Your Labour Candidates - Haywards Heath Ashenground
District and Town Council Candidate
I am standing for the Town Council because I believe that the future of our town should be one which provides the opportunity for a good life for people of all ages. I involved myself in local politics because I have had a growing feeling that we must make life better for people and I have always believed in fairness and equality.
I grew up in this community and have lived most of my life in Haywards Heath. I am a proud Unite member and joined the Labour Party because I believe they are the only Party that will truly deliver for me, my family and my community. I will represent you and your views to the best of my ability and will always work for policies that will make the lives of you and your families better and this community a better place to be.
Town Council Candidate
I see the need to provide a better quality of life to the people of our community, which must be done by the Town Council. The community needs a voice at the table where these important decisions are made. I qualified with an electrical engineering degree and now run my own software engineering company. I have lived in Ashenground for 8 years and volunteer for the local Foodbank.
Since being a member of the Labour Party, I have been pleased to see a great increase in democracy and grassroots activism, which I believe will translate into a healthier society focussed on the needs of the many. Elect me to be your voice, to raise the issues we know affect us and ensure they are dealt with in your best interests.
Vote Thursday 2nd May - don’t forget your poll card!
Time for change
The District and Town Councils are dominated by Conservatives. Electing Labour councillors will be a positive change for Haywards Heath. Only Labour has a vision that will make Mid Sussex a better place to live and work. Your Labour Councillors will:
- Insist on a sixth form college with high quality provision that meets the needs of the local community
- Ensure local representation on the sixth form college board of governors
- Fight for weekly refuse and cheaper green bin collections
- Oppose rent increases in the town to support local business
- Encourage a diverse and vibrant high street
- Require an enforceable minimum quota of 40% affordable housing in all developments
- Demand that money for roads, schools, GPs, community buildings, parks, sports facilities and open spaces is required from housing developers
- Listen to the views of train users and raise concerns with the appropriate authorities
- Raise concerns about hospital parking charges, to support hospital workers and users and reduce on-street parking in the local area
A VOTE FOR LABOUR IS A VOTE TO:
Stand up to speculative developers
Demand high building standards that include renewable energy
Create more affordable housing
Be more transparent about how council decisions are made
Bring back truly representative local planning committees
Put the environment and green space above profit
Balance the needs of business with the interests of the community
