Shocking new figures have revealed that Camden residents will have to wait much longer for a fire engine in an emergency due to Tory fire station closure plans. The London Fire Brigade have released a ward by ward breakdown of the increased response times that will result from the Mayor of London’s plans to cut 12 fire stations, including Belsize and Clerkenwell.
Camden council will take a major step forward in enhancing digital services for residents through a new deal with Arqiva to deliver public Wi-Fi to streets and open spaces across the borough.
Camden has led a group of 17 Councils across London to secure deals that will provide a wireless network where residents, businesses and visitors will be able to access 30 minutes of free Wi-Fi services every day using registered devices such as smartphones, laptops and tablets.
Camden’s Labour Group held its annual general meeting this evening.
