Boosting our local economy

A strong, vibrant economy is the lifeblood of every community and I fully support the work of Orpington 1st to encourage local retailers to help create new jobs and opportunities here in Orpington.

A better deal for commuters

I continue to press Southeastern for improved services for all rail users and in particular to ensure there are enough services with sufficient capacity to cope with passenger numbers at peak times.

Preserving our cherished green belt

I am determined to continue to protect Orpington's green and leafy areas from overdevelopment. This area is unique, combining the best of Kent with the best of London.

High quality healthcare

Securing the provision of strong local health services in Orpington for the long term remains my number one priority.

Stamping out anti-social behaviour

I am determined to tackle the anti-social behaviour that can make people's lives a misery. We should not have to put up with yobbish and inconsiderate behaviour and I applaud those who stand up against it.

St George's Chapel at Biggin Hill

The former Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, set out a £1 million grant in the 2015 Budget to secure the future of St George's RAF Chapel of Remembrance in Biggin Hill.
