Sidcup Conservatives say B14 Bus service must improve
Many residents in Royal Park say that the B14 bus should be a lifeline but they are fed up with the poor service. The latest performance figures (Oct to Dec 2017) for the route show that nearly 30% of journeys run late and 7% of buses did not run at all. In recent years the B14 has been consistently the worst performing bus route in Bexley. The recent change of contractor for the B14 does not seem to have made any improvement. This is unacceptable we will make getting improvements to the B14 a priority. We will talk to Stagecoach, as the service provider, and Transport for London to see how you can get a better service.

Deputation to Retain Sidcup Library
The proposed move of Sidcup Library to the former Blockbuster site at 106 High Street was a contentious issue for many in our ward. June Slaughter therefore agreed to sponsor the Sidcup Library Campaign Group to bring a Deputation to the Council. This enabled their spokesman to address the Council with their concerns including loss of services, reduced space and meeting facilities, loss of disabled parking and possible disposal of a purpose built library building.
