LISTER ON PUTNEY
Edward Lister is the Leader of Wandsworth Council and a member for Putney's Thamesfield ward.
streets of Putney were unusually quiet last Saturday morning as our
the squad's success rubs off on our local club Rosslyn Park -
concrete expanse of South Thames College that dominates Putney
Local residents will, I know, be looking to the council's planning committee to ensure that any replacement buildings are a much better fit with the character of the area and are of the right scale and size.
early morning lull many of the borough's main roads ground to a halt on
Sunday morning following the scare at the Battersea gas holder. With trains,
buses, case and even flights affected it was a chilling reminder of how
our ability to move around freely can be so
The warning siren was clearly heard throughout Putney and not surprisingly in these times caused a fair degree of anxiety amongst residents. The reported leak was a false alarm - triggered by the weekend's incessant rain getting into the alarm mechanism - but it was a genuine test for the council's emergency services team who had to be ready to evacuate hundreds of local residents.
the current terrorist alerts councils are having to pay more and more
attention to their emergency planning. Our experience goes right back
to the Manor Fields gas blast of almost 20 years ago but Sunday's scare
will have taught us new lessons about our preparedness
