Your Labour Councillors
Councillor: Angela Ireland
After spending years representing my area of West Hill in Wandsworth’s resident participation structure, I am proud to be a member of the Council’s Housing Committee. I aim to ensure that all residents have a chance to influence the decisions made about their homes. I believe it is essential to listen to the views of all users of council services. We need more meaningful consultation about decisions that affect us all.
Councillor: Peter Carpenter
Wandsworth’s planning system shapes new development all over our community. As a member of the Council’s Planning Committee I will do my utmost to ensure that new development is in the public interest. As the son of a bricklayer I am passionate about building more affordable homes. We need homes local residents can really afford.

This is a dangerous junction with limited visibility close to three schools, medical facilities and bus stops. Support our petition
