“Since 2015 I have had the huge honour of representing my community of Lightwood North and Normacot on the council.
“I live and work locally, and have been proud to have made improvements throughout the ward, whether improving footpaths, securing support for community groups or dealing with troublesome sites. Protecting the greenbelt at Lightwood has been a tough fight, but together with residents we have succeeded in stopping development, and in the last few years, the community have really come together to tackle issues around litter, with regular litterpicks.
“I am proud to represent such a strong community.
“We continue to make improvements locally by working together and getting the job done."
Councillor Sadaqat Maqsoom
