Deputy Robert Duhamel (53)
Improving local neighbourhoods and ensuring that residents have a voice in directing the future planning of their district and their choice of amenity provision.

Road crossing, greater police presence, youth facilities, parking for residents and people working in the area. The residents of Petit Longueville have expressed a requirement for safe road crossings on Route de Longueville and Rue des Prés. These major roads are frequently used by children and older people and accidents have already occurred. Recent burglaries and occasional outbursts of unruly behaviour have created a demand for a greater police presence. There are few recreational facilities for young people and families with children on this side of the Island. I want to see Fort Regent revamped through private enterprise.

Occupation: Project support co-ordinator.

Tony Nightingale (58)
Longueville Road, requirement of pedestrian crossing at Miladi Farm shops. The speed of traffic on the same road. Speed bumps in certain areas being used as rat runs. States overspending, the ‘prudent housekeeping’ housewife is not impressed with the carefree attitude on spending ‘à la Bel Royal’ etc. The Dicq area very concerned at the incinerator smells and particles being blown their way. Immigration and over-building on green field sites, especially in St Saviour, where traffic congestion will be an even greater problem.
Address: 4 Welton Farm, Prince's Tower Road, St Saviour.
Occupation: Company director.
Proposers: Alan Guy, Imogen Nicholls, Isabella Lewis, Doreen Taylor, Nicholas Pitman, John de Gruchy, Sue Black, Colin Brown, John Wood, James Crosbie.
Deputy Celia Scott Warren (57)
I look forward to supporting improved community amenities for all age groups. Road safety issues are important, including restarting negotiations for the Longueville Road/ Miladi Parade pedestrian facility. I would continue my work on the Safer Routes to School group. Traffic and parking are major concerns. I support more residents’ associations. Future housing consents should not be on green field sites. I am on the Committee of La Cloche, our parish magazine, and I also support our twinning with Villedieu les Poêles, and working with France where possible.
