Standing in Dereham-Neatherd ward:

YES to protecting public services
YES to helping local businesses grow
YES to good, accessible green spaces
YES to a green waste management policy
YES to an integrated traffic policy for Dereham
YES to an open Council with local participation

About me:

I have lived in Dereham for 30 years and have been a Town and Breckland District Councillor for the last 4 years. I worked in agriculture supplying a number of food factories. This has given me a good understanding of local economic life. I have 3 grown-up children, all went to Dereham schools.

“I have and will work tirelessly
to promote local issues and make
positive, greener changes.”

Why I want to continue being your councillor:

Reducing the impact of climate change is part of local and national policy and I will continue to raise these issues in local planning policy, and housing developments.

New housing is needed to make rents and house prices more affordable but investment in the necessary infrastructure is needed to ensure education, health and transport services are all in place before extra pressure is placed on these already stretched resources. I will continue to make raise these issues as the Local Plan is refreshed.

Since my election we have considerably increased our green spaces in Dereham. They need protecting!

In Breckland, with a large majority of one political party, it is essential to have a considered and thoughtful alternative voice to offer diverse solutions and make robust decisions.

Breckland works better
with Green councillors

In the District Council election you may choose up to 3 people to represent you, please use one of your votes for me.
