Graham Burr - Chairman

email: gjburr55@gmail.com

tel:0798 635 3493

Address: Fernside, Park Lane, Reigate, RH2 8JX

 

My wife and I moved out to Reigate and Banstead some 30 years ago, attracted by the country feel and great access to London. Two children (and just recently one Grandchild) on we still see is one of the most beautiful places to live and are passionate about preserving and enhancing it for future generations. Having spent most of my life working in Business across Europe I see Brexit as a self- inflicted wound, and joined the Lib Dems to help fight it and to address some of the underlying causes. Outside politics I am a keen but ageing tennis player and enthusiastic traveller. My three top priorities for the area are - Affordable housing without destroying the fantastic inherited amenity: we need meaningful targets for all developments to allow the younger generation to be able to afford to live here - Properly Funded Education: we should not be forcing headteachers to make difficult trade-offs that damage the delivery of a first-class education - Integrated and reliable Transport: holding Southern rail to account while looking at ways of increasing the role of public transport
