    PAUL MEAKIN & CAROLE RIDOUT are the two LibDem Candidates standing in the new 2-seat District Council ward of UCKFIELD NEW TOWN

    Uckfield New Town's Paul Meakin has earned a reputation for not only listening to residents' views, but for actively supporting them by working hard and getting things done. With experience both as a current Uckfield Town Councillor and as a former District Councillor, Paul is passionate about conservation and protecting the natural environment. He is also sympathetic to those who have become disillusioned by politics in general. "With so much drama in the news, it's easy to understand if people are simply fed up with the endless arguing by today's politicians," says Paul. "And it is worrying when no prominence is given to local issues that are real concerns for us all, including illegal and inconsiderate parking, unreliable waste collection, housing and over-development, pressure on local services, traffic congestion, pollution, public safety and policing, to name just a few."
