New data from Camden Labour suggests that council neglect and anti-social behaviour are the main concerns of residents in the Haverstock area of Camden, from Chalk Farm to West Kentish Town.
Queens Crescent community activist, Joynal Uddin (pictured left), is making a stand for local people, saying “The residents of places like Denton, Southfleet, Malden Road and Maitland Park have had enough of the Tory/Lib Dem Council’s neglect. The Tories and Lib Dems are happy to churn out leaflets but it counts for nothing when they refuse to deal with the problems of antisocial behaviour I see every day on the streets. Many of our local problems can be traced back to poor and overcrowded housing conditions – problems only made worse by the Council’s policy of selling off homes to private developers despite the 18,000 housing waiting list.”
Joynal has pledged, if elected by local people, to join Camden Labour colleagues in opposing any further housing sell offs and to support tough action against crime in Haverstock ward.
