Surgeries

I am always happy to meet with constituents to discuss issues and assist with problems where I am able. Given the geographical area covered by the constituency it is not possible to hold regular surgeries that are convenient for everyone wanting a face-to-face meeting. Therefore I operate a triage system on first contact to see if we can help with issues by phone or email. We find that a large number of problems can be dealt with quickly and efficiently in this way.

Where a face to face meeting is necessary we will try to arrange them in clusters in an location as convenient as possible for those waiting at the time. In this way we hope that no one has to travel too far. This may mean that there is a wait for an appointment. 

To discuss an issue please call my constituency line – 01491 613072.

Please note that with regard to issues that fall under the remit of a local authority I have no power to compel local authorities to act or change any decisions. However, I am always happy to formally pass on concerns that are raised with me.
