Ruislip High Street – Resurface Second Phase

Posted by on May 7, 2017 in Ickenham, Roads & Pavement, Ruislip, West Ruislip |

With careful planning and financial commitment, not wishing to cause major disruption in the run up to and during Christmas 2016, we are pleased to have been able to secure the resurfacing of the High Street from Ickenham Road to Bury Street in March.

This essential structural work will make the traffic experience for residents and visitors alike, a far better one and will improve the “look” of that end of the High Street. Your Councillors have been instrumental in ensuring that this work is done, as we have done with the many roads resurfaced in our ward.

Ward Budget funding for local initiatives

Posted by on May 7, 2017 in Education, Ward Budget, West Ruislip |

Once again it is with great pleasure that your councillors are able to announce our providing funding to a number of local schools and other organisations for specific projects to benefit the community. Our successful financial stewardship has again enabled us to make funding available for these ward based payments for individual items and projects that we have identified or have been suggested to us.

So far we have been able to assist our schools, youth groups, community projects and many other organisations. Before Christmas, we were very pleased to be able to award a grant to Bishop Winnington Ingram primary school to support the provision of a new games area.

Whilst other councils are reducing services and closing facilities, here in Hillingdon we continue to go from strength to strength.

Our budget for 2017/18 has once again frozen Council Tax for all of our residents for a ninth successive year and up to and including 2018/19 (twelve years in total) for those over 65 years of age. We have also, once again, declined to raise tax through the Social Care Precept for all residents. With regard to fees and charges, parking charges were again frozen for residents and other fees set at a maximum rate of 90% of the average charges of our neighbouring councils.

Another successful Street Surgery

Posted by on Mar 12, 2017 in Councillor Surgeries, Hillingdon, West Ruislip |

On Saturday 11th March, from 11:30 – 13:30, West Ruislip Councillors held one of our regular Ward Street Surgeries, this time for residents in The Greenway and Oak Avenue. We were delighted to welcome and meet over 20 residents who brought many local issues to discuss. We had a great time meeting and talking to residents and were able to use as a rallying point our new “banner” which was strategically placed for maximum attention.

We would like to thank all those residents who attended and look forward to our forthcoming Street Surgeries throughout the Ward – West Ruislip Councillors.
