Luke Allan - Liberal Democrat Candidate for Settle and Penyghent

LE21 Campaigning for Luke Allan

The transition into the new unitary authority of North Yorkshire Council is an unprecedented and radical change to local government and will have a lasting impact on current and future generations for years to come. As decision-making moves to Northallerton, we need a committed local champion who will address the long-standing issues of our community, such as the lack of appropriate affordable housing; speeding and litter that blights our picturesque landscapes; road maintenance; cuts to vital local services; and our abhorrent record on addressing the growing climate emergency.

I have a proven track record of supporting communities, speaking up against injustice and campaigning for meaningful change in my strive for a stronger society, and I am attentive to the issues faced by Craven residents after having lived here for most of my life. I also have experience working with community groups, organisations, law enforcement and local government.

On May 5th, elect a representative that prioritises the needs of residents over personal ambition by voting for a local champion dedicated to protecting our communities future.

It's time for a clean slate. Vote Luke Allan for a fresh voice and a fair deal for North Craven.

Campaign update: 18th April 2022

"I would like to apologise for the delay in meeting many of you on the doorstep again this year. Earlier this month, I contracted Coronavirus and fell considerably unwell; unfortunately, I continue to be suffering from the fluctuating long-term effects of my illness. Despite this, I am hopeful to see many of you on the doorstep, once again, over the coming weeks."

Liberal Democrats work hard for our communities, we hear your concerns, and never take you for granted.

My priorities for our area

Environment and climate

From tackling Craven's abhorrent record on recycling and the growing issue of litter blighting our area to pushing for more electric vehicle charging points and sustainable building practises.

Transport and housing

From fighting for a reliable and integrated public transport network to pushing for more affordable housing and renewable energy provisions in our area, in addition to tackling the long-standing issue of second homes.

Farming and agriculture

From increasing financial support (i.e. maintaining existing farm payments until the new Environmental Land Management scheme is fully rolled out) to farmers to maintaining the beauty and biodiversity of our natural countryside.

Children and young people's services

From restoring local provisions (i.e. youth clubs and social sports) to improving access to mental health services.

Business and local economy

From increasing financial support to the introduction of a local business toolkit (i.e. webinars and training) on everything from accounting to marketing.

Democracy and accountability

From increasing councillor surgeries and drop-ins (i.e. providing in-person, video, and telephone appointments) to providing regular reports and updates on my work and that of the council.

Liberal Democrats work hard for our communities, we hear your concerns, and never take you for granted.
