Are local petty politics and old school party whips working for you?
Are you impressed by the way WLBC is being run and are you happy that an additional 550 new houses are being planned in our Parish as part of the Local Plan review to which the draft publication has been delayed till “after” the local elections?
Halsall is so blessed in having exceptional grade A1 soil, the finest food producing asset in the county, however our Borough Council is hell bent in surrendering this vital resource to developers for housing rather than food production.
Poor and short sighted planning decisions creates problems in the future, we need the right type of housing in the right areas at a price where our young couples can actually afford!
Have you noticed any local road improvements, a reduction of flooding or an aboundance of school placements? We need someone who will hold our County Councillor and Lancashire County Council to account especially when our every increasing council tax bills is basically showing a “nil return” for us handing over our hard earned cash.
It’s time that our great borough received improvement to services and some much needed investment upgrades!
The quality of Broadband services is way below par compared to other areas, this is unacceptable and we demand better from our providers!
It’s time we put pressure to have a higher Police presence in Halsall to tackle the rising rate of rural crime, excessive speeding and the abuse of HGV’s ignoring long established road weight limits which is ruining our back roads.
I’m not a politician nor constrained by party politics so if elected, I can speak up for the residents and be able to vote with complete impartially in meetings on items that will improve and regenerate West Lancashire.

Thank you for your interest and I hope that you seriously consider placing your vote and trust in me on the 6th May to promote and improve Halsall for the next four years.
