My Plan to Secure a Better Future for York Outer
The national health funding formula still disadvantages York, and our elderly and rural population in particular. I will not stop campaigning on this until our city gets the funds it deserves.
2. Safeguarding York’s Greenbelt
Any development must strike a balance between local housing need and preserving the character of our area. I will continue to oppose speculative planning applications on green belt land.
Local residents and businesses need improved transport infrastructure to keep our city moving. I will push for investment to upgrade the Outer Ring Road, A64, and deliver rail improvements.
York’s schools have not received their fair share of funding for far too long, and I am lobbying for this to be changed.
Fast, affordable broadband for all is essential, and more has to be done to prevent our rural communities being left behind.
I will work to ensure all our communities have the flood defences they need, and to see that overall flood risk is reduced in and around York.
