Hyde Park

About our ward

Hyde Park Ward is bordered by the Bayswater Road, Gloucester Terrace, Marylebone Flyover and Edgware Road. It is home to Paddington Station, the development around Paddington Basin, St. Mary's Hospital (part of the Imperial College Healthcare Trust which is the UK's first Academic Health Science Centre) the only Hospital in the City of Westminster, and the bustle of Edgware Road. Crossrail will run under our streets.

Tucked amongst these landmarks are residential garden squares, flats, offices and local shops. We are a thriving and multiculturally diverse society with the peace of Hyde Park on our doorstep!

We, the local Conservatives, are a merry band always looking for innovative ways of fundraising and enjoying ourselves and welcome new members with open arms. We campaign on both local and national issues and keep in touch with electors through our publications and personal visits.

Sign up for our regular emails, full of interesting local news for people living in Hyde Park. You can opt out at any time and we won't share your email address with anyone else.

News

Shisha update

Officers from Westminster City Council, the Metropolitan Police and tax inspectors recently checked out 90 cafes providing shisha and confiscated suspected illegal tobacco from 45 of them. Other criminal offences were also investigated.

Please bear with us as broadband is upgraded!

We know that recent road closures and parking suspensions have been infuriating, so thank you for your patience as this work is completed. Improving broadband is vital to Westminster’s economy, home to many major company headquarters and three percent of UK GDP – more than the City of London.

Have your say on Edgware Road

Change is coming to the flyover junction on Edgware Road. The little-used subway under Edgware Road has been closed to stop anti-social behaviour there.

Multicolour Marble Arch!

For one night only, to celebrate Pride in London, Marble Arch turned into a rainbow of colours.

Housing for All

Westminster needs more homes, this is why your Conservative run council has an ambitious plan to build 2000 new homes in our city.
