Zoe was drawn into local politics when defending our open spaces. She successfully opposed building plans at the edge of Lodge Lake and provided evidence and spoke out for the establishment of a permanent village green in Great Holm.

Additionally, as a past experienced Milton Keynes City Councillor she is able to work effectively between the Parish and Milton Keynes City Council to get the best for our residents. She is keen to engage all residents in the politics of local issues so their views are always taken into account. She led the campaign to stop the closure of Great Holm Fire Station and has been active in the successful refurbishment of many of the playparks in our area, and worked to ensure they were all grant funded rather than totally funded by the Parish Council.

Zoe is excited to be your Councillor in the area she lives and loves and welcomes contact and feedback about your concerns and what you want to see the Parish Council working on in the future.
