Rachael Quinn is the Labour councillor for Barms Ward. Currently employed as a teacher, Rachael studied at both Leicester and Liverpool Universities.
Currently living on Nunsfield Road in Buxton, Rachael’s main local concerns are:
Like all people living in the Fairfield Road area I am concerned about transport and traffic issues. The heavy lorries and the volume of traffic on our roads is making many people’s lives really difficult. I want to make sure that any new relief road will help to solve the traffic problems and not just make it worse by putting more traffic on the road. I also really want to see improved public transport, trains and buses, that will enable people to travel to work and other activities cheaply and easily. Our rail service needs to be cheaper and better, and I hope that a Labour council will work really hard to achieve this.
I know that the bus services have been cut, this has an impact on people who need to travel to work and to appointments and social activities in Buxton and further afield, again I would like to see a Labour council pushing for more services where people need them.
Like many residents I am concerned about the quality of life on Fairfield Road, I hope that a sensible traffic policy might help to improve the situation but a future Labour council will work enthusiastically with local groups to improve the appearance and the services for residents in this area, Bringing together the transport issue again, I am working really hard to get the bus shelter near St Peter’s either repaired or replaced to provide seating and a more pleasant environment to wait for buses in.
In addition to this I am always here to listen to residents about concerns, let me know how I can help, recent issues include, concerns over the Network Rail work on Hogshaw and the constant problems of dog fouling and litter, but there are many other concerns where I can put your concerns forward.
