Questions from Members


Councillor Samantha Davies to ask Councillor Samia Chaudhary, Cabinet Member for Green Policy and Leisure

“Could the Cabinet Member for Green Policy and Leisure confirm that under no circumstances will this Council agree to the permanent sale or disposal of any council owned park in the London Borough of Hounslow?”


Councillor Gerald McGregor to ask Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of the Council

Would the Leader of the Council confirm that he is not aware of any plans to close West Middlesex, Ealing or Charing Cross Hospitals?



Councillor John Todd to ask Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of the Council

LAM004 Lampton Development 360 LLP Business Plan 2017-2022; LAM005 Lampton Investment 360 Ltd Business Plan 2017-2022:  This Cabinet report and related business plans (the latter dated July 2017) were approved by cabinet on the 10th October 2017. In July 2017 RSM, consultants to LBH, produced a report highlighting matters of material concern regarding the operation, viability, the need for further assessment including profitability and sensitive analysis and matters concerning the governance of the Lampton entities highlighted above including Lampton FM and Lampton Recycle 360 Ltd. The report, amongst other things states:


“There remains a lack of clarity or formal arrangements about how much contribution the Lampton Group might be expected to generate, or how it will be shared between its owners – the Council – and the companies themselves.”


Would Councillor Curran give details about the implementation, if any, of these crucial RSM recommendations (including such details as how many and when)?



Councillor Gurmail Lal to ask Councillor Kamaljit Kaur, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, Health Services and Public Health

Please can the Cabinet Member provide an update on what the Council is doing to prevent diabetes in the borough and how effective these measures have been?



Councillor Bandna Chopra to ask Councillor Candice Atterton, the Cabinet Member for Jobs, Skills and Opportunities

Please can the Cabinet Member provide an update on the work the Council is undertaking to combat the scourge of Domestic Violence?




Proposed by Councillor Candice Atterton and Seconded by Councillor Corinna Smart

“This Council is concerned at Royal Mail’s proposal to close the Chiswick Delivery Office and transfer its operations to Bollo Lane. Such a closure would seriously inconvenience Chiswick residents and local businesses in the area which rely on the current location of the Delivery Office.


This Council urges Royal Mail to postpone the closure and to seek alternative accommodation elsewhere on Chiswick High Road, and instructs the Cabinet Member for Jobs, Skills and Opportunities to write to the Chief Executive of Royal Mail informing her of the Council’s concern.”



Proposed by Councillor Gerald McGregor and Seconded by Councillor Sam Hearn

This Council conscious that shoppers and cyclists do not mix urges Transport for London to withdraw its current plans for Cycle Superhighway which involves the destruction of the town centre of Chiswick and to return to the Abercrombie plan by placing Cycle Super highway down the Great West Road, with continuous separated cycle tracks, from Hammersmith to Hounslow West.


Proposed by Councillor Sam Hearn and Seconded by Councillor Gerald McGregor

This Council calls for an urgent review by officers of the licensing of (Houses in Multiple Occupation) HMOs in the London Borough of Hounslow that are owned by not for profit organisations, with the initial results of that review coming to the next Borough Council.



Any Other Matters That the Mayor Considers Urgent
