Lee Polshaw sets out her priorities for Penkhull & Stoke
Penkhull resident Lee Polshaw is the Labour candidate for the Stoke-on-Trent City Council by-election to be held in Penkhull & Stoke on 1 July 2021.
Lee said, “I am proud to stand as the Labour candidate for the area that I have lived in since 2005. I love and care for my area and want to make a difference in Penkhull and Stoke”.
Setting out for another day on the campaign trail, Lee unveiled her key priorities for the area.
- Stop the Stink
The most urgent issue is to Stop the Stink. We have to sort out the smells coming from the Walley’s Quarry Landfill in Silverdale. The smells are often affecting people in this area. I will join every campaign possible to stop this continuing.
- Clean our streets
I will tackle the dumping of litter and fly tipping in the area. No one should suffer from alleyways being blocked with rubbish. The current Conservative Council keeps rejecting Labour’s plans to improve the tidiness of the the city.
- Tackle parking and unsafe roads
I will do my best to improve the parking situation near the old and new hospital sites. Near the new hospital site, I want to consult our neighbours to ensure the right restrictions are in place and to ensure better enforcement. Restrictions at the old site need reviewing to help stop parking being a nightmare. We could combine this with traffic calming measures, like those on Hilton Road.
- Ensure access to green spaces
I will do everything possible to ensure the green spaces and any shops on the proposed development of the old hospital site are easily accessible for all of our community.
- Help for young people
I feel strongly that we must improve services in the local area for teenagers and young people. When I was growing up there were youth clubs everywhere. Where can they let off steam these days? I’ll work to find a local venue for young people to call their own, where they can enjoy themselves without annoying other residents.
As a local resident, Lee understands the area really well. She said, “I will always work hard for the people and put them first to get their local problems sorted out. I can dedicate my time to the residents of our area”.
Vote Lee, Vote Labour on 1 July.
