Cllr 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 Ariel 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.

Nancy was elected to serve the residents of Fortune Green in July 2021, after long standing Liberal Democrat Councillor Flick Rea stood down. 

Nancy wants the Labour Council to listen to local residents on issues from rubbish to planning. She will be a fighter for all of Fortune Green.
