Nancy Jirira


I moved to London and settled in a bedsit on Dennington Park Road in West Hampstead in 1974. Before moving to Fortune Green where I now live I lived briefly on Netherwood Street then on to Ariel Road. I lived on Aries Road when my daughter was born.

I have lived in West Hampstead and Fortune Green for all my adult life. I have experience and campaigned with others for the ThamesLink redevelopment. Like most people in the area, I had hoped for a more radical Station redevelopment to include all three stations and reduce the congestion we see every morning outside West Hampstead Underground station.

I was a founder member of the Fortune Green and West Hampstead Neighbourhood Development Forum which was formed to represent the views of residents in the decision-making process of local planning at Town Hall. I am extremely disappointed that local residents views on 136 West End Lane were ignored by Camden Planners. I shared the views of residents in Lymington Road whose skyline will be overshadowed by the proposed development.

I am part of St James Church and I was pleased that the local Post Office was relocated to this Community facility at the Sherriff Centre. I took part in lobbying for this to happen.

I am a nurse and have worked in the NHS for over 40 years.
