Hello there,

I only just found out that you tried to contact the Labour Party regarding your 'Save our Open Spaces' campaign. I apologise for such a late reply. I want you to know that I fully support your campaign. I fully support the ethos of your campaign (indeed I used to volunteer for Friends of the Earth a while ago) and I fully support green issues more generally.

Although housing, and the need to provide more affordable homes, is a pressing issue in Guildford and Surrey, I take the position that new housing developments should not be squeezed into an already densely populated area, which lacks green spaces for local residents to enjoy. As such I believe that the Aldershot Road allotments site should be kept in place.

As your councillor I will endeavor to do all I can on your behalf. I look forward to working with you in the near future.

Kind regards,

Cllr Christian Gilliam
