Liberal Democrat Party
North Heywood Ward
It has been my honour and privilege to be your North ward councillor for the last 4 years.
On May 6 I am up for re-election as your local councillor.
On the same day, the general election will also be held. This means that when you go to vote you will be given two ballot papers: one for the local election and one for the general election.
It looks set to be a close battle in our ward, so every vote really does count.
I feel I have made a difference during my time as a councillor, and I have met and helped hundreds of local residents in the past four years.
I have campaigned against the past flood disasters. The Lib Dem Council have had every gully throughout the Borough cleaned, and I have sought to ensure that this has happened across Heywood. The streets are now being kept clean; nearly 100 alley-gates have been installed for the safety of residents against anti-social behaviour and to stop littering, which remains an ongoing battle.
On road safety, I have had the speed limits looked into on Rochdale Road East and Green Lane. I managed to secure funding for a puffin crossing at Queen’s park, as well as 30 mph warning signs on Queens Park Road and Rochdale Road East. I will continue to campaign for safer roads.
Another ongoing campaign is the graffiti that spoils our buildings, bridges and road signs. At all times I have my finger on the pulse so that graffiti can be dealt with as quickly as possible.
I would also like to thank the former cabinet member for the environment, Councillor Wera Hobhouse, who assisted me in securing the £350,000 funding for our cemetery extension, which was located in the same place, and finished on time.
