My Priorities for Spelthorne

“If I am lucky enough to become your MP I will take your views to parliament and ensure that they are heard.”

“In everything I do, Spelthorne will come first.”

Spelthorne has thousands of homes at severe risk of flooding.


I have made strong representations to the Government, and written to all local MPs, asking them to improve flood defences for Spelthorne residents.


In particular I have asked them to fund and implement the Lower Thames Flood Strategy as a matter of urgency.


My response to the ‘Flood and Water Management Bill has been picked up by the press:













Spelthorne’s School buildings include some of the worst in the County.


Surrey is therefore proposing to put Spelthorne first in its proposals to rebuild schools under the Government’s ‘Building Schools for the Future’ regime. As a member of the Cabinet on Surrey County Council I voted for this prioritization of Spelthorne.


Brooklands College:


The Government have pulled the plug on funding for the College leaving it millions of pounds in debt and considering closing it’s A level classes.   I am glad that a new head has been appointed who is now trying to keep A level courses at the college.





I have been fighting to get the management at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals to improve its infection control.


As a member of the Health Scrutiny Committee responsible for monitoring the hospital, I had a specific role for monitoring the levels of MRSA and C. difficile incidents at the hospital.


I am pleased that over the last year the hospital has made good progress and halved the number of patients catching an infection in hospital.




Proposal for flagship ‘Eco Park’ at Charlton Lane



On Tuesday 15th December 2009 I announced plans to build an Eco Park on the Charlton Lane site, to replace the current waste disposal facility.


This will have a state of the art gasifier and anaerobic digester to derive green energy;  An innovation centre to trial new technologies for recycling different products; and a materials reuse and recycling centre.


The buildings will all be built with energy conservation in mind, including rain water harvesting, green roofs and solar panels.   There will be less lorry movements in and out of the site than at present, improving the air quality and congestion for residents.



There will be an Education Centre to complement the Community Recycling Centre, which has been refurbished, which I opened with the Mayor of Spelthorne on 11th December.

Flood Protection

…Surrey County Council has also spotted that the sums don’t work, with cabinet member for the environment Dr Lynne Hack pointing out that it is “unrealistic to expect the costs of the new role will be balanced by savings from avoiding flood damage”….
