In 2010, one of our first major campaign victories was the traffic measures we introduced on Tanfield Avenue. Residents were victim to buses and large vehicles hitting their cars.
Liberal Democrat Councillors knew about this and took zero action. They only come around at election time in Dudden Hill.
We called on TfL and Brent Council to look at the option of allowing cars to park on the road and part on the pavement before we were actually elected.
We were successful in our argument and won funding to pay for pavements with lower kerbs to allow this to happen.
You always remember your first major campaign victory and this was still remembered by residents living on the road when we visit them.
