All the hard work from the Wealden Green Party team paid off and Hartfield ward has turned Green. Rachel Millward, a local resident and environmental campaigner, will now join Cllr. Keith Obbard and Cllr. Patricia Vanegas-Patterson in representing local people on Wealden District Council. Rachel was elected with 56% of the vote.
“We live in one of England’s finest landscapes, but our green spaces are threatened by unnecessary and badly planned building developments. I will do all I can to speak up for our communities and to preserve the beauty of this land for future generations.”
Rachel’s top three priorities are:
- Stop building on the AONB
- No more sewage in the river Medway
- Protect the Ashdown Forest now
