Cleaning up the streets of White Oak ward

While out and about meeting and greeting voters across White Oak ward for the Thursday March 2nd Town Council by-election, local people have been asking Lib Dem candidate Robert Woodbridge to help sort out all the daily 'quality of life' problems.

These include dumped mattresses and shopping trolleys, broken pavements and potholes, fallen-down fencing, and dilapidated street signs.



Other parties grandstand and boast about their work on these issues, yet evidence of their lack of activity is apparent for all to see across our estates. Indeed, the latest Conservative leaflet claims they are restoring street signs, but our latest photographs here prove otherwise.

Swanley Lib Dems have put forward several practical and viable solutions which we hope you will support:

1. All shopping trolleys dumped should be regularly collected by the local supermarkets to which they belong.

2. All dumped mattresses, damaged potholes and pavements have been reported by us to the relevant authorities and officers at Swanley Town, Sevenoaks District and Kent County councils.

3. We also propose that a lorry and skip regularly call on advertised dates and sites to collect mattresses, used bedding etc., from Swanley householders. This used to happen but was withdrawn some years back by Sevenoaks District Council. This would help to tackle the eyesores there for all to see.
