Being a Parish Councillor of 18+ years and previously served as County Councillor for this area, I’m aware of the problems of day to day living. I’ve lived in the ward for the last 20+ years, having owned Monkton Heathfield Stores.
With the merger of the two councils, it’s a golden opportunity to work together for you the electorate. My aim is to tackle traffic congestion and fully support the Garden Town theme. Also making sure there are both affordable and social housing for the local people to enjoy.
A promise I’ll make, is that I’ll hold developers to account and not let them rule the council as has previously happened.
I believe a councillor is there for all the electorate whatever your views. Times are changing so now is the time to change your councillor.
