My Plan

Together, we can build on Sir David Amess's legacy and make Southend West an even better place to live. Here's my plan - that I'll get to work on from day one:

1. Making the most of city status – attracting more investment to create more jobs and and bidding for City of Culture status to
enhance our cultural offering.

2. Making Southend safer – by securing our fair share of the over 200 new police officers recruited for Essex. So we can tackle violent crime and drug dealing.

3. Improving local healthcare – making it easier to get face-to-face GP appointments. And working with local healthcare leaders to ensure our hospital provides the services we need.

4. Easing congestion around Southend – working with local leaders to upgrade the A127, helping to cut congestion and make commuting easier. While making Southend more attractive to visitors and tourists.

5. Supporting small businesses and high streets – working with the government to secure the investment our high streets need, from Leigh-on-Sea to Westcliff-on-Sea. So they remain attractive places to visit and shop.
