HAMMERSMITH BRIDGE CLOSURE
The closure of Hammersmith Bridge is causing great inconvenience to local residents, especially since the emergency closure to pedestrians and cyclists in August.
The bridge is owned by Hammersmith and Fulham Council, and maintained by Transport for London. Neither has the funds to pay for repairs or a temporary bridge, so the Government will have to step in to fund them. Sarah Olney is calling on the Department for Transport to address this urgently.
Sarah is also working with TfL to reduce the impact on local residents while the bridge is being repaired.
NO TO HEATHROW EXPANSION
Sarah Olney opposed building a third runway at Heathrow Airport.
Sarah was delighted to be in front of the Royal Courts of Justice on February 27 when the Appeals Court ruled against the Government, saying they had unlawfully ignored the Paris Agreement in their proposal. Sarah hopes this judgment will put an end to the third runway for good.
Whether it does or not, Sarah will continue to fight for better air quality and noise reduction in Parliament.
LOCAL HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS
Sarah Olney is working with local communities to make sure that new developments are in line with the needs of the community.
With major developments planned in North Sheen, Mortlake and Kingston, it is vital that elected representatives at all levels work together to make sure that local residents' voices are heard and their interests protected.
SHAPING A POSITIVE AND BENEFICIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH EUROPE
Sarah Olney opposed Brexit. Now that we are leaving the EU, Sarah wants to make sure that our UK businesses, students, travellers and consumers are protected. She will continue to promote openness, cooperation and friendship with our closest neighbours.
PUBLIC SERVICES THAT WORK FOR EVERYONE
Years of underfunding had brought health, education and policing provision to a crisis point even before Covid-19 hit.
We urgently need to increase funding for children's mental health, special needs education, and community policing.
We need competent leadership at ministerial level in health, education and public safety to build gold standard services.
A STRONG RESPONSE TO THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY
We have to act now to address the climate emergency. Sarah Olney supports immediate and ambitious action and not just more hot air.
We need to recover from the Covid crisis in a way that supports the fight against climate change.
