I was delighted to have been selected ther Conservative Party candidate for the Hailsham South Ward By-election and even more delighted to have been elected back onto our town council.
You may or may not remember me from my four-year term as Hailsham town councillor from 2011 to 2015.
I’d am delighted to have been given the opportunity to serve residents again and will strive to represent the interests of South Ward residents to the best of my ability, and to assist with any local issues or concerns you may have.
I’ve been a resident of Hailsham for the past 45 years and, in my previous term in office at the Town Council, I served as Oversight Councillor for people with disabilities, as I myself am registered blind.
Once again, I’d like to ensure that local people with disabilities are represented equally in the community, and that accessibility is available to all where possible.
I’d am privileged to have been given the opportunity to serve Hailsham residents once more. Do contact me if I can help with any issues which affect us in South Ward and wider Hailsham.
A VIBRANT TOWN
The heart of our great market town is its high street and our wonderful local businesses.
Hailsham Town Council Conservatives put together, and helped to create, a successful rescue plan for the Post Office.
Wealden Conservatives will invest in the town centre while preserving its essential character and attraction to locals and visitors alike. As councillors, we will continue to work with the Chamber of Commerce, local businesses, clubs and societies, and the Hailsham Community Group forum to enhance the quality of community life.
EXPANDED MEDICAL SERVICES FOR HAILSHAM
We value our local NHS. Hailsham’s size justifies expanded medical facilities. Wealden Conservatives are embedding expansion of medical services in the town into the Local Plan.
We will prioritise this in our own investment plans for Hailsham at District-level, working with NHS partners, with whom we are already in discussion, to deliver it. This will include expanded GP surgery capacity, specialist services, and a Minor Injuries Unit.
Hailsham Conservatives believe that new housing must be built in a sustainable manner. It must be appropriate to, and prioritise local needs, and be accompanied by new infrastructure to support it, with greater access to open spaces. We will promote the Neighbourhood plan as approved by Hailsham residents in May.
Conservatives are investing £42.8 million in the town’s education facilities.
Our councillors are bringing forward the delivery of key junction improvements on the A22; South Rd/ Ersham Rd and Diplocks Way.
We’ll work with County and District colleagues to hold Southern Water and poor housing developers to account.
