Last Thursday I held a public meeting in New Parks with our local police and Leicestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Lord Willy Bach. Local residents raised a range of concerns about crime and especially anti-social behaviour, which is making too many people’s lives a misery.

I am determined to make sure people’s views about these issues are heard loud and clear. If you are a constituent in Leicester West and are experiencing problems like this, please get in touch with my office on either by writing to 42 Narborough Road, Leicester, LE3 0BQ, via email at {at} parliament(.)uk or phone on 0116 2044980.

The 10th December 2016 marked the first anniversary of the Paris climate change agreement which sets out a global action plan to address climate change and reduce global warming. The agreement was signed by the UK along with many other nations who pledged their support towards this important issue but there are concerns that our Government is not doing enough.

Leicester Friends of the Earth have made a Christmas card for the Prime Minister asking for more action on climate change. The card is full of signatures including my own which I will be presenting to the Prime Minister. I have also written to the Prime Minister to ask for assurances that reducing the impact of climate change and global warming is a key priority for the Government.

I recently held a patch walk on Halifax Drive to hear from local residents about speeding and traffic concerns in the area. I will be writing to Leicester City Council and the Police to ensure action is taken to try and stop speeding along Halifax Drive. In particular I will be asking for Halifax Drive to be included in the Council’s city-wide traffic improvement programme.

On Thursday 8th September, I held a further meeting to give residents a chance to put forward their questions about plans for a new housing development on Blackbird Road Playing Fields direct to Barratt Homes and the City Council.

This follows my previous public meeting in July where I asked the Council to delay any progress on the application. This has been agreed and there is still time to submit your views to the Council. You can do this at

A number of residents voiced their concerns that the housing development would increase the traffic in the area, impact on local schools, GP surgeries and the natural environment. I will be raising these concerns with the City Council to ensure that they are given careful consideration and will continue to work closely on this issue.
