What the Conservatives want
Landfill waste to continue to be collected fortnightly in a wheelie bin, food waste to continue to be collected weekly in a caddy, but recycling materials collected fortnightly on a complicated alternative week system. Batteries and textiles will no longer be collected at all, residents will be expected to take them to other places to recycle them.
UPDATE: This petition has now been submitted to Kingston Council. Many thanks to everyone who signed it.
Local Lib Dem MP Ed Davey has launched a petition to stop the Tory-run Council from paving over a section of the Fairfield opposite Kingston Library. The proposals are set out as part of a Council commissioned development brief for the “Eden Quarter”.
New high-rise development planned
Plans drafted by Kingston Council would see the historic Monday Market moved to a new paved area on the Fairfield. The current site of the Monday Market, on the Kingfisher car park, would be dug up, sold off and replaced with developments as high as 12 storeys.
The tower block would be higher than any other building in close proximity to the Cattle Market, overshadowing the Fairfield and would see a drastic transformation to the local skyline.

Plans backed by the Conservative Deputy Mayor for Housing at City Hall propose to build up to 70,000 homes in Chessington and create a new London ‘suburb’ across the green belt.
According to the Mayor of London, every Londoner should live within 400m of a bus stop with a good bus service. Many residents in Surbiton and Chessington not only live over 400m from a bus stop, but the service is very poor. The K4 bus only runs every half an hour with no service on Sunday!
