How would you prefer to contact us? Some options are below.

In person
We hold weekly surgeries, where any resident can come in to talk to us about issues that we may be able to help with. Our weekly surgery is at 10.30am, every Saturday, at the Gate Library, Woodgrange Road, 4-20 Woodgrange Rd, London E7 0QH

We have held an online surgery via Skype which was an experiment, and also very quiet! But we’re open to doing it again,  if you would like to contact us via Skype to discuss an issue or an idea that we could help you with, please do drop us a line and we can set up a time.

We have also held ‘pop-up’ surgeries on specific issues. The last one we did was in Maryland to discuss with residents ideas about community activities and small grants they could apply for. If you would like us to come to your venue or event to do a pop-up surgery please contact us to discuss.

Watch this space for more info, or contact us if you have ideas for more accessible surgeries you would like to chat through.

    Hi Rachel and Seyi – just wondered if you’d been able to find out any more about the car club places in the CPZ, which club is operating them etc. I live on Sidney and haven’t been across since the zone was introduced so it
    might be that the cars are already there. We are trying to decide whether to replace our car having managed without since February, and easy access to car club vehicles would probably tip our decision in the greener direction!

      Hello Vicky,
      Thanks for the reminder. I have just this morning asked an officer in parking if they can direct me to whoever is doing the negotiation with car clubs regarding the bays that have been designated. I will let you know (I’ll email you) as soon as I hear anything on timing.

        Hello again Vicky,
        Just sitting in a meeting and heard that we are ‘very close’ to signing a contract with a car club. Will keep you posted.
