Nick Ball - Green Party
Steve Buckle - Liberal Democrat
Kenneth Fursse - Labour
Chris Green - Conservative
Ben McGilvray - Liberal Democrat
Greg Slater - Conservative
Well, two things we know already about the candidates are that Ben McGilvray spoke and voted against the Joint Core Strategy of 22nd March whilst Chris Green abstained after months of supporting it and ignoring the views of local residents - funny thing to do just before an election! *
We look forward to hearing the views of the other candidates on matters which will affect the lives of thousands of residents in this ward. They, in turn, already know the views of the majority of local residents on the Joint Core Strategy and the inappropriate level of development it will bring to this area - ALL of us will be affected from Wroxham and Hoveton down to the outskirts of Norwich.
We are ready for change and we want both our elected District Councillors to work for the benefit of this area and the people who vote for them.
* Broadland District Council has been contacted and asked for a list of the way all District Councillors voted on the adoption of the Joint Core Strategy on 22nd March and their response was as follows:
"The vote on the adoption of the Joint Core Strategy was taken by a show of hands. The voting was 23 members in favour, 8 against. No recorded vote was requested and so we do not have a list of how each councillor voted."
However, we shall endeavour to provide the list on this Blog at a later date.......
