Cllr Maria Higson
is one of three Conservative councillors for Hampstead Town, London Borough of Camden. Maria was elected in May 2018.
"I work in the NHS and I’m really committed to better public services, especially improving health and social care.
I live on busy and often-gridlocked Fitzjohn’s Avenue, and I've seen as you have the impact of increasing traffic and over-development on air pollution. I’m campaigning and to plant more trees on local streets and require schools to have binding travel management plans to tackle the problem.
I volunteer at two homeless shelters, where I’m proud to work with inspirational volunteers to help people in crisis turn their lives around. I'm a liberal Conservative and I believe passionately in rolling up my sleeves to help the worst-off.
As a private renter, I am all too familiar with the difficulties of renting locally, and will do my utmost to ensure Camden works to raise the quality of the private rented sector."
