Support the Local Community
There are a vast number of issues that the residents of Waddington West face on a daily basis. For some, the number and size of the potholes on the roads is a problem. For others, it’s the lack of dog poo bins.
Waddington West is a diverse community with many different needs. For those around Redwood Primary School parking is a major issue, and that’s something that I will be exploring with residents during my campaign – both from the perspective of those who live around the school and are impacted by traffic and parking, and from the perspective of the parents (and I’m one of them) who drop their kids off at school and pick them up again.
Another issue for a small minority of residents that has a big impact is flooding. During periods of exceptionally heavy rainfall there tends to be a lot of surface water running down the Lincoln Cliff on the edge of the ward, and it poses a major risk to homes on such streets as Hollywell Road, Station Road, and Darwin Close. This is a longstanding problem that is currently being dealt with by North Kesteven District Council, but many residents feel not enough is being done to address the issue.
If elected I will redouble the council’s efforts to fix the flooding problem so that it no longer blights those who live in areas at risk from surface water flooding. I will work with authorities to see more dog poo bins allocated to the ward. I will consult with residents who live around and parents of children who go to Redwood Primary School to address the issue of parking around the school.
I will work tirelessly to support the local community in Waddington West on whatever issues arise. I want to win this election to represent the many, not the few.
