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 moved to Sutton back in 1987, 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.
I am delighted to write and tell you that local NHS leaders have confirmed plans for a new hospital to be built in Sutton and to upgrade facilities at St Helier. This represents a £500 MILLION plan that will not only build a brand new state of the art hospital near to...
I am only too aware of the sacrifices people have made over the last few weeks. My mother died just before lockdown and one of my sisters had to think long and hard about whether she would be safe coming to say her goodbyes, being in her seventies with an underlying...
Yesterday John Cleese tweeted from his home in the Caribbean that London was not really an English city any more....
As the Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Brunei I was concerned to read about the next level of the Sharia Penal Code that has been recently introduced in Brunei. I share the Foreign Secretary’s concerns wholeheartedly and know that we will all continue to speak out at every level of government.
It was clear from the moment the Government invoked article 50 that any agreement would likely come about late in the process. This has always been the way the EU has negotiated and whilst Parliament has pulled itself apart rather than coalescing around a single...
A considerable number of my constituents in Sutton have been in touch with me regarding the proposals for the borough-wide Controlled Parking Zone which Sutton Council are consulting on. The important date is 16th December when this closes so it is vital if you...
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.
