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.
The deal in front of us is Brexit. It’s not all immediate but it was never going to be. It’s much more than ‘Brexit in Name Only’. There is a risk in accepting this deal. I believe this is a risk worth taking. It is certainly a lower risk than not supporting the deal and seeing a second referendum or worse still, no Brexit at all.
An update on the tramlink proposals for Sutton from TfL
I welcome the announcement that the Government has given £737,282 to Sutton council to ease social care pressures over winter.
Sutton United’s league, The National League has chosen leading men’s health charity Prostate Cancer UK as its first ever official charity partner, to unite in the fight against the UK’s most prevalent male cancer.
Following calls from Conservative councillors and myself, the Council have now sought a Borough-wide injunction against traveller incursions.
I am incredibly frustrated that travellers have turned up yet again in Sutton in such a short space of time. We do not yet know if this is the same people that were on Fairlands Park.
I have been very concerned to hear about the various reports of traveller incursions across Sutton over the past few weeks. They have been to many locations, leaving behind rubbish and waste, as well as reports of violent behaviour and criminal activity.
This is not a perfect deal by any stretch of the imagination but this is Brexit. We are leaving. The Prime Minister has done a remarkable job in the most difficult circumstances. There is enough in this proposal for me to back her and I look forward to the White Paper on Thursday. My long post tries to cut through some of the complexities.
As part of my work on the International Development Select Committee, I was delighted to attend the launch of the Coalition for Global Prosperity.
I attended a Carers Week speed networking event with carers and charities in Westminster, pledging my support to unpaid carers locally.
I was delighted to attend the parliamentary launch of the ‘red bag’ scheme., which was inspired by a project here in Sutton.
I was pleased to meet with officers from Sutton Council and Transport for London (TfL) on Gander Green Lane to look at the ongoing problem of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs).
