Collecting Waste

When debating the new waste contract at Full Council last night the Labour Leader came up with even more implausible excuses for issuing a leaflet during the 2007 election telling lies about our plans.

Remember the Labour claim that we would introduce fortnightly collection of household waste?

Well, here we are over 2 years later: we still have weekly collection of household waste, and we are entering into a 25-year contract to do the same. As part of the package we will be introducing new recycling initiatives in Lordswood - so watch out for them over the next couple of years.

The moral: treat Labour election leaflets with more than touch of scepticism!

Thought it time to breath life into our blog! What better time to do so than when Capstone Valley is once again under threat from developers.

Tracey, David and I, with all the Chatham & Aylesford Conservative team, have been busy delivering leaflets to every house in Lordswood & Capstone Ward, and the response from the public has once again been fabulous. Thousands of responses have come in to the office, and we will make sure that those views are heard during and after the current consultation.

Please write to Medway Council independently as well, as that will count as an additional response - whereas a petition or round-robin letter counts as a single response.

With your support we can save the valley for the third time!
