What is most important to our communities?

What is most important to our communities?

  • Everyone should have access to opportunities and services such as housing, employment, education, health and social care. Everyone across the borough should have the chance to fulfil their aspirations.
  • Most people feel Kensington and Chelsea is a great place to live and work. Residents want to see the borough’s unique and attractive surroundings maintained and businesses supported.
  • Community spaces and public buildings are important as they bring people together. The Council needs to protect them.
  • The Council should provide more social and affordable housing for local people, and improve and repair council homes.
  • Young people should have the best start in life, have a great education and should be supported to achieve their ambitions.
  • The Council does a good job of keeping the streets clean and collecting rubbish, these should be maintained.
  • There is concern about rising crime and anti-social behaviour in the borough - residents want to feel safe.
  • Getting a job and the right skills is important, especially for young people. People need support to address barriers to work and education.
  • Health and wellbeing are really important. Everyone should have access to sports and leisure facilities, including parks and open spaces.
  • The Council needs to change - it needs to communicate better with residents, involve local people in decisions, be sensitive to local needs and differences and employ more local people.
