Clean Air Day and the Fight Against Air Pollution

Despite World Cup fervour gripping the country, I am sure it will not have escaped your attention that today is Clean Air Day! To mark the occasion, I thought I would share some recent thoughts on a subject very close the hearts of many residents and one which I am regularly asked about.

The Government's Rough Sleeping Initiative

I am delighted to write that yesterday the Communities Secretary, James Brokenshire MP, announced that the Government will be allocating £534,466 to Westminster Council and £215,348 to the City from its Rough Sleeping Initiative fund.

Local Flooding

Recent days have seen the sun and warm weather emphatically punctuated by torrential rain and lightning storms which have, unfortunately, led to some basement flooding in the SW1 area.
