Better transport, safer communities and a greener environment

I am campaigning for:

- a more responsive, better funded police service with a presence across our borough.

- an improved road network including a long-term solution to Gallows Corner, less congestion at the Dartford Crossing, better road surfacing.

- a transport system that is more accessible to disabled and elderly residents, including a campaign for more lifts at our stations.

- regenerated housing estates with new homes of all tenures so that local families can stay close to one another.

- investment in local green spaces as compensation for the Lower Thames Crossing.
