Welcome to Ealing Central & Acton Lib Dems

This site has news and information about the Liberal Democrats in the Ealing Central & Acton constituency.

Following boundary changes, the constituency now covers Acton, Southfield, Ealing Common, Walpole, Hanger Hill and Ealing Broadway. The Shepherds Bush part of the previous Ealing, Acton & Shepherds Bush constituency is no longer within our constituency.

Jon Ball, who was the Lib Dem candidate at the general election in May 2010, is the parliamentary spokesperson for Ealing Central and Acton. At the election Jon polled 13,041, which is the highest vote ever recorded for a Liberal or Liberal Democrat in the area; it now requires a swing of just over 5% for the Liberal Democrats to win.

    Despite there being many reasons why Ealing Council should not close Carlton Road Day Centre, a Council committee decided to shut the day centre this week.

    In the meeting it was clear that when shut, the users, many who have profound physical and learning disabilities, will be offered sub standard care elsewhere - many outside the borough. Some locations are not suitable for the many users who have wheelchairs. Also the social element to the day centre will be lost when users are split up and forced to locations individually or in small groups.

    It is expected that the day centre will close this Summer and the building will be sold by Ealing Council, possibly for expensive flats.

    It is a scandal that Labour-run Ealing Council continue to close day centres especially when we have shown that there are alternatives to providing the quality service at the same location or elsewhere in the borough. In a meeting recently, one senior Labour Councillor said: "We will do worse things in the future." Scandalous.

    The Liberal Democrats thank all of those who have shown an interest in this issue and helped in the campaign collecting signatures and delivering leaflets about the matter.

    Despite the rain and the cold weather, it was a wonderful Southfield Ward Forum meeting in St Albans Church. Since the church was saved from being converted into a number of luxury flats we looked forward to using the venue for public meetings.

    The meeting was kicked off by Rev Mike Tufnell who updated residents of future events to be held in the large church. Although I am not religious, churches like St Albans are amazing places due to the arhitecture and the stained glass windows. The next Ward Panel meeting that will take place in the church we hope to be in the Summer.

    Councillor Gary Malcolm, Liberal Democrat Leader, has slammed Labour's plans to introduce a fortnightly rubbish collection.

    In Council papers about the Cabinet meeting next Tuesday you can see that Labour want to introduce a fortnightly rubbish collection despite them previously saying they were against the idea!

    This would be a bad move for many reasons:
