About Greg Collins – candidate for Horam and Punnetts Town ward

Dear Resident,

I live in Punnetts Town and it’s a wonderful place with great people. That’s why I’m active in many community groups, volunteering with Speedwatch groups, with County Lunches in Punnetts Town, for Sustrans on the Cuckoo Trail, and with Heathfield Runners. I’m also a charity trustee. As your Councillor I’ll work hard for everyone who lives here. 

Local people have been telling me how much they worry about how isolated many people have become, how hard it is to get about without a car, and how angry they are that beautiful trees are not protected.

We can make Wealden a better place to live for all of us.

I worked at a senior level in IT and Operations and was a director of a major global charity after working in the City. Most importantly I learned to listen well – it’s how we understand what the real problems are so we can find ways to fix them. And I confess I’m a workaholic.. I''work hard to change things for the better for all of us in Wealden. 

I’ll listen hard, find pragmatic solutions and make them happen.

I am standing with Cornelie Usborne in this two-councillor ward.

We are  both committed to standing up for the countryside and environment. We have been listening to people throughout this large rural ward. We’ve heard how worried people are about housing developments ruining our villages and destroying our green fields. We need housing that meets local needs, not executive homes. It must be well insulated and cheap to run. Planning decisions must ensure it’s easy for residents to reach schools, shops, doctors and community resources without using a car.

We’ll push hard for housing that is good for local people and our environment.

We will always stand up for residents first

As Green Councillors we won’t be told how to vote by our party – unlike others, we are fully independent and transparent. Our job is to speak up for the people we represent and you can trust us to do so without fear or favour.

If you vote for us your voice will be heard at Wealden District Council.

We are proud to have been selected to represent Horam & Punnetts Town in the elections on Thursday 4th May and hope you will put your trust in us. We won’t let you down.

Best wishes


PS Your vote really counts – if you vote for any other candidate here, the Conservatives are more likely to win these seats. With your support, Green can win in Horam and Punnetts Town! Thank you.
