Your Brighton Hill Councillors
Brighton Hill is represented by four councillors at the Basingstoke and Deane Council. Two for Brighton Hill South, and two for Brighton Hill North.
At the moment three out of Brighton Hill’s four councillors are Labour Councillors – and we are a very, very hard-working and dedicated bunch, as those of you who have been helped by the team will know.
Your Labour Councillor team for Brighton hill are Kim Taylor, Andrew McCormick and Mark Taylor.
We hope this blog will help keep you in touch with local events and the work of your Labour Councillors.

We want to read your views and opinions because by telling us what you think is important, you will be helping to make sure that we as your local Labour representatives are speaking up and campaigning on the right issues.

We Pledge to you
To fight to save local bus services and the free bus pass for the OAP’s and disabled. we’ll oppose the Conservative cuts to the Brighton Hill’s bus service.
We will campaign for more police on the beat. With 1000 less Hampshire police officers, tackling local crime and antisocial behaviour will be impossible. We want to see more police not less.
We want to see more investment in parking solutions and an end to the pothole epidemic in our roads.
We will oppose the Tory tip tax, charging to use the Wade Road tip will increase local fly tipping.
We will defend our sports pitches, parks and play areas from neglect and development. Our children need safe spaces to play in and our green spaces improve air quality and the environment.
We will fight for the Ice RInk, keeping ice and the Bisons in Basingstoke is important to us all.
We will campaign for regulation of local landlords. High rents and badly maintained properties are not good for tenants or their neighbours.
We will defend the Brighton Hill District Centre and support our local shops and small businesses.
