My Plan for Sutton, Cheam & Worcester Park
1. Protect and enhance valued local health services
2. Secure more great school places for all children in Sutton
3. Make high street parking easier so local shops thrive
4. Improve transport links to give commuters a better quality of life
5. Take HGVs off residential roads surrounding Kimpton Park
6. A new GP surgery on the Sutton Hospital site
I have lived in Sutton for 28 years, building a small business and raising a family. Both my children were born in St Helier Hospital and educated in Sutton schools. I understand the local issues that concern you because I shop in the same shops and drive on the same roads.
A regular volunteer at St Helier Hospital, a school governor, a governor at SCOLA and a former Councillor in Sutton, I have a record of standing up for local people.
I remain determined to provide the people of Sutton with a strong voice in Westminster.
From 5 to 28 August platforms 1-10 at London Waterloo, the UK’s busiest station, will be closed so work can start to extend platforms for longer trains.
Following the tragedy at Grenfell Tower, I wrote to Sutton Council regarding fire safety in tall buildings in Sutton, Cheam and Worcester Park.
Every summer I receive complaints from residents about Helicopter noise and this summer has been no exception.
On Monday I met with Transport for London (TfL) along with the local Conservative London Assembly Member, Steve O’Connell, to discuss the A217/A232 crossroads.
I am pleased that the Epsom & St Helier NHS Trust are seeking opinions from Sutton residents about the future of healthcare in the borough, making it clear that St Helier hospital will stay open.
Last year, Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR), the parent company of Southern and Thameslink, launched a consultation which sets out proposed changes to the timetable which will be operated by GTR in 2018. The second phase of their consultation on the 2018 timetable has now started. GTR’s plans are designed to provide more reliable services, with more capacity for passengers.
The cladding on Chaucer House in Collingwood Road, Sutton, has failed a fire safety test according to Sutton Council, Sutton Housing Partnership and the London Fire Brigade.
I am delighted at the announcement of further money from the Government’s £100 million A&E fund being allocated to hospitals across the country including at St Helier Hospital.
Since the election last Thursday, some residents have contacted me about talks between the Conservatives and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).
Following the tragic news that started coming through last night of the fire in Grenfell Tower, Kensington, many residents have contacted me about the safety of tall buildings in Sutton, such as Chaucer House.
Given the concerns expressed over the last weekend about social care, it is important to explain the government’s plans properly. We will make sure there will be an absolute limit on what people will need to pay for their care by capping the amount they will have to pay, protect people from the huge costs that can accumulate, put more money into health and social care and make sure no one has to sell their home within their lifetime to pay for care.
Over the last 25 years we have had politicians queuing up to 'Save St Helier' but precious few coming forward with a realistic plan to do so. I believe that this needs to change which is why I invited Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health, to come to St Helier...
