Your Conservative Candidate for Oxhey Hall and Hayling - Mary Sangster
I have lived locally for over 30 years. My background is in marketing and retail, working for major chain stores. Recently I have worked in the Third Sector running chains of charity shops.
Over the years, I have shopped regularly in Watford and South Oxhey. The benefits of local shops include convenience, ease of access, and a place to interact with other people.
Our green belt is vital and must be protected. I will work to ensure our area is not overdeveloped, that we have no more high-rise tower blocks, that there is adequate parking, and that our roads are safe.
I recognise the need to provide more housing, but the Liberal Democrats’ have failed yet again to stick to the timetable to introduce a Local Plan. This leaves us unable to defend ourselves from the danger of random overdevelopment from greedy developers. It now seems we will be told after this election which sites they are again reviewing for inclusion.
Our area needs a strong representative who is passionate about making sure this remains a great place to live.
