Section 3: Community Involvement

I have chaired two PACT meetings in October 2023 and March 2024 with local residents, Police and other partners to discuss issues in the ward and to hear residents' concerns and to take questions.

Section 4: Assisting Constituents

Over the last 12 months I have championed many Highway improvements across the ward. I have had new pavements installed on Blount Terrace and a new road resurfaced in Larches Avenue. I've also had double yellow lines installed on the corner of Spring Grove Road and Spring Grove Crescent.

I've tried to address the issue of speeding traffic on Hoo Road, Wilden Lane and Sutton Park Rd by getting two additional Speed Activated Signs purchased for these roads.

I have also had the long-term flooding issue on the pedestrian crossing on Stourport Rd rectified by getting Highways to install dedicated drainage gullies.

I'm on 5 different residents' Facebook groups, on which I regularly post stories that highlight the issues I'm progressing, and residents regularly contact me through these groups. I also have my councillor page on Facebook that again I communicate directly to residents with.

I have also put out 4 newsletters this year, highlighted all the issues I am looking into together with my achievements and clearly states my contact details.
