My Abingdon

In 2013, Abingdon ward councillors focused attention on supporting small improvements to the local area that would achieve high impact. With this in mind, they contributed towards a review of Abingdon’s Conservation Area Policy via the Edwardes Square and Scarsdale Abingdon Association by funding an architectural historian to assist in the review. Councillors also funded a volunteer maintained weather station in Pembroke Square and match funded the enhancement of gardens surrounding Chatsworth Court Garden by the Earl’s Court Road. Councillors also committed to coordinating the promotion of uniformed youth organisations and other activities for young people, both in the ward and in the borough.

Total spend for the 2013 calendar year in Abingdon ward was £13,580.38.
