Robert Buckland QC MP is a fantastic support for both residents in South Swindon as our MP and for me as your Ridgeway Ward Councillor.
From a personal view, I have spent many years working with Robert and he is passionate about his work as an MP and is excellent at constituency work, supporting residents and helping the communities that he represents.
For me as the Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning he has been enormously supportive, helping Swindon to secure over £100m in grant funding towards essential local highways schemes which will ensure that our roads are improved and the infrastructure of our town doesnt falter, as much needed new homes are created.
His recent promotion in Government to the role of Justice Minister & Lord Chancellor is welcomed for Robert, but it also helps Swindon with Robert able to support his town from a Cabinet position.
Robert supported our bid for a Heritage Action Zone in the Town to try to protect some of our much loved buildings and he is actively supporting us in trying to deliver high quality 'superfast' broadband for all residents.
He and his fellow Swindon Conservative MP Justin Tomlinson have helped secure better funding for Swindon's schools and support for our new 'Institute of Technology'.
Robert supports businesses and workers in Swindon.
