Zoe was drawn into local politics when defending our open spaces. She successfully opposed building plans on the edge of Lodge Lake and provided evidence and spoke out for the establishment of a permanent village green in Great Holm. Like many residents she enjoys the lake, walking or running with her dog around it most days. She continues to work to enhance our enjoyment of this lovely area.
She is keen to engage residents in the politics of local issues so their views are always taken into account. She led the campaign to stop the closure of Great Holm fire station.
Zoe is excited to be your Councillor in the area she lives and loves, welcoming contact and feedback about your concerns and where you want to see the Parish and Milton Keynes Council put in more effort.
