Update on Marylebone Station

Update on Seymour Leisure Centre and Library

In keeping with residents in the district, your Councillors strongly support the upgrade to facilities at the Seymour Leisure Centre. We had thought we had a plan for the Library, based on the 2017-18 public consultation.

Dockless bikes

Dockless bike companies such as Lime Bike, Mobike and oBike - not to be confused with the ‘Boris Bikes’ - are turning up on our streets at random.

Update on Oxford Street

Richard Beddoe, our Ward Councillor and Cabinet Member for Place Shaping and Planning, has spent the last year working on the Oxford Street District Plan.

Housing for All

Westminster needs more homes, this is why your Conservative run council has an ambitious plan to build 2000 new homes in our city.

An New, easier to use Website

Since the election residents have been telling us about the frustrations they have with the Council’s website and online services. We agreed with them and dedicated an entire cabinet portfolio to improving our online offer.

On your bike!

We want to make Westminster one of the most cycle friendly parts of the capital. Not only is it good for your heath, getting pollutant traffic off our streets is one of the main ways we’re going to improve air quality.
