Kim Taylor

Councillor Brighton Hill

I am proud to be your Local Councillor, and will do everything I can to represent the residents of Brighton Hill at Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and to make Brighton Hill be a great place to live and work.

I am one of three Labour Councillors working hard for Brighton Hill.

Below are my pledges to our great community.

My Pledges

I will fight to save local bus services and the free bus pass for the OAP’s and disabled. I’ll oppose the Conservative cuts to the Brighton Hill’s bus service.

Help me campaign for more police on the beat. With 1000 less Hampshire police officers, tackling local crime and antisocial behaviour will be impossible. I want to see more police not less.

I want to see more investment in parking solutions and an end to the pothole epidemic in our roads.

I will fight for better GP services putting pressure on out local Care Commissioning Group.

I will support the Ice Rink  as it is an essential and important part of the Basingstoke community.

I will oppose the Tory tip tax, charging to use the Wade Road tip will increase local fly tipping.

I will defend our sports pitches, parks and play areas from neglect and development. Our children need safe spaces to play in and our green spaces improve air quality and the environment.

I will campaign for regulation of local landlords. High rents and badly maintained properties are not good for tenants or their neighbours.

I will defend the Brighton Hill District Centre and support our local shops and small businesses. We don’t need more half empty retail parks. Basingstoke is more that the sum of its shops. Local leisure amenities come first.


The Leadership Our Town Needs Right Now

About Kim

I have a long-established Basingstoke Family history. My grandparents lived in the old terraced houses in front of the station before they were moved to council housing when the houses were finally demolished.

I spent some of my childhood in exotic places like Kuwait when my father was in the army. Most of the time I grew up in Worting Road and went to Brookvale Primary School (before it got turned into expensive flats) and Cranbourne Comprehensive.

Like many Basingstoker’s I started my working life at the AA. I also spent some time working and living in Reading and London before finally returning to my Basingstoke roots about 30 years ago.

Much of my employment has been in public service, for the Legal Aid Board and Basingstoke College of Technology. I now have my own small training business.

As a committed union supporter, I have been chair of the Legal Aid ASTMS union group and am still a union member today, in the National Education Union.
