Your Candidates for the Littleport Ward
Littleport needs better services, more doctors and school places – not just new housing.
This area badly needs more homes that are affordable, so that young families can live locally and not have to move to Wisbech or Peterborough to find somewhere they can afford.
The Conservatives running the Council have let developers have free rein across the district and our villages are suffering as a result.
But with the housing we need the services that every family needs. People shouldn’t have to wait weeks to see their doctor and we must always ensure that there are enough school places in Littleport itself so that children can go to a local school within the city.
The Conservatives running East Cambs have been making these problems worse, not better. Too many planning decisions favour developers rather than local residents and the Conservative shambles over the local plan will allow developers a field day.
"The potholes, not just in our roads, but also our pavements, are dangerous for residents with prams and wheelchairs" said Martin Double, "Littleport residents deserve to have safe pavements."
There badly needs to be a clear out at the council.
