John Hassall

John is well-known locally as the Chair of Cotford St Luke Parish Council.

Cotford St Luke & Oake Ward is part rural and part residential but the area lacks a bus service into Taunton for those who have no transport and have to work or want to visit friends or need to go to hospital on Sundays. John is looking into various schemes which will help reduce our demand for petrol and diesel which will improve the air we breathe. Planet positive is our watchword and to achieve this we need to have electric vehicles on the Park and Ride service and extend the route to include the Railway Station  

There is also a demand for more social and affordable housing in Somerset West & Taunton which must be met.
