Binita Mehta-Parmar

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.
