Together, we can say no to reckless building on green spaces where we don’t have the schools, roads and health facilities to cope. So I’ll oppose the plan made by the Mayor and Bury Council to build in Elton Reservoir, Simister and Hollins . And make sure that any new homes work for us.
Our streets should be safe for everyone, day or night. That’s why I’ll fight for our fair share of extra resources from the 20,000 more police being recruited. And we'll give them the tools they need to fight crime.
We can breathe new life into our town centres. By bringing empty shops back into use and investing in facilities that you can’t get online, like better cultural facilities, quality restaurants, cafes and sports facilities.
We’ve got to end the jams on our roads. A new plan for parking spaces, better junctions and new traffic signals through Prestwich will help to ease the backlog. So I’ll work with residents and businesses to keep traffic moving.
