The connection and communication between residents and Camden Council is very important to Holborn Voice. We belive that by working together we can make our area a better place to live and work.
Holborn Voice asked Cllr Julian Fulbrook to give us a new year's message.
Best wishes for the New Year to all readers of the Holborn Voice.
It has been another very tough year at Camden Town Hall, with a quarter of the Council's revenue funding swept away in the current national austerity programme, and now more cuts looming. Despite these pressures, the Council has been fighting back; for example in December alone we agreed a report that will open over 400 new primary school places and will build over 400 new homes.
In Holborn we are resolutely working with local parents and the Institute of Education towards the new secondary school at Wren Street, so long overdue, as well as building new Council homes on the Bourne and at Tybald's.
However, there are plenty of battles ahead in 2014, including the struggle against the closure of our local fire station and the determined cross-border campaign against the monstrous plans for the Royal Mail site.
Please keep us in touch with your concerns, by emailing us, dropping into a surgery, or seeing us at local meetings.
