Do you know where the war memorials are in your area? Are they being well looked after or have you noticed that they are falling into disrepair? Have you tried to contact the relevant authority about maintenance?

I am conducting an investigation on behalf of the London Assembly’s planning and housing committee to identify all London’s war memorials and assess how well they are being maintained, and by whom. The committee want to see if there is potential for the planning system to offer them more protection from developers and neglect.

A war memorial is anything that physically commemorates anyone who has died in any conflict. Please send your experiences of this issue to
