Cllr Graham Pooley
Moulsham and Central
Graham has been a Chelmsford Councillor for 14 of the last 20 years, and is a widely respected, sometimes angry, player in the Council's Housing and Development meetings, and champions residents' right to be heard on Planning matters. As well as condemning decisions being taken behind closed doors, and the Tories' hoarding reserves at the expense of improving local services, his priorities include:
- fresh thinking to tackle the acute housing shortage - particularly the unaffordability for local young people and growing families
- demanding that residents and your Councillors are part of finding the right solutions to the City's worsening traffic problems.
- no more over-development without absolute guarantees that the needed infrastructure will be there to support it.
