"I believe it is very important for your councillors to work to maintain this balance - ensuring that the development of housing and other amenities is appropriate to Warlingham and its surrounding area. If elected, I will actively oppose development that fails to respect this. I am strongly supportive of the appropriate provision of affordable housing in Warlingham and welcome the new council housing in Meadway and that being built in Eden Way."
