Controlling aircraft noise
Intrusive levels of aircraft noise affects many of my constituents, especially those living towards the west of Tunbridge Wells. I have been working alongside community groups and local experts to press for Gatwick, the airlines and the regulators, to change flightpaths and operate quieter aircraft.
Supporting local communities and businesses
We are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places in Britain and we need to work together to keep our towns and villages vibrant. I work closely with Parish Councils and community groups throughout the constituency to ensure that our towns and villages are great places to live, work and visit.
Backing young people
I believe that every young person should be able to get a good place in a good school, get an apprenticeship, job, or a place at university and get onto the housing ladder locally. I am working with local schools and employers to improve the chances of young people with special educational needs to gain work experience.
