I am opposing Warwick District Council’s proposals to sell off their Riverside House site for exclusive use of private housing and build new offices on part of the Covent Garden site in Leamington alongside a new multi-storey car park. As a result, there will be no car parking available on the Covent Garden Car Park for at least 20 months.
The complete absence of affordable housing in their plans is scandalous. The cost of the project in a time of austerity makes it totally unjustifiable. 800 people rely on Covent Garden Car Park per day. Half of those who use it do so to shop in Leamington Town Centre, while up to 35% of shoppers are from Coventry. The loss of 800 people a day not coming to Leamington will seriously undermine the viability of many Leamington Town Centre businesses.

Today was critically important as MPs succeeded in ensuring that Johnson's reckless Brexit plans would be properly scrutinised and put on hold. He must not be allowed to ride roughshod over our democracy again. Conservative MP Oliver Letwin’s amendment to the Brexit deal was passed by the House of Commons, which put the brakes on Johnson's plans to ensure there is enough time for MPs to verify his plans, seek analysis of the costs and damage to our economy under the proposals further. He must now ask for an extension to the Brexit deadline. If he doesn't, he will be breaking the law.I supported this vote as I simply do not trust Johnson and his government - we need this assurance that he cannot take us out of the EU without a deal by the backdoor.Now we must vote down this deal, which is worse than May's. It will lead to a reduction in worker's rights and removes protections to the environment; it will cause tensions at the ports which will harm local businesses.#VoteDownTheDealwww.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-50110601 ...

Yesterday I went on Midlands Today to discuss the farcical pantomime that was Johnson's Queen Speech. It was nothing more than a party political broadcast tick box exercise in an attempt to distract us from the shambles that is his Brexit plans.A true comedy of errors... ... See MoreSee Less
Last month, I wrote to the Prime Minister to highlight the unacceptable levels of cuts his party has delivered to the NHS, and to urge him to prioritise significant investment in to Warwick Hospital.Johnson announced his pre-election giveaway to the public for 20... then 40... then perhaps just 6 hospital upgrades.Constituents will know that this is simply an electioneering stunt to try and divert people's attention away from his disastrous Brexit 'plans'. It is his own Government that has cut the NHS to the bone since 2010, and this new policy goes no where near far enough to fix the under-investment that we have seen.In the letter, I highlighted to him how fantastic Warwick Hospital is, with its excellent reputation and great staff who do their best for patients. However, it is in serious need of investment to ensure it can deliver the best possible service.His Government must prioritise Warwick Hospital for investment. I hope he takes me up on my offer to meet with him and the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, to discuss further. ... See MoreSee Less
