Born and raised in Watford and having lived locally all her life,. Binita understands the local issues in Nascot and after meeting many of you on the door she is putting them front and centre of her campaign moving forward.
WORKING WITH BUSINESSES AND SHOPS IN NASCOT
Conservative values and policies are already backing local companies by cutting
corporation tax from 28% in 2010 to the current 19% rate. I want to build on these for
Nascot. I understand the issues facing small businesses in our area, especially given my
family are small business owners locally. I’ll run a local business forum, bringing together
employers, community groups & the Council to ensure our local economy thrives and gives
local people good jobs.
HOUSING DEVELOPMENT THAT WORKS FOR US
Having lived locally all my life, I understand the impact that large scale development can
have on our community. I’ll make sure that the new housing Watford needs works for us,
not just developers, and that we protect our Green Belt. I’ll fight to ensure that a fair
percentage is allocated to affordable housing, helping our young people realise their
dream of buying their first home; keeping Watford’s families together.
ROADS & PAVEMENTS
Hertfordshire County Council are providing additional investment of £26m over the next 4
years into our core road network to ensure they are maintained to the high standards
residents expect. I will be monitoring the pavements and roads making sure they are in
good condition and potholes or dangerous pavements will be reported and repaired.
KEEPING NASCOT’S STREETS CLEAN
I recognise the hard work that community groups such as Nascot Residents Association do
on behalf of the local community. Together with Watford Conservatives’ initiative, Watford’s
Rubbish Friends, where residents can report litter in their neighbourhood and a team will
come and clean it up, I will ensure Nascot’s streets are kept up to scratch!
WORKING TOGETHER TO CUT CRIME
The types of crime we face locally are different to those in nearby areas of Watford. I will
work together with local groups to organise a monthly Police Q&A in Nascot, ensuring local
voices are heard. I will also work with the Police & Crime Commissioner David Lloyd to
maintain community safety, meet the needs of victims and ensure offenders pay.
