultation. We will ensure developers consult properly with residents by dedicating a council planning officer to Borough and Bankside to promote community engagement and outreach. We will also create an enforcement team for the ward.

 

  • Bring back greener community transport. We will work with TfL to bring back a zero-emission community bus for our ward. We will explore the potential of working with cultural venues in South Bank and Bankside to create a route, like the RV1, that serves tourists and local residents. 

 

  • Ensure Borough and Bankside money stays here. We will fight to keep all the funding raised through development for community infrastructure. This will allow us to better protect and enhance our green and open spaces, and invest in community facilities.
