My name is David Lander; I’m a local resident and have lived in Wendover for 13 years. I’m passionate about our public services, the local area, our environment, protecting our countryside and ensuring access to our green spaces.
Over my career, I have worked in both Housing and Children’s services giving me valuable insight and the experience necessary to best serve local residents.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been working in the community as part of the Oxford University & Office of National Statistics Covid Infection Study. This has delivered essential insight into community transmission. As part of this work, I have seen first-hand the impact the pandemic has had on mental health, the pressure on public services and the damage sustained by local businesses.
I’m standing as Councillor for Wendover, Halton & Stoke Mandeville to be a strong voice for local residents, help rebuild and speak up on the issues that have a real and lasting impact on you and your family’s quality of life.
Over the next few years, we expect to see a massive increase in new housing in the surrounding areas. It’s essential that these new homes are well designed and that essential public services and infrastructure, such as public transport, are properly provided and funded to cope with the increasing population.
If elected, I will ensure that our Children and Elderly residents’ interests are placed higher on the Council’s agenda and that all Council activities have a sympathetic and positive impact on our environment.
