Your Labour Candidate - Haywards Heath Franklands
District Council Candidate
I have lived in Haywards Heath for 13 years, having moved here from Burgess Hill. I was inspired to become involved in local politics after hearing the socialist policies outlined by Jeremy Corbyn, including in particular the nationalisation of our railways. As a commuter to London, like many of us, I have suffered the appalling services of Southern and Thameslink, with journeys to and from work becoming increasingly stressful and financially draining'
It is easy to see the hold that the Tories have in the local area and become despondent but I think it’s incredibly important that they are brought to account and that everyone has the opportunity to vote for the Party they believe in. My wife and I are both strong Labour Party supporters and believe Labour are able to provide a better future for this generation, and those that will come after it. If elected, I will work to ensure Councillors make decisions that help and benefit the local community, particularly those in need of help, including the young and the vulnerable, whose voices are as important as everyone else’s.
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
