Hounslow Conservatives Announce Manifesto Pledges on Tax & Finance


Hounslow Conservatives plan to restore proper financial control to Hounslow Council in place of the chaotic mismanagement presided over by Labour.  In 2017/18 the Council overspent by £7m. Much more than the sum raised by this year’s council tax increase.

Conservatives' Manifesto Launched: A Better Deal for Hounslow

Few things illustrate more effectively the incompetence of Hounslow Council under Labour than the miasma of failure that surrounds Lampton 360 Ltd. This company was set up in 2012 as Hounslow’s trading arm and has with its subsidiaries soaked up millions of pounds and delivered very little.

Lampton 360 Development plans to build 844 new homes. Although a start is soon to be made on one site it has so far failed to lay a single brick.

These so called “poor doors” are a complete anathema to Labour when private developers suggest them. One shudders to think what Momentum will have to say about this.
