The present and future of Lambeth


On Saturday local Labour party members and councillors gathered to talk about how Labour is delivering on its manifesto promises and the future of Lambeth to 2010 and beyond. Alex Bigham, action team member for Stockwell was there to stand up for the needs of Stockwell residents.

There were lots of issues that came up, but there were some clear messages:

- More has to be done to tackle violent youth crime and gangs. There has been a 50% reduction in violent crime in Lambeth, but we shouldn't be complacent. We need to look at long term solutions, including better youth services and more routes into employment, as well as crackdowns on those who carry knives or guns.

- The housing services provided by Lambeth Living and housing associations have to improve their customer service. Tenants and residents must be treated as customers, not as irritants. Problems should be sorted out at the first time of asking, and within a clear timeframe.

- Our environment is our most precious asset. That means ensuring simple things, like bins get put back in their stores, but also we need to get our recycling rates up. Lambeth now has the toughest carbon reduction targets in London - it is all our responsibility to deliver these.

These are just headlines, and there are other priorities for the future - do let us know in the comments what you think Labour should be focussing on in Stockwell.
