Your Labour Candidates - Lindfield Ward
District Council Candidate
I have lived in Mid Sussex all my life, making Lindfield my home 4 years ago, with my 3 sons. I studied Nursing at university and naturally feel very passionate about our NHS. I love to walk miles in our beautiful local countryside with my dog, when I’m not marching on a protest in London!
We need to hold the current council to account for the lack of sixth form facilities for our children, plus the lack of affordable housing for the next generation in Mid Sussex.
I would relish the opportunity to challenge the Tory majority in the council in the running of all our local facilities. Our services are under greater pressure than ever with the scale of new homes being built in our area.
I believe in equality, social justice and compassion for everyone.
District Council Candidate
I grew up in Mid Sussex and have lived with my family in Lindfield for over 30 years. This means that I am fully aware of the many difficulties facing us in this area, particularly as a result of housing development and the impact of this on local services including schools, health and the environment. I worked in the public sector for many years and can appreciate the complex nature of the delivery of services. I have recently retired and am standing for the District Council because I would like to serve the community. I believe in social justice and the values held by the labour party and would like to use my skills, knowledge and experience to represent the interests of all local residents.
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
