Spelthorne Business Plan

The Spelthorne Business Plan Competition — 2017

I am proud to announce the Spelthorne Business Plan Competition again this year.

Brexit

On 23rd June 2016 the Referendum on EU membership resulted in a decision for the UK to leave the EU.

In Spelthorne the vote to leave the EU was 60% of the votes cast.

 

Local roads

Kwasi urged Surrey County Council to resurface Clockhouse Lane and Charlton Road, and this has been done. Alongside local councillors, he petitioned Hounslow Borough against the implementation of a HGV parking ban along the A30 at the border of Spelthorne and Hounslow, a plan that would have led to displaced vehicles parking on our residential roads. They agreed to scrap the plan.  

Shepperton and the M3

Alongside residents and councillors, Kwasi campaigned against Surrey County Council’s proposal to introduce parking charges in Shepperton High Street. The plans, which would have been damaging to local trade and businesses, were successfully defeated.Kwasi is campaigning for a solution to the problems associated with M3 motorway noise. He is pressing the Highways Agency for a commitment to resurface the Shepperton stretch of the M3 with a lower noise material as soon as possible. 

Local Train Stations

Kwasi has been campaigning to implement a Smart Card ticketing system and extend the Oyster Card scheme to local train stations.

Sunbury Health Centre

Kwasi has been working with local councillors and GPs to secure more space to house patients and doctors in Sunbury. He met with NHS England to press for their help; they are being supportive and have now committed £75m to fund capital investment projects. Sunbury Health Centre is well positioned to secure a portion of this funding.

Gravel Extraction

Kwasi is opposed to gravel extraction at Manor Farm in Laleham and Watersplash Farm in Shepperton.Kwasi says: “I am supporting local Conservative councillors in objecting to any applications for development and I am voicing local concerns to the Government about protecting the Green Belt and local agricultural land.”

Local people are backing Kwasi

Local people are backing Kwasi Kwarteng to be our next MP. They want Kwasi to be the strong local voice that Spelthorne needs.

Heathrow Expansion

The debate about the third runway at Heathrow has been dragging on for over 15 years during which time the UK has been losing its market share to other European airports such as Amsterdam and Paris.
