Responding to a question from Belvedere Councillor John Fuller about the successful £1.3 million bid to TFL to regenerate Belvedere Village Bexley Council’s Cabinet member for Transport Cllr Peter Craske expressed his disappointment that entirely false rumours about plans to remove all the parking from the Village had been circulated to the local press.
“I was disappointed to read in the press that Labour were accusing me of refusing to meet traders to discuss their concerns, as I had just come from a meeting with the traders on the issue” he said.
It also emerged that Labour MP John Austin who had issued a press release two weeks ago saying he was trying to set up a meeting between the Council and the Traders, had not yet contacted Cllr Craske though those meetings had taken place. Cllr Craske told Councillors,
“Labour attempts to deceive Belvedere residents and traders about a scheme that will deliver real improvements for the area are completely irresponsible. I have decided to put the plans on display in Belvedere Library so that people can see for themselves exactly what we is being done.”
