At the next General Election, I will be standing as a candidate for the new constituency of Honiton & Sidmouth.
Home is where the heart is and I am proud to be a candidate standing in Honiton & Sidmouth who is lucky enough to live in the new constituency. I have a proven track record of delivering action, not just words.
Since I was elected in 2019, I have successfully secured a new school to replace Tipton St John Primary, £15.7m from the Levelling Up Fund, a new police station for Exmouth, and the planned reopening of Honiton’s police enquiry desk, and a confirmed banking hub for Sidmouth. Following my recent debate in Parliament on South West Water's poor performance, over £35 million of investment was announced for Sidmouth, Tipton St John & Axminster to clean up our rivers and coastline.
I have set up a dedicated local office that is open to the public and have held surgeries across the constituency, making it easier for residents to speak to me for advice and help. I have continued to meet residents in our towns and villages over the last few months and I won’t be taking any vote for granted.
I have been out on the doorsteps speaking to residents already and look forward to getting back out in the coming days, weeks and months.
Why the new constituency?
Honiton & Sidmouth is one of the new constituencies that will replace East Devon at the next general election, following a review by the Independent Boundary Commission for England. Members of Parliament continue to serve their current constituencies until the next election.
