Your Coombe Vale Ward councillors are always here to help you
With your help, they identify issues within our Ward and bring them to the attention of the Council. Please help them by alerting them to anything that needs fixing. They also follow up individual resident’s problems raised at their monthly surgeries.
In the last year, they have advised and supported hundreds of local residents and groups on wide-ranging matters, including anti-social behaviour, traffic issues, roads and pavements, housing and benefits, and nursery and school provision. They have held street meets on parking and recycling, and facilitated community group meetings between schools and residents in the Groves area.
They hold regular meetings with local police, and they support the panels arranged by the Safer Neighbourhood Police team to re-enforce the message that residents are increasingly concerned about Coombe Vale burglaries.
Ward surgeries are held monthly
Ward surgeries are held on the second Saturday of the month (excluding August and December) at the Dickerage Road Recreation Ground. You can find out more about these surgeries, and other ways of obtaining assistance with local issues, here. To find out how to get in touch with your Councillors directly, please click here.
‘Positive feedback shows that we get things done’
Adrian Holder, Coombe Vale resident and Conservative councillor, says of the monthly ward surgeries set up to support residents:
It is our responsibility as your Ward Councillors to ensure that you get the best possible service from Kingston Council.During our regular Saturday surgeries we have dealt with issues ranging from rogue workmen to missing trees, from fly tipping to missing road signage, and countless other problems.It is also our responsibility to ensure that the very high Council Tax you pay is spent wisely on essential services rather than frittered away.In the last twelve months we have dealt with over 200 of your problems, which have been wide ranging.We try to respond to enquiries within three days, and constantly keep you updated until the issue is closed.
No appointment is necessary for Ward surgeries – but do bring any relevant paperwork with you. They will take up your problem or concern and, where appropriate, act on it.
