A259 Traffic Survey

I have been contacted by many local residents about the issue of traffic on the A259. This is something that I have been working on for a very long time and I have raised constituents’ concerns frequently with all our local Councils. It is also one of the many issues that I always discuss when I meet with the Chief Executive Officers from East Sussex and Brighton & Hove. I was pleased to meet the new CEO of Lewes District Council recently together with the Council Leader Councillor Andy Smith to discuss this very important issue.

Coombe Farm Saltdean

An application has been submitted to Brighton & Hove City Council for the development of 67 houses on land at Coombe Farm in Saltdean.

St Aubyns Development

I was delighted to hear the news of Brighton & Hove City Council’s decision on 20th April 2016 to turn down the three planning applications to develop the St Aubyns school campus in Rottingdean. 

Traveller encampment petition

I have repeatedly raised my frustrations at the current approach from Brighton and Hove City Council to dealing with unauthorised traveller encampments. The annual, costly, game of cat and mouse is not sustainable or fair on local residents.

My Plan for Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven

I worked hard over the last five years to make Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven a better place to live, work, and raise a family.I am proud of my record, and there has been considerable progress on many fronts, with unemployment falling, crime rates down, and a fantastic £480 million investment in the redevelopment of the Royal Sussex County Hospital.Whilst this is fantastic, I know that there is more to be done. 

Hospital Campaign - Success

I am delighted that the final business case for redevelopment of the Royal Sussex County Hospital has been approved by the Treasury.The Hospital put forward an outline business case for £420 million which was approved by the Government last year. Following this, due to an increase in the costs of the scheme I lobbied both the Chancellor and the Health Minister for an additional £60 million for the redevelopment.
