Your Labour Candidate - Haywards Heath, Bentswood


Parish Council Candidate

I am Professor of Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine who has lived in the Haywards Heath area for 20 years. I’ve campaigned locally for appropriate housing development, better public transport and hospital provision, nationally on Europe and internationally on poverty and inequality. I believe that the big problems of today such as lack of financial oversight, fair working conditions and climate change need to be tackled across national borders. I’m passionate and energetic and plan to consult widely with the people of Bentswood to find ways to improve the deal that they currently get from their local council.

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:


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
