Claire has lived in Cirencester since she was 15 after moving from Nottinghamshire. She lives with her husband Jethro and has raised her four children here.
She is self-employed and became a Cirencester Town Councillor for New Mills Ward in 2017. Following that she was elected to Cotswold District Council and is the Cabinet Member for the Cost of Living Crisis.
Her priorities for New Mills Ward are:
Upgrading the Tesco roundabout
The roundabout is dangerous to pull out onto, Claire is pleased that some changes have been promised but will campaign to make sure these happen ASAP.
Better bus services
Conservative Party cuts have decimated public transport in our area making it hard for elderly and young people to get around. Claire wants the District Council to start supporting local bus services.
The Steadings Development (previously 'Chesterton')
This 2,500-house development will have a long-term significant impact on Cirencester. Claire has had many conversations with those who objected to the development and has brought those objections into the process to ensure the best possible outcome as the development progresses.
