Gemma Moore

Candidate for Handside

The last year has been a challenging year for all of us, and I have really appreciated how lucky I am to live here with access to green spaces and the level of caring our community has shown. 

Last year, I was excited to be the candidate for Handside having spoken to many of you and to hopefully join our growing Liberal Democrat group on the Borough Council. I still feel that, but also more determined and passionate to ensure we plan for a sustainable and bright future, especially for our younger generation. A fresh start after years of stagnation under the Conservatives.

Your Liberal Democrat Councillors in Handside tirelessly work to improve the area and support residents. If elected as your local councillor, I want to use my knowledge as a housing professional specialising in health, fire safety and the environment to work with our team to push for better maintenance of housing and open spaces. Having seen some of the poor standard of housing construction over the last few decades I want to ensure that this is not repeated in our area.

As a parent with a young family, I want to help secure their future by properly tackling climate change, not just empty words. Careful consideration needs to be given to our local plan and where we allocate new homes; we need to protect our communities from being overwhelmed. I do oppose the revised planning application for the Broadwater development. Our garden city is a fantastic town. It must not be downgraded by indifference or neglect.

This is our chance to change our area for the better. If you agree with me, please lend me your vote on Thursday 6th May.
