Bryanston & Dorset Square

About our ward 

Bryanston & Dorset Square stretches from Edgware Road (West) to Gloucester Place (East) and Oxford Street (South) to Rossmore Road (North) with Westminster Council House at Marylebone Road. We have a small but very enthusiastic committee including the older and younger generations, professionals and pensioners, together with three experienced councillors. We hold regular social events such as the Annual Garden Party and the Hollowe'en Party where guest speakers are well known politicians, including our local MP, Mark Field. We campaign on both national and local issues throughout the year.

An New, easier to use Website

Since the election residents have been telling us about the frustrations they have with the Council’s website and online services. We agreed with them and dedicated an entire cabinet portfolio to improving our online offer.

On your bike!

We want to make Westminster one of the most cycle friendly parts of the capital. Not only is it good for your heath, getting pollutant traffic off our streets is one of the main ways we’re going to improve air quality.

Dockless bikes across Westminster

Dockless bikes such as Lime Bike, Mobike and oBike, not to be confused with the ‘Boris Bikes’ can often be seen left on our streets. Although Westminster promotes active and sustainable journeys and encourages people to walk and cycle, it has not given these multiple dockless cycle hire operators

Reporting suspicious behaviour to the police

We are often asked by residents about the best way to report suspicious behaviour to the Police. We have consulted them and been told that if a crime is in the process of taking place then you should ring ‘999’. If the offence has happened, then you should ring ‘101’. 

Electric vehicles and car sharing

Given the increased media attention to environmental issues, we are frequently asked about what WCC is doing to help. We have a range of initiatives including providing more electric vehicle charging points than any other London borough.

Marking Dementia Week

The number of people living with dementia is increasing year upon year and we must do more as a nation to make our most vulnerable citizens and their families feel safe and cherished.

Clean Air for All

Air quality is just as much of a priority for you as it is for us - this is why it is at the top of our agenda for Westminster.

Idling vehicles are some of the worst offenders when it comes to dirtying the air we breathe, so Westminster Conservatives are cracking down on them hard.
