a note from Tom...
This a place for me to share with you the work that I've been doing, both in our community and in Parliament.
Tonbridge and Malling is a beautiful part of Kent, rich in history and natural beauty, and I am incredibly proud to represent the people who live here.
As your MP, I have fought for you on issues that affect our community, including reducing aircraft noise, improving our train services, and boosting broadband and mobile phone signal in rural areas.
In Parliament, my role is to represent you and your views. As a Conservative, I work with the government to raise issues that matter to us, in Tonbridge and Malling, and since July 2017, I was elected by Parliament to chair the Foreign Affairs Committee.
I value the fact that I am able to have an open conversation with my constituents, so please do reach out and contact me if you have any questions or issues that you’d like my assistance with. I am always here to help you.
What's happening in Tonbridge and Malling?
meeting with chris grayling to discuss m26
I met with the Transport Secretary to make it clear what a bad and unworkable idea closing the M26 to store HGVs is. They apologised for not consulting with the local community. Thankfully, the Transport Secretary agreed that other options were preferable and he would like to pursue these before the M26 was considered.
TONBRIDGE AND MALLING LOCAL PLAN
Until Monday 12 November, everyone who lives in Tonbridge and Malling borough has the chance to have their say on what is probably the most important council consultation in years, the draft Local Plan. Whether you agree with the proposals or not, now is our chance to make our voice heard.
Handing in ryarsh petition
It’s almost unprecedented to have around 3,500 residents unite against a proposal which would significantly affect the community. I’m pleased that so many people made their views heard, and am grateful to everyone who helped achieve signatures. It was an honour to present the petition on behalf of the community to the House of Commons last night.
