We have a great hospital in Bishop Auckland, but some services are only available in Durham or Darlington. The NHS is getting record investment now, so I’ll fight to get a share of that to bring back our A&E.
Many residents in Teesdale and Weardale can’t get decent internet. Cutting off rural communities, homes and businesses. I’m campaigning for better broadband and rural 4G coverage, so we eliminate ‘not spots’ where there is no connection.
Bishop and Spennymoor high streets need our help. We’re in line for up to £25 million of support. So I’ll work with residents and businesses on a plan. Bringing empty shops into use and creating more choice.
We need a bypass at Toft Hill. Residents have been demanding action for too long. Now we need to protect local people and children at Toft Hill Primary by redirecting traffic and HGV’s to a new relief road.
Our community sports clubs are at the heart of our towns and villages. But residents have told me they are concerned about future funding. So I’ll create community sports network, working with clubs and local leaders. Meaning more funds and better facilities.
