I will work with developers to build more homes in Reading that residents can actually afford. And I’ll make sure they’re built on derelict, abandoned land. That way, we protect our green spaces and help people get on the housing ladder.
I am campaigning for 1,000 extra police officers to be recruited for Thames Valley Police, with greater coverage in areas outside the town centre, and to reduce paperwork so they spend more time on the streets tackling crime.
I will reunite Reading East by addressing concerns on both sides of the Brexit debate - and campaign for Reading to become a Special Economic Zone for tech and IT, creating new opportunities for local businesses and more jobs from a reinvigorated Global Britain.
I will work with Reading and Wokingham Borough Councils to repair potholes to make journeys safer, cut parking charges in Reading to reinvigorate the town centre, get the Third Thames Bridge built to cut congestion - and will oppose Labour's congestion charge.
The Labour-run Reading Borough Council has closed Arthur Hill and Central Pool. I’m working with residents on a petition to save Arthur Hill - I learned to swim there as a child and want to see it reopened for the community.
