|Vote Conservative for Arun District|
on the 7th of May
I am standing again for re-election as Councillor for the Arundel & Walberton ward on the 7th of May with colleagues Norman Dingemans and Robert Wheal,
I ask that you give us your support and elect myself and my colleagues for four more years as your local representatives.
I have lived and worked in the ward for over 19 years, I am and have always been a Green Conservative and support sustainable transport, cycling, renewable energy and green tourism, I also support the provision of a By-Pass as I see this as a way to improving the local environment for local residents.
I always fight Arundel's corner at Arun and because I am a Cabinet Member I am in a good position to influence policy. I have worked hard over the last four years and have a number of personal achievements
- Campaigning for Government money for flood defenses (£280k committed from the Environment Agency)
- Campaigning for Government money for an Arundel By-Pass using the pink blue route
- Campaigning for traffic calming within the ward with 20 mph speed limits for Burpham with 20Mph zones coming to Arundel & Warningcamp in 2015.
- Green renewable energy on the Civic Centre generating 50kw's and giving Arun a 5 year payback on it's investment
- Money towards the Arundel Museum.
- Campaigning for cycle racks & cycle paths (Racks achieved, Station cycle path being delivered at the moment)
- Working to keep the Learning Tree children's nursery open
- Working to keep unwanted housing development from Arundel, whilst working to build houses where they are wanted (In the Arundel Neighborhood plan)
Arun Conservatives have a good record of achievement -
- £5m savings achieved with no cuts to services, (Reducing staffing numbers by 20% reducing council office buildings from 8 to 5)
- The Council Tax Frozen for 5 years
- Weekly bin collection of the highest quality at the lowest cost compared to other councils
- Local Housing for local People you have to live in Arun for 5 years to be eligible for Social Housing (Council Housing)
- Building 1042 affordable homes (beating a target of 1000 over 4 years)
- Supporting Community Safety and Policing through close working with Sussex Police
- Boosting recycling
- Expanding Council Leisure & Sport services, with a promise of a new Swimming & Sports Centre at littlehampton
If you live in a Band D property only £3 a week of your council tax goes to Arun for good local services at a comparable low cost.
Our future pledges to you the voter are
- To continue to ensure value for money by cutting costs whilst maintaining and improving services.
- To preserve the countryside and our environment, encourage green measures, ensuring that inappropriate planning applications are opposed and encouraging the social, economic and environmental well being of the area.
- To work closely with your Local Parish or Town Councils to meet your needs.
- To improve the quality of life for all by tackling anti-social behaviour in all its forms.
- To ensure continuation of tough financial controls at Arun and continue to eliminate waste.
