Kingston Conservative Leader's 2005 words come back to haunt him. This week, Liberal Democrat Leader, Cllr. Liz Green, is making public a letter sent from Cllr.Kevin Davis.
Councillor Green explains.......
Lib Dem councillors Rachel Reid and Malcolm Self pen an open letter to Conservative Leader Kevin Davis, appealing for residents voices to be heard before the Conservative Council considers major Tolworth planning applications.
I am sure like me, you value our local community in Tolworth, Hook, Chessington and Surbiton. We live in a fantastic location within the Royal Borough of Kingston. I am proud to be a part of this community and want to ensure that the local people who make up this community, have their say in how it is shaped.

It is a well established fact that local Liberal Democrats are committed to the local communities they represent. And celebrating twenty years since they devolved local decision making to Neighbourhoods, the mantra to listen and involve residents is still very much alive in Lib Dem run South of the Borough Neighbourhood.
Liberal Democrat campaigners are celebrating at the news that Tesco have decided against building a superstore by Tolworth roundabout. Instead, Tesco plan to develop the whole site for much-needed housing.

The Red Lion Road Industrial Estate has long since grown past being a small, local industrial area employing people from the local community. Like many other industrial estates, it now comprises a great many warehouse and distribution facilities. These facilities by their very nature encourage a high volume of large heavy goods vehicles which are totally unsuited to the residential roads that surround the Red Lion Road Industrial Estate.
