My Pembridge

Pembridge Councillors have just been elected and are getting started with City Living, Local Life.

Pembridge Ward Councillors are keen to find out more from local residents about what would help make the ward a better place. A survey was developed and this revealed that outreach work with older and isolated residents was a strong priority with nearly fifty percent of people indicating this issue to be important. The majority of comments related to traffic and road safety. Other suggestions included better management of rubbish clearance, trees/greenery and dogs. There was support for community events and projects for children and young people.

Councillors allocated £8,325.21 of their ward budget in 2013.

 Pembridge ward survey

Residents of Pembridge ward completed a ward-wide survey during the summer 2012.  The report below shows responses to the questions asked as well as comments made by residents.  Ward Councillors are working with Council officers to follow up specific issues raised by residents and where possible hope to seek officer support to resolve these.  The City Living, Local Life website will provide updates on progress.
