Profile:

Kathy Jones has run the Toycupboard, Beach and Gift shop for over 20 years.

Kathy is in a prime position to hear the views of our residents and visitors, she is always approachable and is keen on holding surgeries.

Kathy has concerns regarding the quantity of housing now going in to Highbridge and the surrounding areas, and is concerned the infrastructure to go with these need to come quicker.

She said: “I will make sure the developers deliver the new school planned for Brue farm on date, and I will not let the timescales dwindle.

"I also agree with most people that we have enough flats and poor quality housing. I want to see better quality homes.

"I have been in retail most of my life and the decline in High Street shops is saddening. I will do my best to encourage quality shops to come to our town and put Highbridge back on the map as a retail area.

"I support the Isleport 2 development and again I will do what I can to bring businesses to Highbridge so as to give local jobs to local people.

"I would like to see more action taken over dog fouling and littering, I will push for the dog warden to attend the area more often and I will push for extra street cleaning.

"If elected I will have regular meetings with our local police officers and raise the issues are residents are concerned about."
