Arun District Council

 

Faye CattersonFaye Catterson District Councillor representing Arundel and Walberton  

I moved to Arundel in 2008. I met my husband who has lived in the area all his life. We like to spend time at the local beaches and green spaces walking our dogs with our daughter. I enjoy looking after our four happy hens who provide us with delicious eggs. I also like growing our own vegetables, herbs and flowers to attract the bees and butterflies. I'm very concerned about our environment in general but on a local level the air quality, plastic pollution and new developments need to be addressed. I'm opposed to fracking and the use of fossel fuels as climate change is a very real threat that needs to be addressed immediately. I am passionate about our environment, animal welfare, human rights and equality.

Isabel ThurstonIsabel Thurston representing Barnham and Eastergate

Our biggest challenge in Barnham and Eastergate is living with the enormous new development being imposed on our coummunity over the next ten years. I have lived in Barnham for 20 years and have been active locally in trying to protect our environment, most recently by joining Barnham Parish Council (now Barnham and Eastergate council). I have been attending the Arun District Council working party meetings as the Local Plan is finalised, in the hope of mitigating the worst effects of the plans. If elected to the District Council I will challenge the current majority who have demonstrated a complete lack of commitment to preserving the environment on behalf of local people and future generations. I will continue to push for solutions to traffic congestion, for environmental standards on new housing, alternative energy sources and the preservation of green spaces. I will insist that the council puts the environment ahead of profit when appointing contractors, not least by ensuring there is an officer in charge of this area. I will support sustainable housing and business initiatives, and stand up for residents.

 

Chichester District Council

Sarah SharpSarah Sharp representing Chichester South

I am keen to continue the work I have started on the City Council and to join the Working Group on Climate Change and Single-Use plastics that I helped to set up in January.

I am keen to continue to hold the large Conservative majorities to account – calling out their expenditure on statues, replacing like for like bike racks, fighting the closure of the law courts, the excessive concentration on Growth Plans and profit instead of putting people and the planet first.

I am a Member of the Homelessness Forum that was set up by the Mayor and as I am involved in the Heart Project and also support Stonepillow, I think I am uniquely placed to try and bring these different partners together.

I have campaigned for nearly 10 years on cycling. After the initial success of getting in 20mph limits, I am still working hard to champion safe pavements, protected cycle routes and to fight for cheaper and cleaner buses. I am running an Anti-Idling campaign in Whyke as I know that our councils are not doing enough to combat air pollution. I support campaigns for reduction in single-use plastics and the Refill Project.

I have also worked hard to support Muchos Nachos at the Crown from closing and have successfully brought music events with the University and supported other events and activities in the pub eg games chest, . Being on the Council is a helpful tool in many of the campaigns I run and support eg Friends of Centurion Way, the Crown Community Pub Hub, Clean Air Chichester, ChiCycle, 20’s Plenty for Chichester and the Community Phone Box where we share books and toys.

I work hard to communicate what the councils do on social media and to share as much as I can the meetings I attend. I enjoy meeting people and linking people together to help things to happen. I aim to encourage people to get involved and take part.

I live in Chichester South and believe this can help me understand the concerns of the people who live here better. We don’t pay for our leaflets to be delivered and this means that I do get to know every door in the ward. I do my best to listen to people’s concerns and take their problems forward. I believe in working for the Common Good and work hard for the health and well being of the community in which I am lucky enough to live.

Natalie Hume representing Loxwood

Natalie Hume representing Loxwood 

In my role as district councillor I am focused on protecting our local area, which involves mitigating the impact of climate change and other environmental crises. The climate emergency is one aspect of an interconnecting complex of environmental crises, including devastating plastic waste, air pollution, overconsumption of energy and dysfunctional agriculture. Environmental problems are not easily solved, but I believe it is essential to put such problems at the forefront of all decision making. I am committed to representing Loxwood with integrity and clarity, in keeping with my personal values. I feel my voice for Loxwood will be strongest and most effective from within the Green Party.
