10 good reasons to vote...for me
My final leaflet has gone to the printers today and will be distributed next week in the run up to polling day.
Here is a sneak preview! Click on the image to enlarge.
YOUTH. Richard believes that our communities and the police must work together confidently to prevent and solve the problems of anti social behaviour. Preventing dereliction and providing better youth and community facilities is crucial to that process. Richard thinks that we can achieve here in Buckden (left) what Catworth (right) has achieved. He has presented an outline plan to the VHT and has offered to do the work.
ROADS. Richard understands that the A1 has a strong dominance on many of our lives. Highways is mainly a County Council matter but he especially wants to help our County Councillor and the residents of Diddington and Southoe achieve the necessary alterations to their A1 junctions so that they are safe both for them and for all users of this essential road. He is also already helping to reduce the problems of speeding along the length of Mill Road.
PLANNING. Richard knows how strongly how people feel about planning matters, such as protecting the village envelope and providing affordable housing. Richard believes that if development is wanted and needed, it must be properly designed, communicated and consulted, must offer real benefits to the village and must be fully planned to ensure that supporting infrastructure and local services are accounted for.
