It has never been more important to stand up for the local NHS. As your local MP, Martin campaigned tirelessly for free, local health services.
Martin has never believed that the best way to help the homeless or make homes affordable was to build all over the countryside. So he has always strongly supported campaigns to protect treasured green spaces around Cheltenham.
In opposition he developed a policy for the Liberal Democrats which was then implemented by the coalition government as the Local Green Space designation. It provides protection for local green spaces not for their landscape value or scientific importance but simply because they are important to local people - providing free recreation and quiet enjoyment, growing local food, improving physical and mental health and absorbing both CO2 and dangerous particulate pollution.
