Throughout the week I have been out delivering leaflets and canvassing for the local elections.
On Tuesday, I attended the Traffic Management Committee at Chicksands to speak in support of the Hockliffe Road residents petitioning the Council for a residents parking scheme. Although this has not yet been agreed, the Council is looking at how parking can be improved for residents, and if not successful will look at it again in a few months.
I also attended a Children’s Services briefing.
On Wednesday I visited Tiddenfoot Centre to speak to the management (Stevenage Leisure) about residents concerns over price increases, class sizes and the cleanliness of the centre. I made them very aware of the views of local residents, but unfortunately they will not budge on prices. The problems with cleanliness is down to the age and condition of the centre – although not an immediate resolution, CBC have announced plans for a new leisure centre as part of the eastern development.
On Wednesday evening I attended a Governors’ Meeting at Leedon School.
On Thursday I attended the General Purposes Committee at CBC. We were looking at the process for the forthcoming review of ward boundaries by the Electoral Commission.
On Saturday I was out on patrol with Streetwatch – a lovely day to be around the town.
