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.

Very promising to hear that the proposed Kenilworth to Leamington (K2L) cycle route will be approved tomorrow by Warwickshire County Council. For a while I have been supporting and campaigning for this project to become a reality as it will provide enormous environmental, safety, and economic benefits to our two towns and the wider region.I wrote to the Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps in October to ask for funding for this specific line. I also as raised this specific cycle route to the Government in Parliament back in July.It is projects like this that need funding and be made a reality if we are to truly improve the environment. If re-elected, I will ensure #warwick and #leamington secures improvements to our local public transport, including my proposals for a truly transformative Leamington Transport Hub.www.youtube.com/watch?v=crEMQeWuf_syoutube.com ...

Visited the service at the Warwick war memorial today for #ArmisticeDay. A poignant service where we fell silent to mark the end of the First World War. We remember all those who lost their lives in the First World War and every conflict since.I met veterans Dave and Gordon who, like so many of them, are true heroes who we must look after - just as they looked after us. ...
