Statement to voters

Dorothy Ford has been a resident of the Oxshott and Stoke d’Abernon ward for 35 years. While raising a family here, she taught French and German before working on policy for the central government in White-hall. She helped set up the Cobham Library Community Hub and taught a young mother reading skills. Dorothy enjoys singing in choirs, walking, growing vegetables and playing with two tiny grandchildren.

As a borough councillor, Dorothy’s key aims will be to

– enhance our environment by improving litter collection and by extending Elmbridge Borough Council’s air quality monitoring system to our ward, where Oxshott High Street’s heavy traffic poses potential problems
– protect and enhance our local Green Belt, including along Blundel Lane
– urge the Council to invest in affordable housing instead of commercial properties, especially if new housing plans are proposed for our ward
– help ensure the availability of quality local schools, healthcare and social services

1. Because national government support to local authorities has fallen 77% since 2010, this ward is suffering from poor services – from pothole repairs to school budgets. Our Green Belt remains threatened by inappropriate housing plans. Our Tory MP ignores our views by supporting a “Hard” Brexit – making us poorer.

2. I aim to safeguard our environment by measuring air quality, improving litter management, protecting Green Belt by prioritising brownfield sites and town centre development. I will strive to enhance local education, health and care services.
I will promote strong, fair finances for example by reducing council’s commercial investments and instead promoting council investment in affordable housing.
