Cllr Greg Stafford moving to his home ward of Hanger Hill and the retirement of Cllrs John Popham and Isobel Grant brings three new but familiar faces to Cleveland: Ian Proud, John Salisbury and Vanessa Williams who are keen to do an equally excellent job on the Council.
With the regeneration of Copely Close starting, the trios are pleased that Labour has continued with the regeneration of estate programme started by the previous Conservative Administration.
Having young adult children, they all support the Conservative commitment to ensure that there are adequate numbers of affordable homes for key workers and young people built in the borough. However, they do not want this to be done at the expense of green belt land. They therefore welcome the Conservative commitment to protects the green belt and reverses Labour’s plans to build on it.
The never increasing parking charges by Labour over the past four years have hit both residents and traders. The Conservative pledge to therefore freeze parking charges for the next 4 years will provide a welcome relief.
Getting Labour’s disastrous waste and recycling contract fixed will be a top priority as too many residents have horror stories of their waste and recycling continually not being collected. Besides being unhygienic, it also gives an appearance of decline/ neglect to area.
The decision to downgrade the cleaning of the parks whilst paying the contractor the same money is shocking and shows contempt for residents. Many of our parks will be neglected unless the Conservatives sort the contract out.
Fixing potholes whilst neglecting the wholesale renewal of roads is simply throwing money done the drain as too many of roads are in dire need of full repair. Labour’s under investment in this area over the past four years is very notable.
Ian, John & Vanessa look forward to being a part of a Conservative Administration which will deliver the following for Ealing:
The ward has elected Conservative councillors for some time and any change would be a major surprise.
