Judi Ellis your local Conservative Councillor for the last 12 years. I have held regular advice sessions at the Resource Centre Cotmandene Crescent and/or visited residents at home to help with issues ranging from Disability benefits to overshadowing trees. I have liaised with the DWP, Housing Associations, the Environment Agency, the police and schools to assist residents and I continue to represent residents views on planning and development issues.
Working with your local MP, Bob Neil, we have cleared the Waste4Fuel site and I am backing the residents campaign to create a green accessible space.
I am Governor at both Midfield and Riverside schools and have supported the expansion of all the 1 form entry primary schools to 2 form entry enabling local children to attend the good and outstanding schools in the ward.
I have lived in Orpington for over 30 years and both my children have chosen to raise their family in Orpington.
There are pressures on housing, parking and transport in the ward, but I will continue to work to ensure we have good schools, affordable housing, a local library, good policing and an environment we can all enjoy.
