My Plan

  • Delivering high-skilled jobs and apprenticeships:

    Backing our ceramics industry, delivering a new research centre for ceramics, and focussing and supporting new industries. So we can provide local jobs for years to come. And championing local businesses so they can further invest in our area. Bringing more jobs and a stronger local economy.

  • Improving our city’s road & rail connections

    Bringing upgrades to our major highways, reducing congestion on roads like the A50 and A500. Enhancing local rail services and championing the opening of new stations. Making your rail journeys better and giving you access to new routes.

  • Helping our town centres and communities thrive

    Working with local groups and businesses to showcase what we are good at, and holding a manufacturing festival to demonstrate the best of local industry. Getting continued investment for Longton and Fenton, and backing our small businesses.

  • Bringing more opportunities for our young people

    Local education has got better. But we need to go further. I will work with local schools, to ensure young people are aware of the paths available to them, and have the best facilities.  Supporting employers and Longton Jobcentre to get more apprenticeships.
