Myles is proud to have served the residents of the ward that he and his family live in, and takes an active part in many local societies and activities.
The main reason that I have been a local councillor since 1987 is to serve the people that I represent to the best of my ability.
I pride myself that I have been active on your behalf on many issues such as the traffic problems of speeding and parking, the state of our roads and footpaths, behaviour problems and many planning issues affecting our area.
I have used my member’s budget to give financial assistance to our uniformed groups such as guides, scouts and brownies. I have also paid for two new community notice boards in Hooton and Willaston and for much-needed equipment to help the members of the Willaston Village Festival Society and the Willaston Village Hall Committee. The hard-working members of these and other local groups deserve our continuing support.
The near future will be very challenging for our community. Our Green Belt must continue to be protected against illegal activities. The proposed large housing development at Roften must be done sympathetically to help our local environment and not be allowed to overwhelm our schools, medical practices and roads.
Every item of Council spending must bring value for money to our council tax payers.
