Name: Hazel Thorpe
Candidate for: Worthing West
Party: Liberal Democrat
Why I want to be an MP: We are now more conscious of the impact of our actions upon the natural environment and habitats and rightly so.
I would want to be more creative and work to significantly reduce the toll on the roads around Worthing.
Locally, we have been working tirelessly for better bus services, a park-and-ride and a better rail service with working toilets on the local trains.
In the bigger picture, Liberal Democrats would move freight on to rail to avoid congestion on our major roads and thereby reduce the need for constant maintenance.
Potholes and roadworks cause such personal and economic misery that I would seek to make this a high priority.
As MP I would want to work closely with Worthing Borough Council to implement a fairer and more cooperative system of parking, one which supports the town, businesses and the shops.
Such a system already exists in Horsham.
Rustington also is flourishing because it has three hours’ free parking, supported by local enterprises.
I would lobby for money from profits (from on-street parking) to be put back into Worthing budgets so either the council tax is lower or facilities and attractions such as a children’s playground or a roller skating rink are provided.
