I am honoured and delighted to have been re-elected in 2015 to serve as one of the Borough Councillors, not only in the beautiful Saxon Shore Ward, but also as a member of the Conservative led administration at Ashford Borough Council.
As a person who was born and brought up in a rural part of the Borough, I am passionate about working to protect the characteristics of the rural setting and ensuring inappropriate development is discouraged, so that there continues to be a clear distinction between rural and urban life, protecting the best that both have to offer.
I live close to Chilham, part of the Downs North Ward, and am enjoying being back at home after a number of years living abroad, with walking, cooking and squash, my favourite past-times.
I will continue in this term, to work hard to represent resident’s views at Council on a number of important issues. Planning, Highways issues, gypsy sites, new development and speeding are just some of the issues I work for on your behalf.
I can always be contacted personally via telephone: 07583 642202, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, on my Councillor blog: http://janemartin.yourcllr.com, Facebook: @cllrjanema.martin, or on Twitter:@CllrJaneMartin
