POST 16 School Transport - a special Ridgeway 'Transport to school area' has been created following my campaign: 

I have worked hard to ensure that Sixth Form Students living in the Ridgeway ward will still be able to get to school using school buses - at a cost of £495 per year - whereas students elsewhere will no longer be able to use school buses. I asked James Povoas (Head of the Ridgeway School) and Andy Dury (Head of Wanborough Primary) to assist in ensuring parents were informed of the importance of the recent consultation and there was an overwhelming response from parents in this area. Thanks for your help in this!

FLOODING: I am passionate about stopping people suffering from flooding. I was Chair of the Parish Council’s flood group, liaising regularly with Thames Water, the Environment Agency and Swindon Borough Council to improve the situation for those in the village at risk of flooding. We are the only Parish in the area to have its own ‘Surface Water Flood Plan’ covering our village and have used this to campaign for improvements. In 2016 we saw the completion of a £400,000 project to provide flood mitigation and flood management in the village.

 

AS BOROUGH COUNCILLOR: I will continue to press for improvments and to STOP homes being built in flood plains without proper mitigation


BROADBAND: I have now been given the date of SEPTEMBER for 'go live' in Wanborough & Liddington. Register your interest at www.superfastswindon.com - I have worked closely with Bishopstone and Liddington Parish Council's to campaign for Superfast Broadband for the villages and have attended numerous meetings with Swindon Borough Council, BT and UK Broadband. Now it looks like we are nearly there!!
