HI, I'm Stephen Rushworth, and I live between Egloshayle and Sladesbridge with my wife Claire, a Wadebridge girl born and bred. I have lived and worked in and around Wadebridge for 50 years and am committed to the sustainable future of the area.
I am the only candidate with prior experience as a Cornwall councillor. Having been on the Cabinet in the previous council I am very experienced at County Hall.
Wadebridge is a very special place to live but in the next 17 years it will come under immense pressure from large housing numbers being proposed in the Local Plan.
If elected I will ensure that any development is suitably placed protecting existing residential amenity, transport links within the town, and the rural areas in the outlying parishes.
Wadebridge East needs a strong voice to protect against inappropriate development, one that my combined role with Scott Mann and the supportive Cornwall Conservative Party will be able to offer.
Local people cannot afford to buy homes not only because house prices are too high but also because wages are too low, and we must address the issues together.
Should you do me the honour of electing me for the Wadebridge East division, I will be dedicated to serving you all. I promise to listen, to work hard and to represent you in every way.
