My Plan

  • Practical action on jobs, skills and employment

    Practical action on jobs, skills and employment – I have organised 11 jobs and skills events which have got local people into work and training providing them with a career path after school, or an opportunity to re-train.

  • Support local traders & shops to boost towns

    Support local traders & shops to boost towns – In Halesowen, Old Hill, Cradley Heath and Blackheath local traders make big contribution to jobs and our High Streets, as someone who started my own small business I’ve worked to champion them.

  • Improve local railway stations and transport links

    Improve local railway stations and transport links – like a lot of local people I’m a regular train user. I want to see improved time keeping, better stations and more services on our trains and buses. Our road network also needs constant repair.

  • Fighting litter, graffiti and anti-social behaviour

    Fighting litter, graffiti and anti-social behaviour - Litter is always an ongoing battle, but along with local councillors I have taken practical steps to clean up our towns and local communities by organising and taking part in local litter picks.

  • Protecting our local heritage

    Protecting our local heritage and greenbelt – there is a real threat to our greenbelt across the Black Country and I have stood shoulder to shoulder with Save Halesowen’s Countryside group to help protect and maintain our greenbelt for future generations.
