Hollingdean & Stanmer ward takes in the city parks Wild Park and Stanmer Park, with its village namesake, as well as diverse housing from student residences in the north-east to the tranquil suburban neighbourhood of Coldean. To the south the ward runs as far east as Lewes Road and the Bates Estate, west to Ditchling Road at Fiveways, and south along Hollingdean Road and the waste and recycling depot at the southern point of the Hollingdean neighbourhood.
Whether it's supporting our youngest children through Sure Start or developing leaders of the future at the city's two universities, Caroline cares deeply about education and leaving a better world for our young people.
She's standing up to the broken Westminster consensus on tuition fees, for decent, affordable housing, safer communities and fairer fares on the buses.
Standing up for Hollingdean & Stamner
- Secure housing

- Local advice 'surgeries'
- Caroline has held local advice surgeries including at the Sure Start Centre on Brentwood Road and on the number 50 bus
- Goodbye to tuition fees
