One of my main priorities to get started on as your County Councillor for Galley Common is to continue to campaign for safer roads throughout the Galley Common Division. I will now have an annual budget for road improvements across the ward and will be speaking to Highways officers at Shire Hall as a priority to start the ball rolling.

Dog mess and litter are issues I'm often contacted about. I regularly report both and will continue to campaign for waste bins in problem areas and for action to be taken against irresponsible dog owners who put the health of others at risk.
Please continue to contact me and do send photos (but not of dog poo please!) and as much information as possible to help the council. I also check the Galley Common & The Shires Residents Facebook Group most days too.
As well as petitioning for traffic calming measures I have recently met with the chairman of Haunchwood Football Club to discuss the poor state of the council owned Haunchwood Pavilion on Park Lane. I have raised the issue with officers of the council and at a recent Full Council meeting. I am now in the process of trying to arrange a meeting with three council officers to discuss the possibility of giving the pavilion back to the club. Come back soon for updates.
Children in our ward clearly need more access to play areas. There is a clear lack of adequate play parks in some areas of Galley Common and Whittleford and the parks we do have are equipped with outdated or inadequate play equipment.
Off road motorcyclists riding through busy roads, across walkways and around play areas is a an issue I regularly hear of. I have met with this Warwickshire Police to discuss this and they do want to help. Residents are urged to report incidents to the police by calling 101. They do have an off road motorcycle team and will come to Galley Common if we keep reporting it.
