Active in the Community
There is so much happening in the Borough from week to week. We are very lucky to have so many active clubs and societies. Kwasi isn’t afraid of getting involved. He has always championed the unique heritage of the Borough and backed local voluntary organisations. Kwasi enjoys many aspects of Spelthorne life. He supports the Spelthorne Natural History Society, Voluntary Action in Spelthorne and the Spelthorne Museum.
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.
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.
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.”
