Better broadband for people in Headcorn
Superfast broadband is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. Whether you’re running a business, staying in touch with family, doing homework or paying your bills, a quick and reliable internet connection is essential. But parts of Kent, including Headcorn, are getting left behind.
Making train travel more accessible
I'm determined to improve people's experience of rail travel in Kent. This includes fairer fares so people have the option of flexible season tickets and proper compensation when something goes wrong. We also need to make our trains and stations more user friendly for people who are less mobile, including disabled people and parents with pushchairs.
Control expansion of Gypsy and Traveller sites
Kent has a long tradition of welcoming travellers and they are a valued part of our community. However in some areas, particularly around the villages of Headcorn, Ulcombe and Staplehurst, there has been such quick and uncontrolled growth of traveller sites that the permanent residents feel there is one rule for them and another for Travellers.
