Petition Rejected

This petition has been rejected because:

  • It contained the names of individual officials of public bodies, not part of the senior management of those organisations

Additional information about this rejection:
Thank you for submitting the petition. I am afraid however that Councillor Sue Sampson is no longer the Cabinet Member for Leisure. She has been succeeded by Councillor Samia Chaudhary. I am also concerned about naming specific individuals in a council petition. As such, and for these reasons, I will not be able to accept the petition as currently worded. However, if you were to resubmit your petition with the following slightly revised wording, I will be glad to accept it: "Despite having two meetings with Hounslow Council and Fusion Leisure staff in the past two years, there have been no improvements in the standard of repairs, hygiene and general maintenance. As Hounslow Council are accountable and Fusion Leisure are responsible for the leisure centres in the Borough, we’d like the Cabinet Member for Leisure and the management of Fusion Lifestyle to authorise the necessary repairs, improvements in hygiene and general maintenance. Some of the continuing issues are the roof leaking at Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre, unusable lockers, security issues, staff shortages resulting in cancelled swimming lessons, broken or filthy gym equipment, no lights in the showers and inconsistent pool or air temperatures. Despite the list of problems, our membership fee continues to increase annually!" As you will see, I have retained everything in your petition except the specific names of members and officers. As I have already said, if you resubmit the petition in this form, I shall ensure that it is accepted.
