Vote Antreev Dhillon for Colnbrook with Poyle
In These Difficult Times, Colnbrook Needs A Fresh Face!
Antreev Dhillon lives in Slough and has just finished her final exams in International Business Management at university. A community activist, she helped set up a London-based dance group which she hopes to bring to Slough to bring fun and fitness to the town.
She has spoken to hundreds of Colnbrook residents during the past few months and, if elected, will work with fellow Labour councillor James Walsh to continue to make the village’s voice heard in Slough Town Hall.
Since 2008, the Labour-run council has introduced the red bin recycling scheme – which has seen a huge increase in recycling across Slough and in Colnbrook – and community wardens, including Linda Corcoran in Colnbrook.
In addition, Cllr Walsh led the way in getting a Children’s Centre and library in Colnbrook, both of which will open this summer. If elected on May 5, Antreev will join Cllr Walsh in making sure that Colnbrook continues to receive services neglected by the previous Lib Dem/Conservative-run council.
Antreev has a strong interest in fitness and will work to ensure that pensioners and children can continue to swim for free at Langley Leisure Cenre, despite the £25million cuts imposed on the council by the Conservative/Lib Dem coalition.
She also believes that, at a time when the Coalition is imposing severe austerity measures from Westminster, local Conservatives and Liberals do not wreck Slough’s finances again. During their period running the Town Hall (2004-08), the coalition’s slipshod and uncosted actions meant that the borough’s reserves were raided, programmes such as the refurbishment of flats in nearby Langley massively overspent by millions and council tax increase by 5% EVERY YEAR.
If elected Antreev will:
- Ensure that front-line services for Colnbrook residents are protected from Conservative cuts
- Ensure that new services, like the library and Sure Start Centre in Vicarage Way, are introduced in the village
- Ensure that all policies are costed and manifesto pledges made to Colnbrook residents are kept
- Ensure that the playground at the Westfield Hall in Severn Crescent is refurbished and brought up to standard
- Ensure that residents’ opposition to the SIFE freight exchange is heard in the Town Hall – and that action is taken before irreparable environmental damage is caused
Labour’s Antreev Dhillon says NO to SIFE!
Labour campaigner Antreev Dhillon and your Labour Cllr James Walsh are fighting a developer proposal to build a freight exchange by J5 of the M4 at Colnbrook.
These plans would give Colnbrook a lorry terminus with no local benefit from freight moving onto the railway.
Nonetheless the Tories seem determined to force these plans on Colnbrook. Their Secretary of State Eric Pickles said in a written report:
“If an application were to be made … at Colnbrook of about the size indicated … then harm to the green belt might be significantly less than by [the other] proposals”.
