Robert has lived in Swanley since 1972 and on White Oak since 1981, and is in touch with the needs and aspirations of the people who live here through daily contact when walking around his ward.
Robert has been defending the Green Belt in Swanley since 1999. He helped win the local community campaign to save the farmland behind Archer Way and is now fighting to protect the Birchwood school site, which Labour have proposed for a housing development.
Robert wants to see the Birchwood site re-opened for Swanley pupils, as Kent County Council says we will be short of many thousands of places for years to come if we do not build more schools.
Robert is an experienced Councillor and knows how to get things done. He served from 1999-2015 and was Leader of the Town Council in 2009/10.
Robert wants to restore Tory-run Swanley Town Council to its former glory, and is the only candidate asking where all the missing council revenue has gone. He wants to save the Olympic from being sold off like the Woodlands for housing, and for local people to have a full say in all future plans for the town, not being imposed from Conservatives in Sevenoaks, as with the ‘Mega Plan’.
Robert wants to restore Swanley Park and have the sports pitches in the park completed for local matches to take place.
Robert has opposed the 2017 Council Tax hikes supported by Labour and the Tories, which will hit the poorest pockets hardest.
Robert has always fought for the local environment. He pioneered the use of biodiesel in Town Council vehicles and the installation of solar panels on public buildings. He is now fighting to save ancient trees at the Woodlands through protection orders.
There was just ONE vote between Robert and the Tory candidate at the last White Oak by-election in October. Labour were in third place behind the Lib Dems.
Please vote for ROBERT WOODBRIDGE on Thursday March 2nd, and elect a Strong, Experienced and Vocal Voice for White Oak ward, who won’t be afraid to challenge authority on your behalf.
Polling stations will be open at the White Oak Bowls Centre in Garrolds Close, and the Drill Hall at the top of Swanley Lane, between 7am and 10pm.
