The Story of 39 Lib Dem leaflets
It’s really nice of the Conservative candidate Sakina Bradbury to dedicate a whole leaflet to me. The Story of 39 Lib Dem leaflets! It’s sweet of her to point out all the hard work we do, the thousands of doors we knock on all year round and the loads of leaflets. Gosh is it really 39!
There are though a few factual errors she may wish to correct.
This is linked to the infrastructure issue which is often raised. There are too many parking pinch points in Whyteleafe. When it was decided to develop the land used for permit parking in Godstone Road, Cllr David Lee was quick to ensure that additional space would be found for permit holders, so as not to make the on-road parking situation any worse. Good work!
Refuse and Recycling
Local Lib Dems support modern, user-friendly, environmentally-aware refuse and recycling facilities. We stand ready to support any good new proposal for our area. In the meantime, centres like the one in Bond Road Warlingham provide you with a vital and highly valued service. We got that message loud and clear from the survey responses. Until any better solution is rolled out, we will vigorously oppose any further cuts to the opening hours at Bond Road and elsewhere.
Planning & Development
We know that we need high quality, diverse development to meet housing and business needs. We strongly believe this should happen within a robust plan for the whole district. Too often in the past, development has been crammed into small areas north of the M25, eating up green spaces that allow places like Whyteleafe to breathe. Plans are now being formulated in other parts of the district that offer a more balanced approach. We will keep an eye on all the details, but we broadly support these plans.
