Our city has more rough sleepers on its streets than the next four highest London boroughs combined. Despite doing much good outreach work in this area, Westminster Council faces an uphill battle if it cannot stem the number of rough sleepers becoming entrenched in a street lifestyle.
Noise and vibrations from underground trains have had an intolerable effect on the quality of life for local people in pockets of the constituency for a number of years. Despite our best efforts, London Underground has been unwilling to take meaningful action to address this long-standing issue.
Away from the bigger challenges of crime, rough sleeping and poor air quality are the smaller, but no less important, issues that matter to local people, such as broadband connectivity and pedicab regulation.
