Councillor Carol O’Neal
Councillor for Eastbrook ward, Adur District Council
Carol has lived in Southwick for twenty years and in Sussex for almost forty years. She has had a long and varied career working in business, finance, health and education. She is an active supporter and campaigner for many local community projects but believes that these must not take the place of the statutory services that are essential to maintain our way of life.
“Eastbrook residents are entitled to question Adur District Council’s stewardship of these services, to demand their fair share of council resources, and to expect that people who rely on them for vital support are protected from the ravages of local government cuts.
“The sub-standard condition of much of the council’s housing stock, the continued privatisation of community amenities, the outsourcing of all manner of services from refuse collection to pest control, the failure to make adequate provision for a carbon-neutral future. These are issues upon which I will fight to make our local area a better place to live and work.”
