No to Nine Elms Bridge

First, a very BIG thanks to all residents who went to the Nine Elms Bridge promoters’ exhibition at St Saviour’s Church Hall and Pimlico Academy in July to tell the promoters what the people of Pimlico think about a bridge landing on one of our few riverside spaces.  We hope that the promoters ha

Speeding traffic in St George's Drive

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.

Update on Glastonbury House

A huge amount of work is being done in Glastonbury House, the tall building at the top of Warwick Way which provides sheltered housing for our older residents. The work in this Council-run block includes installation of a sprinkler system, replacement of external cladding, creation of an indoor s

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.

Striving to improve Pimlico's air quality

We share residents’ concerns about the poor air quality in Pimlico. We are delighted that the Council’s #DontBeIdle campaign to persuade more drivers to turn off their engines while parked at the kerb is going from strength to strength.
