WARRINGTON and Halton Green Party Leader, Lyndsay McAteer is hoping to become a new voice for Stockton Heath by standing as a Borough Councillor at the local elections on May 6.
Lyndsay has been hard at work campaigning on local issues for the past three years.
Before the pandemic, she was volunteering at a lunch club for elderly people in the Village.
Lyndsay has been a strong advocate for keeping the Community Recycling Centre open on Sandy Lane. Whilst the Borough Council stalled and prevaricated over the issue, Lyndsay kept the pressure on through consistent media work.
Lyndsay wants to see the current local plan for Warrington put into a dustbin. The Green Party are calling for a plan which protects the green belt and which is drawn up by the people in the communities that it affects. A neighbourhood development plan is a plan that would work for everyone, not just the developers and the building contractors.
Lyndsay also wants to see significant changes to the transport system in Stockton Heath.
She has worked on road safety issues on behalf of residents and would like to see an active transport plan which gives greater priority to walking and cycling.
The upcoming election will give people a chance to vote for a Green voice at the Council table. This will be a voice that is not forced to vote a particular way by a political party.
Lyndsay said: “I will always act in the interests of the people who live in Stockton Heath. Voting Green on 6 May is voting for a fairer future and a kinder world!”
