Conservatives ignore St Helier in spending spree

As Prime Minister Boris Johnson excludes St Helier Hospital from his £1.8 billion NHS announcement this week, Sutton Liberal Democrats say the Conservatives are abandoning Sutton's NHS.

The list of 20 hospitals around England includes only two allocations for London: in north-east London and for Croydon University Hospital. Not a penny has been announced for St Helier Hospital.

Wandle Valley parking update

By Councillors Ben Andrew, Vincent Galligan & Hanna Zuchowska

Due to parking pressures in St Helier, a residents only parking scheme is being proposed on the streets around the hospital.

When this scheme is introduced, it is possible that parking problems will be shifted further away, so that roads outside of this scheme will soak up the problems instead. For this reason, the council originally proposed a “free bay CPZ” scheme for streets further away from the hospital.
