The area around Shooters Hill parade of shops is neglected and underinvested

The area behind is unpaved and attracts antisocial behaviour. Fly-tipped rubbish builds up continually.

On the street side the paving is in a terrible state and dangerous to pedestrians. The council has completely neglected the area for decades.

Kidbrooke deserves better!

Local charities are struggling and need our support

30th April 2020

The Green Party welcomes the support for charities, recently announced by the chancellor of the exchequer. But there seems to be no pot set aside for direct grants to smaller local charities. These charities provide valuable services for their communities, often filling the gap created by the absence of appropriate government-led support. A case study: Greenwich Housing Rights During the last 10 years, the legal advice sector has had a sharp decrease in funding. This is because of austerity measures, […]
