Phil Hammond

District Councillor for Fetcham

Philip shares concerns about river pollution and climate change, and lists these personal goals:

• Enhancing access to job skills learning for young people and people returning to work. Mole Valley lacks colleges and transport options. Radical improvements are required to provide technical training and work skills for people enabling them to gain better jobs, stay in our communities and improve the economy.

• Prioritising community built affordable homes. Over 80% of new homes in this country are built by PLC builders. Neither developers nor Governments deliver local needs. Mole Valley has virtually no truly affordable new homes. We need a radical long-term plan to exploit existing Government legislation.

• Accelerating the energy performance improvements of existing homes. Existing homes produce 14% of UK emissions (Climate Change Committee). Improvements are complex and expensive. Homeowners need signposting to a supervised local network of trusted specialist installers.

• Arguing for cycling safety. Surrey County Council must expand safer cycling routes. Fetcham has only a few yards (0.2 km SCC cycle facilities map) of roadside cycle route. There is no worthwhile protection for school children and commuters. People must feel safe before they'll cycle more. Designated routes must connect our stations and schools.

• Supporting community well-being through integration. Medical services through GPs aren't the whole answer for dementia, mental health, addiction, disabilities, long-term illness, elderly care, and children with special needs. Even more can be gained by linking GPs, other public care providers, carers, churches, voluntary and hobby groups and target grant funding.
