Welcome to the website of Stephen Hammond

Stephen Hammond MPHello, I am the MP for Wimbledon. Since being elected in May 2005 I have been working hard to represent the interests of my constituents in Parliament. I hope this website will give you a good idea of what I have been up to, both in Wimbledon and in Westminster.

Amongst other things you will find information about local campaigns, some interesting facts about the constituency, and a ‘Have Your Say’ page where you can post your comments or ideas. Also listed are my contact details and links to other websites which you may find useful.

I hold surgeries every fortnight in the constituency. These are a chance for my constituents to come and see me and I will do all I can to help them. Appointments are by prior arrangement only so please call my parliamentary office on 0207 219 1029 to enquire about availability and to book an appointment.

If your problem is very urgent you should telephone my Westminster office on 020 7219 1029. However, issues such as immigration and housing can be more quickly dealt with via the contact form on this website or via letter.

I look forward to meeting or hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Updates from Stephen Hammond MP

Member of Parliament for Wimbledon

Councillor Oonagh Moulton, Leader of Merton Conservatives and one of the Conservative poppy sellers said:

“It was a great honour to be part of London Poppy Day. The Royal British Legion does incredible work helping former members of our Armed Forces and their families, and my colleagues and I were pleased to be able to help in some small way with this year’s fundraising activities.

“Thank you to all the commuters at Wimbledon station who kindly stopped to buy a poppy.  With this being the 100th anniversary year since the start of World War One, the 2014 Remembrance events take on an even greater poignancy. As a community, it is crucial that we solemnly remember the many men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedom.”

Last year, I was delighted to be asked to speak at the Future of Wimbledon event and honoured to follow Sir Richard Rogers.  He brought up the need for definable areas of the Town Centre and possibly creating tree lined boulevards. I spoke about the need to rejuvenate the Town Centre, to have vibrant local High Streets , the requirement for an office quarter and about how Wimbledon could become a Tech Suburb. I had hoped this would become part of a real and lively engagement with local people.

The Council competition on the Future of Wimbledon, which has recently closed, has failed to engage local people.  Residents have told me that they were not aware of it or thought it was merely for professionals. I am thoroughly disappointed by this and really want to see local people motivated and properly consulted, as the future of our town is our future.

My current “Reporting Back” newsletter to local residents features some ideas and thoughts about my Vision for Wimbledon. However, any vision must listen to local residents and so I want this to be The People’s Plan for Wimbledon. I wholeheartedly encourage local residents to respond to my newsletter as I want to hear your views and ideas about how we can ensure Wimbledon remains a thriving and wonderful place.

That is why I am holding a public meeting on Saturday 4th October (3pm, Trinity Church Hall, The Broadway, SW19 1SB) to hear from residents to help us, together, develop a Vision for Wimbledon. This will be the chance for local people to be involved and not excluded.
