Low Council Tax - Better Services - Value for Money


David Carr

In May 2007, and again in 2011, residents in Rainham elected Conservative Cllr David Carr to represent the ward of Rainham North.

This is my web site, keeping you up to date on what I'm doing to help improve the area and represent you on Medway Council.

On this site you can find out how to contact your local councillor by telephone or e-mail, alternatively we hold regular surgeries on the first Saturday of each month at the Rainham Contact Centre at the top of Station Road Rainham from 0915 to 1230. There's information on the local campaigns we're fighting and how you can get involved and regular updates on the issues that matter to you.

We are determined to make a real difference to Rainham.

Bakersfield planning application

News posted on Wednesday, 16 July 2014

The Planning Committee heard the application from Anna Bloomfield tonight which was refused unanimously by all members of the committee. Our piece of natural green amenity land has another lease of life - just as it has had 15 times over the past 40 years with various applications. This area is one of the most hotly contested in Kent - indeed the whole of the South East. I am committed to keeping this land free of developers plans and to maintaining the breathing space between the urban areas and the river and marshland to the north. Another victory for common sense and the people of Rainham North.

Mackland's PACT Summer Fete

News posted on Tuesday, 15 July 2014

Another hugely successful day at Mackland's PACt Summer Fete. I'm with Trevor Lloyd - the Chairmen - and the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress, Cllr Ray Maisey and his wife Mrs Buffy Maisey. This was really a day for the children - where face painting, fancy dress and many side shows to entertain them were on the go all day. They all received a bag of sweets and a certificate to mark the event. I believe the PACT raised around £150 for charity...a really worthwhile event and very well done too.

Residents in Parkway Road will be pleased to note that the pavements from Childscroft Road to Streetfield Road will be reconstructed from 20 July. The work will take approximately 20 days and only during normal working hours. This is another long standing project I have been seeking, where perseverance finally comes through.
