Sian Wheal

I am standing in the elections because I am passionate about Wharfedale. My family has lived in Grassington since the 1950s and the Dales is firmly in my heart. I manage a Bed and Breakfast in the village, a business which has been in my family for over 30 years.

Sian WhealAs a local resident, I can see the problems that visitors don't see - the decline in regular public transport, the rubbish left behind by tourists, the lack of affordable housing for local people. This is a vibrant area to live and draws visitors from far and wide, but we mustn't lose sight of the needs of the people who live and work here. They are the soul of Wharfedale.


I believe that our community is best served by a diverse Council that works for everyone in the community and that's why I am standing for election. If elected, I will listen to your concerns and work hard to address these issues that affect you on a daily basis. I am willing to stand up for fairness and equality for local residents.
