Regeneration of our high street with a focus on reduced costs for businesses so that our towns and its shops are worth visiting. Too many shops are charity shops or left empty.

Resurfacing of Churchgate House car park - on a floodplain. Islands forming, weeds and large plants growing and trees dipping in river mole are adding to its flood risk. No authority is impressing on landowners their riparian responsibilities in Lincolnshire, the Parish Councils and District Councils considered this one of their important duties in Elmbridge. No one bothers quite horrifying.
