Churchill

About our ward

Churchill ward is on the western edge of the Cities of London & Westminster constituency. It stretches from the River Thames all the way to lower Belgravia.

It is currently represented by one Conservative, Murad Gassanly, and two Labour councillors.

Campaigns

Turn Balmoral Castle site into Homes for the elderly!

Support Councillor Murad Gassanly’s call for the Balmoral Castle site to be turned into Homes for the elderly!

There is a particular shortage of sheltered accommodation and community-supported homes for our ageing population and those living with disabilities in Churchill Gardens.

Support the Ebury Bridge Development Project!

Churchill Conservatives welcome the Council’s decision to proceed with the Ebury Bridge estate project. This is a great opportunity to increase the amount of affordable housing on the estate.

News

Council implements leafing clearing plan

You may have noticed that our trees have started to shed their leaves. From 5th November, Westminster City County began implementing its ‘Leafing Plan’.

Armistice Remembrance

The weekend of 9th – 11th November saw Westminster Council commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War. As a Council, we work very closely with the Armed Forces supporting a number of initiatives.

Churchill Policing Update

Churchill Conservatives joined our colleagues across Westminster in the campaign to save Belgravia Police Station. Sadly, the Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan refused to listen to us and is continuing with the planned closure.

Ebury Bridge for all - An update from Cllr Gassanly

I strongly welcome Westminster Council’s decision to go ahead with building 750 new homes as part of its Ebury Bridge estate development. At least 342 of these will be affordable housing.

Improving care at home when you need it

We want to make sure all our elderly get the best care possible. Westminster City Council set up a new team earlier this year to work both with organisations providing care for people at home, and with residential care homes.

Balmoral Castle Petition Update

As your local Conservative councillor I have been campaigning for the Balmoral Castle site on Churchill Gardens estate to be used for sheltered and community-supported social housing. Last year I organised a petition which was signed by over 300 Churchill Gardens residents.

Leader's Update October 2018

Dear resident

Four months ago, the people of Westminster had their say in the hardest fought local election for many years. I am delighted and humbled that they overwhelmingly chose to put their trust once again in the local Conservatives to run their council.
