Swalecliffe: Ian Thomas

I live in Swalecliffe ward and my children grew up here. It is our home and I am as proud of and passionate about it as you are.

I have represented Chestfield and Swalecliffe for 17 years, fighting for improvements such as the skate park near Long Rock and flood prevention work at Swalecliffe Brook.

The ward is now split in two and I am delighted to have been elected to represent you in Swalecliffe ward. I will continue to work on your behalf, representing your views and campaigning on the issues that matter to you.

I will make sure our open spaces, including the Green Gap and Long Rock, are preserved and protected and that building plans are appropriate and sustainable.

I am always available to you so please do get in touch if you have a problem or concern.
