Steve Wastell has been working on the local issues that matter to people in Little Neston & Ness.
For example, he has been working with local residents to identify opportunities for the former Wheatsheaf pub in Ness. Steve said:
"The Wheatsheaf Pub in Ness is now up for sale and I recently completed a survey across Little Neston and Ness to assess the level of support for a community pub. I am very pleased that there was an overwhelming response in favour. I will continue to work with the community to try and achieve this outcome."
Steve is also keen to tackle speeding problems across the ward. Steve said:
"There is a problem with motorists exceeding speed limits across the ward. We need to introduce some traffic calming measures, but first there should be consultation to ensure sensible and effective methods are used. I will also continue to encourage responsible dog ownership. As a dog owner, it saddens me to see some people do not clean up after their dogs."
If elected as your Councillor, Steve will work hard to secure more investment into our ward. Steve said:
"As well as securing more investment in our roads and pavements, I’ll campaign for investment in our community assets, such as the Town Hall and Civic Hall. In spite of their record tax rises, Labour keep telling us they don’t have the funds. But in truth they just haven’t prioritised our community. I’ll put investment in the Neston area first."
Steve will also support the key Conservative pledges for Cheshire West & Chester, specifically:
- SCRAP LABOUR'S GREEN BIN TAX. The Labour-run Council now charges local residents £40 per year to collect Green Waste. Conservative Councillors will scrap the Green Bin Tax over the next four years.
- IMPROVE OUR ROADS AND PAVEMENTS. It is obvious that our roads and pavements need investment. Conservatives will increase the maintenance budget to £4.5 million per year - reversing Labour's local cuts.
- BRING BACK FREE AFTER 3 CAR PARKING. We will re-introduce "Free After 3" car parking across the borough to help ease the financial pressure on local residents and support our high street and town centres.
- PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT. To protect our environment, we will continue to take action on tackling climate change and reducing the amount going to landfill from Cheshire West and Chester.
- SUPPORT LOCAL SHOPS AND BUSINESSES. Small businesses are the beating heart of our local economy. They need a Council that is on their side, promoting growth and investment across the borough.
- NO MORE 'TAX TO THE MAX'. Council Tax has been increasing by the maximum allowable rate, leaving residents paying 40% more since 2016/17. We will end Labour's "tax to the max" policy.
