Our Commitments

The Temple and Farringdon Together team of Councillors stood for election on a promise to work hard and, in particular, that we would seek to:

  • maintain the unique nature of the Ward, especially the Temple and Smithfield Market, and protect access to those areas;
  • promote London as the global hub for the common law and as a major centre for litigation and mediation;
  • ensure that those who live in our area can live peaceably and have access to the public services they need;
  • upgrade the City’s broadband and mobile Wi-Fi infrastructure;
  • reduce congestion and improve public transport into and through the City;
  • support the City’s ongoing contribution to culture, education, housing, and charities in London and beyond;
  • ensure that air in the City is safe to breathe and the streets are kept clean;
  • keep the City of London safe and secure, by maintaining our own police force;
  • continue the push for upgraded urgent care facilities at Bart’s, initially seeking an extension to the opening hours of the Minor Injuries Unit to 7 am to 7 pm, 7 days a week;
  • ensure that the move of the Museum of London to Smithfield is achieved successfully, and with minimal disruption to residents and local businesses;
  • advocate the best deal for the people living and working in our area in the forthcoming Brexit negotiations, including continued access to the single market and movement of skilled workers.
