My Queen's Gate

Queen's Gate Councillors have just been elected and are getting started with City Living, Local Life.

Older people’s isolation is a significant priority in Queen’s Gate ward, as identified in a survey of all residents in the ward (see details below). Christ Church Kensington has been funded to offer support to isolated older residents in the ward. Eighteen residents are being supported on a regular basis with outings or home visits and other social gatherings. Councillors have also supported the promotion of uniformed organisations in the borough. Total expenditure last year was £9,302.40

Residents of Queen’s Gate ward completed a ward-wide survey during 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. Since not all of the issues raised by residents are all related, Councillors are looking to address these under themes and will await cooperation from different departments in the Council. However, at least two issues are being explored further: waste and traffic issues around Gloucester Road (North) and isolation amongst older people. Please come back and visit this area of the City Living, Local Life website to get updates on progress. You can leave comments, suggestions or ideas that you might have for Queen’s Gate ward by completing the ideas form, alternatively you can email QueensGate@rbkc.gov.uk.
