I am a public sector worker, commuting daily to Oxford. I know, first hand, of the impact of cuts to local services and I also know the daily grind of travelling in/out of our villages and relying on public transport.
I will encourage the adoption of innovative shared owenership, social rent and key worker schemes with private developers that encourage access to low cost home ownership for local people.
* I will listen to residents, hold monthly drop in sessions and provide strong representation on the District Council.
* I will stand up for our precious, village services in the face of damaging Conservative-led cuts.
* I will fight hard to oppose unsustainable development and hold the Tory-led Council to account for a failure to produce a workable local plan.
