That would be an estimated £660,000 cut for Sutton’s pharmacies or the closure of 11 pharmacies in our borough — or 1 in 4 of them!

Carshalton Road: traffic light upgrade works planned from 19 September 2016
I am writing to let you know that we are planning to carry out traffic light upgrade works on Carshalton Road, at the pedestrian crossing by Alfred Road, from 19 September. The new lights have been designed to current standards and employ new technology to use less energy.
Temporary traffic lights from 19 September
The works are planned from 08:00 to 17:30 on Mondays to Fridays between 19 September and early October. Carshalton Road will be open as normal while the upgrade is completed although temporary traffic lights will be in place.
For live road travel updates, please visit tfl.gov.uk/trafficnews or follow @TfLTrafficNews on Twitter.
Some barriers will be in place around the works area for safety reasons. Please follow the signage that will be in place and take extra care. Pedestrian crossings will remain open, wherever possible, although some temporary closures may apply. Any closures will be clearly signed, while pedestrian access to properties will not be affected.
The working hours outlined above have been agreed with the London Borough of Sutton. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience while these improvements are completed.

This work forms part of Transport for London’s Road Modernisation Plan, the largest investment in London’s roads for a generation. Visit tfl.gov.uk/roads for more information about the Plan. The attached letter will be distributed to local residents and stakeholders.

Recently at one of my advice sessions I met a distressed young woman who came to see me with her mother. They have numerous repairs outstanding on their rented property but the landlord is flat-out refusing to sort them out — at the same time the landlord is putting pressure on them to leave their home. She didn’t know where to go or what to do.
Not all landlords are bad but I am hearing stories like this way too often, Hamish — and that’s why I’ve launched a campaign to reform renting once and for all. Will you add your voice to mine and join my campaign?
Personal stories are the most powerful arguments on our side. That’s why if you’ve got a renting horror story, I want to hear it — please share it with me:
There is no silver bullet that will solve London’s housing problems, because the fundamental challenge is a lack of supply, which takes time to fix. But there are things that can be done to make renting cheaper, safer and more secure.
Every renting horror story we receive will make our case to reform renting stronger.
Thank you, Hamish, I really appreciate your support.
