Wandsworth unveils £10m boost for public space

Wandsworth Council has unveiled plans for £10m worth of new investment in better neighbourhood services across the borough.

The money will be spent on improvements to parks and open spaces, town centres, and providing additional services at local libraries. The fund will help pay for further road repairs caused by snow and ice.

Councillors also decided to freeze council tax bills. This means that residents living on the southern side of the street in Wandsworth on Hazelbourne Road near Clapham South tube station, for example, will pay on average £600 less a year than those living on the other side of the road in Lambeth.

Council leader Ravi Govindia, said: “We are freezing most of the elements that make up our overall budget to ensure we continue to offer our residents the best value for money local services in the country.

“And at the same time we will be investing an extra £10m to make our borough even better. This additional money will help make a real difference to the quality of life of our residents.”
