Access to health services in the High Peak isn’t good enough. Chesterfield is simply too far away and the roads are not good enough. That’s why I’m backing the plans for a major new health centre in the High Peak and fighting for more funding for our NHS.
We need to keep the economy strong and maintain sound public finances so that we can properly fund our public services in future; increasing school budgets in real terms to give every child the best start in life; and give our police the resources they need to tackle crime and antisocial behaviou
Governments of all parties haven’t invested enough in the High Peak for decades. I’m fighting to get the Mottram Bypass built to relieve traffic congestion around Glossop. We also badly need upgrades to longer and more modern trains to reduce commuter misery.
The Peak District is a special place. We must conserve it for future generations. We need to build more homes but they must be built in the appropriate places and with the support of local people, not imposed by Whitehall.
