ST GEORGE’S: The Liberal Democrats will help residents with disrepair issues. We will formally protect and enhance the few green spaces our ward has left. We want to safeguard them from potential developments. Our ambitions to open a new community centre will help empower the residents of St George’s ward.
- One of the biggest issues for our residents is the inadequate service for home repairs. The Liberal Democrats will introduce a dedicated complex repairs team to deal with disrepair in Southwark’s housing. Our ward needs a team that understands these problems and has the authority to authorise work quickly.
- Looking after the precious green spaces we have left. We will formally protect green spaces such as those found in West Square, Dodson and Amigo Estate, Lancaster Estate and Elliott’s Row Pocket Park.
- Empowering the community. We will work to create a community centre to replace the facility lost in Elephant and Castle. It would provide a range of activities that reflects the diversity of residents in or near St George’s ward and can also operate as a face-to-face contact site for council customer service.
Enhancing our amenities. We will continue to support formal 'Friends' type groups as well as 'ad hoc' local environmental groups through direct support and establishing links and networks. The Liberal Democrats will assist residents in setting up a Friends of St Mary’s Churchyard group.
