Mike Appleyard

Mike has lived in the area for 40 years and played a part in the Community for most of that time. He ran the admin side of Wooburn Wasps football club for young boys for 8 years, became a governor of Wye Valley school, was chairman of Claytons school followed by Meadows school over a period of 25 years. In 1981 he became Treasurer of Bourne End Junior Sports Club and took over as chairman, succeeding in reducing the debt by £25,000 in 5 years. He has been a member of the Community Association, a Parish councillor and its Chairman. He has been the local County Councillor for 28 years and District Councillor for 18 years, not only improving the area, but playing a senior role at both councils.

At County he has been Cabinet member for Schools, Health & Social Services, Economic Development and Scrutiny Chairman for Health. He is now Deputy Leader of the council. At the District Council he chairs the Audit Committee.

He is proud to have been able to help so many people over the years and get things done.

What Mike has done for the area

Locally, we are fighting large housing development, which threaten serious traffic congestion far worse than we see now. This is the biggest issue ever, for us all in Bourne End and Wooburn and the groups organising that fight deserve your full support. We already have serious parking issues to contend with and the District Council is proposing to unleash another 7-800 houses and 1600-2000 people with their vehicles on to our narrow roads. I have already spent much time researching and questioning the need for Slate Meadow to be developed, and why has the District Council focused on one village. Why is there no other area except Princes Risborough taking all this housing? I am determined to do all I can to support and act for you to resist these changes and have already spoken with senior people in government, including the Prime Minister.

The County Council has invested £110m into roads in the last six years, much more than the previous government did in 12 years, in order to bring our roads up to an acceptable standard. Road repairs require dry roads and recent years have been generally wet, which has not helped us achieve our aims. I have been able to resurface all the main through roads that needed attention, but now Marlow Road needs further work and so does Wakeman Road, both to be tackled in the next year or so. I have managed to get at least two minor roads done each year, and will continue to tackle the more worn out ones. I know that a large number of you will have been pleased that your road has finally been done. I am also now looking at the pavements and will be able to do one stretch each year into the future.

This is all happening despite the government reducing their grant to councils to zero next year. The County Council has saved over £100m over the last four years and has increased income by over £70m.

Barbara Gibbs

I am both delighted and honoured to have been selected the County Councillor in the Gerrards Cross division which includes Hedgerley and part of North Beaconsfield. For the last two years I have served on the SBDC as an active member of three Committees, Planning, Audit and Overview and Scrutiny where I have used my extensive experience to try to gain the best outcomes for local residents. I am very active in the local community where I am the Chairman of the Gerrards Cross Conservatives. I am a member of Misbourne Matins Rotary club where I serve as the Safeguarding officer. I am an enthusiastic member of Rotary and support many activities including helping at the Gerrards Cross Jumble sale. I am on the Governing body of Beaconsfield High School. I am interested in ensuring that the quality of life for residents is maintained and if possible enhanced. For this to happen, particularly when funding is tight, new solutions to existing problems need to be found. Continuing to build on the self confidence and therefore resilience of all is surely part of the way forward. I am a strong advocate for reevaluating existing practices, preserving what is effective but looking for fundamental change where appropriate.

Luisa Sullivan

The role of a county councillor is predominately that of a communicator. Being able to engage with all residents and community groups and balancing the needs and interests of residents, with council policy and its services, at all council tier levels.

I have been active in the community for many years, and have built solid relationships with many of our community groups. 

Over these last 25 years you’ve given me an insight and understanding of how our local community feels about their environment, its needs, its development and growth and aspirations for our younger generation.

There are many developments and projects happening in The Ivers. Alongside these, we need to plan for more community facilities, develop the road network and address the congestion problems.

We need to balance the need for housing, with affordable and cost saving initiatives like shared equity and self-build opportunities, alongside protecting our precious Green Belt and open spaces.

A tall order and this task requires your County Council representative to hold integrity, honesty and rational level thinking, to be an effective communicator, negotiator and team member, able to work with different local authority tiers and in partnership with other organisations to deliver positive outcomes for our community.

If you would like to speak to me or have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Philip Bastiman

I enjoy living in Beaconsfield, we share a beautiful town with a great heritage and quality of life. I am standing for the town council to help to preserve our environment and make Beaconsfield an even better place to live. I have a track record as a councillor in Wandsworth where I was responsible for introducing doorstep recycling, providing outstanding Social Services for vulnerable local people and delivering excellent value for money.

Ralph Bagge

I have lived in Stoke Poges since 1995, and both our children went to The Stoke Poges School, where my wife teaches music. I started taking an interest in local politics around the time of the Bells Hill redevelopment and was elected to Stoke Poges Parish Council in 2010, being elected Chairman the following year. I was elected to South Bucks District Council, representing Stoke Poges in 2011, where I became Chairman of the Planning Committee, and after re-election, in 2015 I became Leader of the Council, working regularly with County colleagues on issues including housing, health and the local economy. With my experience of local government, you can rely on me to represent your concerns effectively at County Hall.

I believe that South Bucks is a great place to live in – we have beautiful tree-lined roads and the openness of the Green Belt while enjoying the excellent road, rail and air access. I’m passionate about preserving our quality of life and ensuring that South Bucks remains a great place to live. I'm determined to see off the threat from Slough to build on our Green Belt and to preserve the semi-rural character of our quiet villages that we all enjoy so much.
