New Malden residents were left shocked after a the resident ‘Engagement Manager’ at Kingston Council dismissed their fears regarding the Cocks Crescent SPD as ‘inaccuracies’ and ‘incorrect’.
In an e-mail sent to all Kingston Councillors, the ‘Engagement Manager’ (i.e. to engage with the community) branded the leaflet we sent out (link) regarding Cocks Crescent, the concerns of which were directly taken from resident correspondence with MICO, as ‘incorrect’ and spreading ‘inaccuracies’.
This is disgraceful treatment of Malden and Coombe residents by Kingston Council, and is further proof that your Council isn’t listening to you. Public servants are paid for by the public to serve the public, not to put their own needs, wants or wishes ahead of them.
Here’s the e-mail in full (bar redactions to protect personal information):
