Councillor Caroline Cornell
I have lived locally for many years and my son grew up and was educated here. As a lifelong passionate Conservative, I believe I could represent Buckingham West Ward with diligence, integrity and complete commitment. I love Buckinghamshire and recognize the importance of maintaining its’ unique environment whilst also ensuring local services support our community in the best and most efficient way possible.
I have a wealth of business experience both in the public and private sectors.
I would regard it an honour to represent you.

Councillor Patrick Fealey
I was first elected in 2011 to AVDC. I have lived in North Bucks with my wife Lindsey since 1986 and have raised our family here. Additionally, I have been a Parish Councillor in Gawcott. I have always been passionate about and active within the local community, as a director of Buckingham Youth Club, a director of Campfire Education Trust responsible for Lace Hill, Bourton Meadow and George Grenville Schools and a trustee both for the Buckingham & Gawcott Charity and Buckingham Alms Houses and Welfare Charity. In recent times I have been totally opposed to HS2 and Expressway projects but support the East/West Rail link.

Your Priority is our Priority
We will make it our priority is to protect our cherished countryside and daily village life. That’s why we’re committed to:
Championing our environment
We care about our countryside, wildlife and preserving our villages. We will ensure the new council has ambitious biodiversity and carbon reduction targets. With HS2 and other developments, such as the proposed mega-prison at Springhill and Grendon,. our countryside simply cannot sustain vast scale infrastructure programmes.
Local Plans are already ambitious. But because of pressure on natural resources, public services and local infrastructure, we refuse to take more than our fair share. We will push back on accelerated growth that is not included in our local plans.
Improving our roads
An additional £5 million has been allocated by the Conservative-led council to sort out potholes across the county and what’s more the Conservative council is doubling the budget to clear gullies to help prevent excess water on our roads. Rural roads have taken a beating this winter and we’ll petition directly on your behalf to ensure extra funding is spent here.
Opposing the Expressway and mitigating HS2
We will join together with our local MPs and community organisations, to ensure your voice is heard as we vigorously oppose the Expressway and HS2.
