I’m Paul Robinson, a local business-owner and Godalming resident who wants to protect our greenbelt, our natural environment and vastly improve our transportation system. I also want to improve how we do politics in this country, and make it far more representative, especially for younger people. I hope you’ll get involved too, and consider standing for election where you live.
We believe in:
building a sustainable and progressive society for everyone’s future, where nobody is left behind
an open, transparent and accountable government which protects the privacy of its citizens
taking the right decisions for the long term, not just tomorrow’s papers
rational and evidence-based policy-making, with less room for special interests and lobbying
In SW Surrey and Waverley we want to:
provide considerable more affordable housing using existing brownfield sites, and by building upwards before we ever build out into our valuable greenbelt
improve roads by making it safer to cycle or walk to our local schools or into town centres
provide a bus service from each town that goes direct to the Royal Surrey Hospital
increase the frequency of weekend train services
defend our countryside from the industrial fracking of shale oil and gas
ensure any increases in Councillor’s allowances are directly linked to wage increases paid to Council employees
have access to greater powers pushed down to local government via a fully devolved English Parliament within a federal UK
