Alphington - Exeter City Council Labour Candidate
It is a privilege to have been selected to stand in the Exeter City Election for Labour again in Alphington.
I have lived in Alphington for over 30 years and know the area well and have served the area as an Exeter City Councillor since 2016. Traffic and congestion are a real concern along with the associated air pollution issues. Any development will see further increases in traffic. Over recent times, we have had issues with speeding in our community, I have spoken to the police and we are in the process of setting up a speed watch.
The main concern for many residents in Alphington is the proposed housing development and the effects that it will have on the local community. Although I accept that there is a need for more housing, the development of the areas around Alphington is only acceptable to meet the housing needs of the area and not just to satisfy the commercial aims of developers.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can before the elections in May, but if you have any concerns or issues you’d like to raise, feel free to get in touch.
Steve is an experienced Exeter City Councillor whose term of office is:
- 05/05/2016 – 06/05/2021
