Philip Lumb: Brighouse seems a low priority for resources
New homes are all well and good but where’s the plan for the essential infrastructure to support the incoming families, asks Philip Lumb, who is standing for the Yorkshire Party in Brighouse ward in Calderdale Council.
Philip is committed to the area – having lived in Brighouse for more than 40 years – and wants the necessary support for the 4,500 new homes planned for the district.
Among the issues Philip tells voters he is focused on are:
“Parking meters are a deterrent to shoppers at a time when we should be encouraging shoppers to visit and support local businesses.
“Brighouse always seems to be a low priority for Calderdale Council money should to be shared better.
“The state of the roads in Brighouse is appalling. Money needs spending to improve them dramatically.
“Respect the loved ones: Brighouse cemetery has been neglected and it’s about time it was looked after properly.”
After spreading his message during doorstep canvassing for the local elections on May 2, Philip said the battle with his rivals had made him even more committed to show that a vote for him was definitely not going to the wasted.
