MY PROMISE TO WORK FOR YOU
My name is John Stone and like you I live on Canvey. I amstanding for election on 5th May to represent friends andneighbours in Winter Gardens ward and help deliver genuine improvements to residents right across our Island.
I do not believe in running down my opposition, so you will find my message is a positive one. I truly believe that with a little help from local positive minded councillors the Canvey community can thrive.
I am a great believer in the importance of a strong local community which is why it is essential that we lean on our shared Canvey history and promote the safe, polite, community minded society we all deserve to live in.
I was at the forefront of the campaign to stop the vehicle racing around Roscommon Way which eventually led to the Public Space Protection Order process being instigated. Hopefully with this in place we can empower local police officers to confront this social problem and kick ‘boy racing’ off our Island for good. As we know, the traffic on our Island can be horrendous at times so I intend to lobby for improvements to the road system both large and small. One such major improvement would be the Roscommon Way extension which would ease pressure on our main roads.
It was a great relief to see so many councillors vote against unacceptably large developments on Canvey. If elected I promise to bring the voice of our Island community into planning discussions so that we can propose a Plan that is right and acceptable for our area. Flooding and hazardous sites must be taken properly into consideration as mitigating factors to reduce housing numbers. Our considerations have to be about finding the right balance with affordable family homes the absolute priority. It is time for an open conversation. Community buildings where people can meet, celebrate, and are active provide an essential service to our Island. I will campaign for fit for purpose community facilities and try, where possible, to put buildings like the Paddocks directly in the hands of local charities.
As a councillor I can strive to finally make these important solutions a reality. On 5th May we have an opportunity to vote for positive change for our Island. Please lend me your vote so that I can be the voice asking the right questions for Canvey.
Thank you John Stone
