Getting things done

on 17 March 2015.

Hungerford's elected representatives now have a microsite where you can keep up to date with their activities and find contact details and social networking links to have your own say. Here Councilor Paul Hewer talks to Hungerford Townsite about some of the projects he has worked that are particularly close to his heart.

LOOKING BACK WITH PRIDE AND FORWARD WITH EXCITEMENT

As we approach election time, we are aware that residents will be starting to look back over the town’s progress over the past few years to help them make a decision come polling day on May 7.

We have much to be proud of and it is the community itself which has made Hungerford flourish. Take for example the determination of the residents of Hungerford Newtown who did not want to see their local pub lost forever to development. fantastic townThey rallied to ensure the Tally Ho was re-opened as a Community Pub and it’s now thriving as a popular watering hole for villagers and Hungerford people – myself included!

We also know that there are many public areas which are cherished by locals which is why we were so committed to supporting Hungerford Town Council’s takeover of Croft Field and Triangle Field so this essential local space was protected for the enjoyment of the townspeople.

Sensible and forward thinking planning decisions have also ensured that all local needs are met, such as the opening last year of the Extra Care Priory Development, Redwood House and Lindley Lodge in conjunction with Sovereign Housing. The proposed re-development of Fairfields and North View Heights will also contribute to further high quality social housing.

Regarding the town’s business success stories, the future Garden Art “Artisan” development deserves special mention given the additional new business this will bring in.

So much to be proud of and so much more we can still achieve to ensure Hungerford and its residents continue to thrive and prosper.
