Spelthorne Business Plan

Kwasi launched the Spelthorne Business Plan Competition in 2013 as a way of identifying budding local entrepreneurs. The idea was inspired by a visit to Brooklands College, where Kwasi met students with lots of exciting ideas and practical skills.

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.

Brexit

As we approach the first anniversary of the historic 23 June referendum, there has been a great deal of debate, legal wranglings and political interventions over the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.

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.

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.
