ascot & sunninghill: Tamasin Barnbrook

Tamasin now, lives in Sunninghill and has lived in our area for 10 years since moving here from London with her partner and now 13 year old son.

Tamasin commutes daily to London by train and bike for work as a Personal Assistant and would like to see more being done locally about traffic, pollution and parking particularly in Sunninghill and South Ascot.

ascot & sunninghill: Aaron Chahal

Aaron has lived in Ascot for 12 years. Aaron works for British Airways Pensions, and is training to become a chartered accountant.

Aaron is concerned about the lack of competence shown by the current council in managing financial and planning maters. In particular he is concerned about the growing council debt being run up by the Conservative administration at the council and the failure to produce a coherent "Local Plan" to determine planning policy for our area.

"I'm concerned that without a coherent plan, we will see increased trafic congestion and further over stretch in public services. Many local residents are having to wait 3 or more weeks to see a GP because community infrastructure doesn't keep up with increasing population.

Another concern of Aaron's is lack of local democracy with the council dominated by the Conservatives (54 out of 57 seats in 2015) there is a lack of proper scrutiny of policies, resulting in bad decision making, such as the recent £100,000 spent on propaganda banners and a promotional video for the council.
