Camden Council’s new leader vows to improve Kilburn
Cllr Sarah Hayward was elected last week
The new leader of Camden Council has vowed to make Kilburn a ‘better place’.
Cllr Sarah Hayward was elected as the new leader of the borough’s Labour Group last week.
She said she was looking forward to working closely with councillors Mike Katz, Thomas Gardiner, and Maryam Eslamdoust who represent the Kilburn ward in Camden.
All three have been battling to save the Netherwood Centre in Nethwerood Street, Kilburn, from closure.

Cllr Hayward said: “Mike, Thomas and Maryam have done a great job as ward councillors, working with residents to save Netherwood Day Centre and keep a nursery going at Acol (a children’s centre in Kilburn).”

She continued: “Kilburn faces a number of challenges – from supporting traders on the High Road, to meeting the growing demand for childcare and primary school places.
“Government cuts and changes to welfare benefits will have a severe impact in Kilburn. I’m determined that Camden will do all it can to support those who are suffering the most from the actions of this government.
“I intend to be a Leader for all of the borough – including Kilburn.
“I look forward to working with them to make Kilburn a better place.”
Cllr Nash Ali resigned as the leader of the council after Cllr Hayward announced in March she would stand against him at the party’s Annual General Meeting which took place last month.
The father-of-three, who had lead the party for three years, snatched Camden Council back from the Liberal Democrats in 2010.
