My Plan for Erewash

  • Securing more good jobs and training

    Since 2010 the number of people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance in Erewash has fallen by more than 50%, whilst over 4,400 people have started an apprenticeship. I want to use my own experience in business to help more people back into work or training, in addition to continuing to hold a Jobs Fair each year.

  • Tackling local crime and safety

    Tackling local crime and keeping Erewash safe is a key point in my plan for our local area. Everyone has the right to feel safe in our community. That is why I am committed to working with the Police and other agencies to tackle crime in our neighbourhoods and support victims.I will also continue to deliver initiatives such as my Door Safety Card Campaign and local Police and Crime Survey.

  • Getting Erewash moving again

    Traffic is a major issue through our towns and villages, so improving this is part of my long term plan for our area. That is why I am campaigning to get our fair share of the £5.2 Billion that the Conservatives have committed to spending on infrastructure projects across the Midlands, so that we can improve our roads and bridges, and get Erewash moving again.

  • Rejuvenating our town centres

    It is clear that our local high streets remain at the heart of many people’s daily lives, and I for one want to see them thrive again. That is why I am committed to working with our Council, the Erewash Partnership and the local business community, to ensure we continue with successful schemes such as free car parking for an hour and help to attract new retailers, both large and small, back into our town centres.

  • Supporting our young people

    In just 5 years the number of students in Erewash taking the core subjects at GCSE has increased by 165%. There has also been significant investement in both new school places and the refurbishment or rebuilding of schools by the Conservatives in Government. I want to ensure that these standards are maintained, and will campaign vigorously to get our fair share of new funding for our schools.
