Conservative represenatives for Walpole Ward
The Walpole Ward is represented by the hardworking team of Cllrs Ann Chapman, John Cowing and Ashok Kapoor. They were part of the previous Conservative Administration, which cleaned up Ealing and resurfaced your roads after years of Labour neglect.
That same Conservatives Administration commissioned the Westside Young People’s Centre; refurbished Ealing Central Library; refurbished West Ealing library; campaigned with residents to save the other libraries; created the Heritage Quarter; started the Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park projects.
Ann, John and Ashok are keen to prioritise resurfacing roads in the neighbourhood again and welcome the Conservative pledge to abolish Labour’s £40 garden tax and bring back a weekly collection service.
They also welcome the commitment to get rid of the street drinking culture especially as it is a problem in the local parks.
They look forward to continuing to deliver for Walpole residents.
Councillor Ann Chapman has represented Walpole ward since 2006. She lives in the ward with her husband. Ann’s approach is to be visible and hands-on, making things happen wherever possible.

Ann keeps a close eye on Walpole and Lammas parks.
