ALEXANDRA WARD AND ST HELEN'S DIVISION (WHICH INCLUDES PART OF HOLYWELLS WARD) -PLEASE VOTE FOR SACHIN KARALE AND YOUR TWO CONSERVATIVE BOROUGH CANDIDATES IF YOU LIVE IN THE HOLYWELLS SECTION.
Dr Sachin Karale has a research and business background and has been living and working in Ipswich for the last 16 years. He owns businesses in Ipswich town and has close connections with local businesses and residents in the area. From his conversations with Ipswich residents over the years, he knows the issues they want tackled: traffic, the frequent floods, drugs and crime around the town centre. He believes in taking a practical, energetic and positive approach to problem solving and is up for the challenge to work on fixing these persistent problems for residents and local businesses.
Ipswich town centre has declined substantially over the past decade and Dr Karale wants to work collaboratively with stakeholders on innovative solutions and to bring in new businesses, creating a wider range of employment opportunities in town. He always wants to hear the views of residents and is standing as a Conservative Councillor to help deliver a better future for Ipswich and is contesting Alexandra Ward for Ipswich Borough Council and St Helens Division for Suffolk County Council.
Your current Labour councillor is keen to have residential roads closed off in the Foxhall Road area. Residents in some roads may welcome this but people in other roads have told us that the inconvenience caused by this would be unacceptable, so if I am elected, I will work WITH residents in specific roads for acceptable solutions.
When traffic gets back to normal post-Covid, congestion on our main through roads will increase again especially in the St Helen’s Street, Bishops Hill and Duke Street areas, so if you elect me, I will be pushing for a comprehensive review of traffic measures to improve traffic flow and reduce pollution levels, whilst encouraging more walking and cycling.
