Brighter Borough for All

We all share the same desire for the place where we live to be the best it can be.

A place that is clean, safe and easy to get around. Somewhere with great schools and parks. A place where people of all backgrounds get on, that is affordable and where people can make the most of what is around them.

That is why your council is here: to do everything we can to improve Wandsworth as a place to live, visit, work and study. 

It is a big job and, even though we don’t always get everything right, we care passionately about doing the right thing for you and your family. These days with less money at our disposal that job is getting tougher which sometimes means having to make difficult choices while looking to do things differently.

That is why I hope that you will spend a few minutes to read our current plans and priorities for your borough and then let us know what you think. In doing so I want this to be part of a bigger conversation about the type of place we want Wandsworth to be and how we can to get the best out of where we live. Over the next few months we are going to be getting out and about to listen to as many people as possible.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

Cllr Ravi Govindia
Leader of Wandsworth Council
