Starting with our share of the 20,000 new officers being recruited. We will give them the extra resources and they need to be able to do their jobs. Matt also wants to roll out no cold calling zones and more CCTV across the constituency to keep residents safe.
New housing should work for us, not just the developers. Current plans by the council for new homes are ill-thought-out, adding more congestion onto our already busy roads. We need homes in the right places that people can afford, with the schools and infrastructure they need.
By upgrading the A66, building an additional Tees crossing and using extra funds to tackle potholes, we can ease congestion. I will also work to ensure more regular train services and support the Mayor develop a plan for our airport.
We need to encourage more businesses to move here and benefit from employing our hardworking people and creating more apprenticeships. Teesside is already benefitting from the Freeport which will create more than 18,000 good jobs – but we must not stop there!
