COLIN BILLANY has published his election statement on the Hedon Blog.
Mr Billany has rejected the notion that there is a place for national politics on Hedon Town Council. “I will stand for the everyday person, no matter what political views they have.” He says he will remain “independent from national policies that may cloud local issues.”
On last year’s resignations from the council, he says: “One of my aims is to bring the Town Council back to the community by making it more accessible. After last years infighting people see the council as a group of people looking after their interest and not the community of Hedon.”
On the development of new housing in the town: “Protect the important green areas from being developed in the future, if possible working with housing developers to find land to build new properties within Hedon’s town boundaries.”
Mr Billany is the second of the candidates to bring the Alexandra Hall into the election debate: “Using Alexandra Hall better and making it the community hall it was built for, by allowing all members of the community to use the hall for functions, events and meetings of clubs of all ages.”
But he is the first of the candidates to refer to Hull and its City of Culture celebrations and its potential for Hedon: “Promote the history of Hedon to a wider audience especially now that Hull will be the City of Culture in 2017.”
