Earlier today, the Leader of Bexley’s Conservative Council met with the returned Conservative MPs for Old Bexley and Sidcup and Bexleyheath and Crayford.
Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE, Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP and Rt Hon David Evennett MP discussed a range of issues, including some of the successful achievements that were highlighted during the General Election.
These included unemployment being at its lowest rate for over 40 years and the support from residents for the recent Council budget increases for cutting grass, cleaning streets and improving roads and pavements. There was praise for the emergency services for their swift action in dealing with the terrorist attack at London Bridge.
During the meeting, there was also a discussion about the horrific fire in Kensington, and Cllr O’Neill was able to set out some of the action taken by Bexley Council to confirm with the Borough’s housing associations that all the appropriate risk assessments and fire safety checks were in place.
Staff from the London Borough of Bexley have also been providing help and support to the local council as they dealt with the many consequences of the awful incident.
