Macclesfield Express - - LOCAL ELECTIONS 2015 -


MACCLESFIELD CEN­TRAL – Adrian Howard MACCLESFIELD SOUTH – Jane Leigh MACCLESFIELD WEST and IVY – Martin Ault BRO­KEN CROSS and UP­TON – David Lan­g­ley PREST­BURY – John Davies GAWSWORTH – Alis­tair Good­win HURDS­FIELD – Ti­mothy Cooper KIP are unique in lo­cal gov­ern­ment. Our Coun­cil­lors

Uare not con­trolled by a party whip, we are en­cour­aged to rep­re­sent the needs of those who vote for us.

Around the coun­try, we’re giv­ing peo­ple and com­mu­ni­ties what they de­serve – more power for lo­cal peo­ple and more say over what hap­pens in their lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Coun­cil fund­ing needs an ur­gent re­view. We must pro­tect the ser­vices that the most vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple in the com­mu­nity rely on, pre­vent de­vel­op­ers from con­cret­ing over the coun­try­side, pro­tect our pen­sion­ers, look af­ter our vet­er­ans and help our young peo­ple seek­ing work. We all come from dif­fer­ent walks of life and un­der­stand the com­mu­ni­ties we wish to rep­re­sent. If elected, we will work to:

l Tackle anti-so­cial acts like lit­ter­ing and dog foul­ing.

l Re­new our dam­aged roads and in­fra­struc­ture.

l Pro­vide for the needs of our grow­ing el­derly pop­u­la­tion.

l Scrap car park­ing charges at hos­pi­tals in Cheshire East.

l Sup­port town cen­tre re­gen­er­a­tion and ini­tia­tives to en­sure empty shops are re­oc­cu­pied.

l Keep down car park­ing charges and in­tro­duce limited free car park­ing in the town cen­tre.

l Put our po­lice force back on the beat.

l Scrap the Bed­room Tax.

l Pri­ori­tise lo­cal peo­ple in the al­lo­ca­tion of so­cial hous­ing.

l Sup­port and in­crease fund­ing for lo­cal hos­pi­tal and hospice ser­vices.

l Re­duce bu­reau­cratic waste in public ser­vices.

Our team of can­di­dates want to im­prove democ­racy, save tax­pay­ers’ money, roll up our sleeves, work hard and serve the com­mu­nity.
