Your Hanover & Elm Grove Councillors
Your Green Councillors are:
I am a community worker and housing campaigner and have lived in Hanover for 19 years. I set up Hanover Action for Sustainable Living (HASL) with my partner, Sarah. I am active in the Local Action Team and have been pressing for a ‘people’s plan’ to improve our streets, a community scheme based on our priorities from the community survey. I am passionate about decent homes for all and have set up national campaigns which succeeded in changing the law to halt the privatisation of council housing and to secure more resources. Most recently I started a Living Rent Campaign to push for fair rent and more secure tenancies in private rented housing.
I have lived with my family in the ward for many years. Before retiring recently I was a social worker and manager in local goverment, then a charity advice worker and advocate for carers, disabled and older people. I have recently been lobbying the bus company to improve local services, as well as helping to solve problems concerning parking and access for fire engines and refuse lorries. I’ve also been assisting councillors with issues such as obstructed pavements, missed refuse collections and nightime noise. I will work with residents to improve the area and get the best out of services – and I’ll always try to fulfil my promises.
