Church Ward - Peter Boardley
Peter Boardley is a grandfather and long-standing campaigner in Reading. A passionate community activist, Peter is a keen environmentalist; his priorities are protecting our green spaces, improving our transport and listening to residents' concerns. If elected, his priorities are getting a fair deal for Church Ward residents and services, building the affordable housing we need, where we need it, and protecting our green spaces and woodlands from further development.
In Peter's own words:
I have been resident in Reading for 45 years and have watched it grow with many developments, some of which are unsightly and ill- conceived. Local planning needs much more consideration. Our environment is in crisis and I would support any local efforts to reduce our energy consumption such as insulation consultation, at the very least. Whilst many of our minor roads are being dressed, some of our more important roads are still a severe hazard to cyclists. All of this requires better local consultations and plenty of listening.
