Thank you very much for supporting myself and Councillor Mahmadur Khan, and for giving both of us the opportunity to represent you over the next four years as your councillors for Eastville.

Thank you very much for supporting myself and Councillor Mahmadur Khan, and for giving both of us the opportunity to represent you over the next four years as your councillors for Eastville.
As well as day to day casework and representing our community at a city wide level, we have been actively involved over the past few years in a number of community campaigns.  We pledge to continue to support these campaigns and work to deliver resolutions.
 We pledge to continue to:
1. Work with community groups to tackle flytipping, littering and improve street cleaning, whilst increasing recycling and reuse options
2. Work with the Highways England to get noise barriers installed along the M32, and with Litterarti and other organisations in improving the currently empty space under it
3. Work with Fishponds Planning in the production of a Neighbourhood Plan to promote positive local development, and continue to oppose damaging ones
4. Work with the new areas in our ward, seeking out opportunities for community development
5. Tackle dangerous or inappropriate traffic schemes (such as Hockey’s Lane and East Park), and promote positive schemes that will enable our residents to move around
safely
6. Work with Friends of Eastville park to deliver new facilities and access to our park
7. To deliver a new pool for East Bristol
