West Hampstead

West Hampstead ward makes up the southern part of West Hampstead: between Mill Lane and Fortune Green Road to the north, South Hampstead gardens to the south, and stretching from Finchley Road to Kilburn High Road.

The ward is centred on West End Lane, and has a dynamic mix of business and residential areas.  Designated by the Mayor of London as a 'growth area', development puts considerable strain on the area and needs careful monitoring.  The West Hampstead NDF, West Hampstead Amenities & Transport, and MILAM are among the many large residents' groups.

The ward does not have any Conservative councillors, but the Conservatives are the second largest party locally and hold regular street stalls with Conservative councillors representing other wards once a month:

  • 4th Saturday each month: outside Caffè Nero, West End Lane, from 10:30am to 12:30pm

I live on West End Lane, and I’ve been proud to call West Hampstead my home since first moving to London.   I want to make a real difference for our community.

I’ve been shocked by the rise in moped crimes and burglaries, with Camden seeing the biggest increase in crime in London in the last year.  My top priority is to push for more police officers on our streets to keep West Hampstead safe.

As well as less safe, our streets have become less clean: with West End Lane now filthy.  I will push for the restoration of weekly bin collections and tougher action on fly-tipping.

I use West Hampstead tube station every day, and I know how vital it is to improve and expand it — including installing a lift to help older passengers and people with disabilities, small children, or luggage.

I’ve lived in West Hampstead for 17 years: on Finchley Road, Broomsleigh Street, and now Iverson Road.

I’m the secretary of the West Hampstead Neighbourhood Development Forum: fighting against over-development.  Camden plans to pack 2,000 extra people into West Hampstead in the coming years: putting additional strain on services.

I’m working with the local residents’ association to address parking and traffic on Maygrove and Iverson Roads.

I’ve also campaigned to restore weekly bin collections for all residents and tougher action on fly-tipping, having seen the impact Labour’s cuts have had on cleanliness of our streets.

I’ve lived in Camden for almost 40 years, and I now run a local business in West Hampstead.  My family, extended family, and friends also live in West Hampstead.

I want to represent West Hampstead to improve our community for my children.  That means three issues are most important:

  • Improving schools and providing more outstanding school places, so that every child benefits from a great education
  • Putting more police on the beat to ensure our families are safe
  • Backing local businesses, so our area continues to create jobs

I am also actively involved with Camden’s Bengali Workers’ Association, and I will work to support the diversity of our local community.
