This letter is written with regard to the article relating to Lambs Farm Road in the September 19 Horsham edition of the County Times.
As most will know I am highly passionate about the area of North Horsham where I have lived for the last 22 years, North Horsham consists of the divisions/wards of Roffey and Holbrook; in hindsight in my exuberance to work for and represent my constituents my passion may have got the better of me.
I have apologised to the WSCC Cabinet Member for Highways for the wording I used in a recent NHPC meeting, but with that apology I did say I was not sorry for the sentiment that I expressed and I stand by that and this apology.
In future I will be as committed in my approach; I will continue to seek for the residents of Roffey and North Horsham the resources that I believe our area requires; I will just have to try and rein-back on the passion bit!
I still believe that there are a number of roads in Roffey in particular that have not had the appropriate level of investment awarded to them for a good number of years, and considering that they are arterial routes/bus routes are in a shocking state of repair.
Lastly, I trust with my enthusiasm I have not harmed Roffey’s future chances of that much overdue investment.
(Con) West Sussex county councillor for Roffey division and Horsham district councillor for Holbrook East, North Street, Horsham
