Hanger Hill

With the retirement of the long standing Hanger Hill Cllr Diana Pagan, the Conservatives continue to be ably represented by Cllr Nigel Summer, who is now joined by Joy Morrissey and Cllr Greg Stafford. 

Joy, Greg and Nigel are deeply concerned that residents have to fight to protect their green spaces and the laissez faire attitude of the Planning Department when dealing with developers.

The downgrading of park cleaning is also worrying, when coupled with the inconsistent nature of the waste and recycling collection.  Over 5,000 residents, many from the Hanger Hill ward signed a petition against Labour’s £40 Garden Tax, which the Conservatives have pledge to abolish. 

Many of the homes in the ward have leafy trees, which is what makes Ealing so green and beautiful.  Charging residents to collect their garden waste was therefore counterproductive as many residents have stopped helping to keep the area in front of their houses tidy, as they have to pay to get the leaves collected.

Over the past four years, there has been a noticeable neglect of the centre of the Borough by the Labour Administration who has prioritising the outer wards for investment and improvement.

The Conservatives campaigned with residents to save the Libraries; started the Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park projects; are committed to redevelop Ealing Broadway station. 

With your support on Thursday, 22 May, Joy, Greg and Nigel are committed to delivering the six key pledges of a Conservative Administration:

  • 1.  Fix the street cleaning and waste collection
  • 2.  Scrap Labour’s £40 Garden Tax
  • 3.  Freeze Council Tax for 4 more years
  • 4.  Freeze all parking charges for 4 years
  • 5.  Spend £10M more than Labour fixing our roads and pavements
  • 6.  Get rid of the street drinking culture
