Improving Access To Broadband

No Comments »

I have been working with officers and local stakeholders to improve access to broadband across the West End and Westminster as a whole.

As part of the recent work we have undertaken, Soho residents in the CityWest Homes blocks of Dufours Place, Ingestre Court and Kemp House are receiving an offer from Community Fibre to install ultrafast broadband in their blocks over the next few months.

Companies including Community Fibre, G Networks and Hyperoptic are working with the Council and landowners to provide a range of different options to residents and businesses in the West End.

In my role as the Lead Member for Broadband on Westminster City Council I have been working with industry stakeholders to make ultrafast and high-speed internet, including fibre-based connections, available more widely across the city and to prepare for 5G mobile connectivity.

Local action on rough sleeping is working

No Comments »

I have been working alongside Conservative colleagues on Westminster City Council to deal with rough sleeping across the West End.

Action by Westminster Conservatives to tackle rough sleeping across the West End and the city means that 75% of those contacted do not spend a second night out on the street.

The Council spends over £6m a year to help rough sleepers find sustainable accommodation and to tackle mental and physical problems.

Despite the work already being done to reduce the issue I continue to raise concerns with officers when I see tents or other rough sleeping-related incidents.

If you come across any related issues please do not hesitate to contact me.
