Tasleem Fazal – Labour candidate in Corporation Park for 2016
Arshid Mahmood – your Corporation Park Labour Councillor
‘I have worked hard with ward colleagues on concerns raised through our very well attended Ward
Solution Meetings. I am proud of the progress made on many issues. Examples in the last twelve months
include the adoption by the council of Wellfield Road. This required resurfacing and new pavements and
took a lot of time and effort but the outcome made it well worthwhile. In addition the whole of Granville
Road and the bottom of Leamington Road were resurfaced. These were all in response to concerns
raised. We also got the top of West Park Road resurfaced which was another priority for residents.‘

Your Labour Team
Councillor Abdul Rehman
I’m Abdul Rehman and I am once again privileged to be selected to stand in the 2012 local elections. As you will be aware, I have been a Corporation Park Ward Councillor for the past 8 years and I have been part of the local community where I have been involved with various projects such as tackling anti-social behaviour, fighting for funding for local schools, litter problems and road safety. I hope that, once again, I can count on your support to be re-elected in the May elections.
Councillor John Wright
John was born in Blackburn and brought up on Dukes Brow in Corporation Park ward, attending the local Sacred Heart Primary School where he is now a governor.
In the four years that John has represented Corporation Park ward in Blackburn much of the work he has done relates to children. St. Silas’ School, which was originally built in the 19th century, is to be rebuilt at a cost of over £6 million thanks to a long campaign by John and his ward colleague, Cllr Arshid Mahmood.
John works as a civil servant in a role reducing child poverty and at weekends coaches junior football for the Revidge Community Association. Additionally, John is expecting to become a father – due to be born in the same week he will be fighting the local elections in May!
He also represents residents on the Management Board for Wensley Fold Children’s Centre and sees the development of the land next to the Centre as a key ward priority for the coming year. He is looking to gain funding through his role on the North West Neighbourhood Board.
John regularly attends Corporation Park Supporters meetings and is delighted that the working with the the committee has helped gain funding for new bowling facilities, which should be ready for the new season. The priority in the park remains making new toilet facilities available to visitors.

For several years we conducted static surgeries at The Hub on New Bank Road. In June 2009, we decided to change to mobile street surgeries to maximise the number of people that we speak to. We post notices through doors during the week notifying residents of the surgery. Anyone who wants to speak to us can fix the notice in their window and we’ll call by.
If you would like your street to be prioritised for a street surgery, please let us know. But remember you don’t need to wait for a street surgery in order to contact us – we are always pleased to hear from anyone in the ward who needs our help.
