Janet Richards

Lyndhurst & Fordingbridge – Janet Richards

I live in Martin and have done for 27 years so I know the area well. I help to run the Community Shop in Martin as well as Futurefarms (a community farm).

I am a councillor on Martin Parish Council. I am passionate about our local community and if I see something that is wrong, I want to put it right.

About the Green Party

I am a member of the Green Party because I think it is the only political party that has the answers to the issues faced by ordinary people, like you and me. You can find out more here: www.greenparty.org.uk

“A vote for the Green Party is a vote for a society which helps those in genuine need and isn’t afraid to stand up to those who would destroy the things we value.”

These are some of the important issues I am campaigning on

Affordable housing – Small developments of new houses in our villages for local people. Rents should be deter-mined by wages, not house prices, to make them truly affordable.

Speeding traffic – Much more needs to reduce the speed of traffic in our villages and prevent rat runs.

Climate change – The situation with our climate is now an emergency and the council must act accordingly. Our council should be carbon neutral by 2030 at the latest. All our council-owned buildings, including houses, schools, offices etc. must be powered by renewable energy.

Recycling and plastics – We need recycling collections for food waste. The council should remove single-use plastics from all its offices and leisure centers etc.

Whatever is bothering you—So long as it is relevant to New Forest District Council! Please let me know so that I can represent you and make your voice heard.

Area: Lyndhurst & Fordingbridge Division
