Kent County Council Dartford

Kent County Council Dartford

The Kent County Elections in Dartford are occurring in May 2013 and current councillor Avtar Sandhu MBE is hoping to gain another four years in order to help the residents of Dartford North East even more.

Avtar received around 40,000GBP of funding to use throughout his four years and has managed to give part to local organisations that have benefitted greatly from the funding. As well as this, Councillor Sandhu has spent parts of his funding on traffic calming methods such as road humps and signage in residential areas with warnings. Avtar has done much work on the resurfacing of roads in the Dartford North East area including Mount Pleasant Rd.

Avtar has supported many local occasions and events such as the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in Temple Hill and the 'Walking Bus' which encourages young children to walk to school. Councillor Sandhu has shown Dartford to the likes of the leader of Kent County Council and the High Sheriff of Kent.

Unfortunately Avtar did not get re-elected and is now only part of Dartford Borough Council.

Visit to The Parents Consortium

Visit to The Parents Consortium

Councillor Sandhu visited The Parents Consortium in Hextable on Friday 22nd March 2013 to have a tour of the fantastic facilities. The charity – funded through grants from organisation such as the Kent County Council – gives thousands of parents and siblings a short rest bite from what can be a constant cycle of care. Looking after a disabled child can be very tiring and parents do not get much time to take part in ordinary day to day activities. However the Parents Consortium have amazing facilities to look after the children in the form of specially made showers and lift and great quality care which gives the parents the chance to take a rest bite in the routine.

Visit To Long Reach Sewage Works

Councillor Avtar Sandhu, along with other Dartford Borough Council and Kent County Council members visited the Long Reach Sewage Works on the 15th March 2013 to have a tour of the plant and of the �40 million upgrade to the site which reduces odour and improves the quality of water returned to the Thames. This water, on average, goes through a 4 day cleansing programme including the removal of all of the waste, chemicals and gravel.

Dartford Road Cleaning

Dartford Road Cleaning

To increase the appeal of the streets in Dartford and the increase visibility for all of the residents, Nights Manner, St Vincents Avenue and Mallard Close have all undergone a clear up. The roads have had their overgrowing vegetation cut to ensure each road looks great and the visibility is increased for everyone.

Whilst this has already undergone, Councillor Sandhu has promoted a scheme to undertake footway surfacing at the junction with Great Queen Street outside of Pizza Go Go. Works are programmed to commence on 17 March for a period of one day. Working hours will be from 9.30am and be completed by 3.30pm. The proposed works will provide a uniform surface and prolong the life of the footway whilst enhancing the overall aesthetics of the area

Patient Participation Group Dartford

Patient Participation Group Dartford

The Dartford East Health Centre is a four-doctor practise, which is also shared with another practise. The centre prides themselves on their high standard of treatment and quality of care to their patients. The surgery is a mix of youthfulness and experience which allows them to give confidant and energetic care. The centre works closely with a range of medical professionals throughout the area to provide care in the community for our patients.

The Dartford East Health Centre puts on a Patient Participation Group to allow their patients and the community can talk their concerns and questions to surgery staff and councillor of the local area. A new member of the Patient Participation Group is Dartford Borough Councillor Avtar Sandhu who wants to help the patients and community by giving his advice and answers to the residents of Dartford North East.

The first date set for Avtar to be present at the participation group is Tuesday 26th February 2013. Further dates to follow.

Temple Hill Dispersal Area

Temple Hill Dispersal Area

Since being ratified by Dartford Borough Council on the 24th of January 2013, between the dates of 31st of January to the 30th of April, a Dispersal Area will be put in place in the Temple Hill Area of Dartford. This order was commissioned by Dartford Council and Kent Police and is under the power of the Anti Social Behaviour Act 2003. This is due to the increase in anti-social behaviour, with 80 calls in the last 3 months as well as an increase in shop lifting.

The programme gives the police better powers to deal with anti-social behaviour in the area. The order means that any group of 4 or more people found causing or likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress can be dispersed by a uniformed officer. Also stated in the order, young people unaccompanied by a responsible adult between 9pm and 6am in the three month period can be taken home or if they do not follow the procedure can be sent to jail for 3 months.

‘The Dispersal Area will be a great addition and will help ensure the Temple Hill area will remain trouble free. Much like any other part of the UK, there are always those residents who are more passionate about the area they live in than others. Temple Hill and its residents will, I am sure, be a role model to other such areas across the UK. As the councilor for the area and having met various communities and projects of all ages, I am extremely passionate about enhancing the living and working community within my area.’ Avtar Sandhu

Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

During the Diamond Jubilee on the 24rd of June 2012, the residents of Dartford came together at Diamond Jubilee Temple Hill Temple hill Primary School to commemorate the glorious occasion. The residents were in for a full fun day of activities for everyone of all ages including live music and entertainment, interactive sports sessions, food and refreshments as well as raffles and giveaways. Those who attended were encouraged to wear blue white and red in celebration of the Union Jack and our Queen.

Cllr. Sandhu was one of the faces at the event and believed that it was imperative that the community came together as a unit to commemorate such a glorious occasion.
