Statement to voters

    Dear Resident, Since moving to the area in 2017, I have loved being a part of the vibrant communities of West Malling, East Malling and Larkfield.

    Full statement

    Now, after this most challenging of years, I am for the first time
    seeking your support in the Kent County Council elections.

    Since arriving, I have worked hard as Chair of West Malling Parish
    Council Planning Committee, fighting against inappropriate local
    development, speaking out against the plans for 40 Acre Field and
    leading the fundraising campaign against the Bellway proposals
    for Lavenders Road. Of course, we need housing, but it needs to
    be built in the right place and with the right infrastructure –
    doctors surgeries, schools and transport links.

    It has also been great to meet so many residents as lead
    coordinator of the West Malling Volunteers Scheme, supporting
    neighbours who have not been able to get out and about during
    the pandemic.

    But there is more that I want to do and if you elect me to Kent
    County Council, I pledge to:

    • Work to tackle antisocial behaviour and speeding,
    particularly within the bounds of our towns and villages

    • Seek practical support for our local businesses and
    High Streets which have suffered greatly and yet given
    so much during the pandemic

    • Work with relevant organisations to combat the scourge
    of fly tipping

    • Champion investment in critical infrastructure, levelling-up
    our communities so that we have the roads, schools, NHS
    and other services we need for the next decade.

    So when you vote on 6 May, I hope you will consider standing
    with me for our communities, our schools, our public services
    and our green spaces.

    All best wishes
