Time for a Fair Deal for Dulwich

Over the last four years Southwark’s Labour Council has centralised powers and decision making at their London Bridge Town Hall – leaving Dulwich out on a limb. Dulwich is not just leafy lanes, and many local residents feel they don’t get a fair deal from Southwark’s Labour Council who are more interested in Bermondsey and Peckham. Since 2010 Labour have closed local day care centres and plan to relocate the service to Peckham, stripped Dulwich councillors of local decision making powers, and hoarded huge cash reserves at the Town Hall.  Labour opposes the establishment of new primary schools out of political dogma when the South of the Borough is crying out for new school places.
