Section 3: Community Involvement

I am a Director and Board Member of Kidderminster BID and also a Board Member of Worcestershire LEP.

In my role as a Worcestershire County Councillor, I am also a member of Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority.

I am heavily involved in the community that I represent, I am also regularly meeting residents, looking at issues, attending events and attending all 3 Parish Councils on a regular basis, in conjunction with my two ward colleagues Cllrs Emily Bourne and Nick Wilson.

Section 4: Assisting Constituents

I have responded to every issue that has been raised to me by constituents throughout the year and have always provided updates as appropriate. This includes talking on the phone and also meeting face to face at locations around the ward.

I have contact from residents on a weekly basis and the main issues within the ward have been illegal parking and the request for more regular enforcement and also car parking charges.

I have regularly engaged with the local community and the local traders and supported and advised, where I can, to help mitigate the impact on the Bewdley during the flood defence works.

I also deliver a regular newsletter to all households within the ward together with my two colleagues. We deliver on average 3 per year. I also put regular posts on Facebook and share these into the community groups.

Section 5: Supplementary Information

I represent Bewdley and Rock ward which is a mixed ward with a mix of a historic Georgian Town and large rural areas. This covers Bewdley Town Council and the 2 Parish Councils of Arley and Rock.

I have also taken great pleasure in serving as Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration, Planning and The Green Agenda.
