High Peak - we deserve our fair share.
High Peak should be the best place to live in the whole country: we’ve got extraordinary countryside, strong communities and we’re the gateway to the Northern Powerhouse. With the world of work becoming more footloose, High Peak should be the most desirable place to run a business, to live, to work and to commute from and to.
But there’s one big barrier to this: the state of our local public services and infrastructure. We can’t boast of a great quality of life if we spend our lives waiting for delayed trains or stuck in traffic on the A6 and A57. We will never achieve our potential if there’s no affordable housing, if NHS dentists are as rare as hen’s teeth, or if people feel nervous walking home at night.
We pay our taxes – in fact we are paying the highest taxes in more than 70 years. But we have nothing to show for it. Glossop was supposed to be a priority for levelling up funding, but our money went south. Buxton was promised a new health hub, but this Conservative government axed it.
It’s time High Peak got its fair share. The next Labour Government will: revitalise and reform our NHS; work in partnership with business to green our economy and invest in the well paid, high skilled jobs of the future; and take back control of our buses and trains guaranteeing services and fares.
And it will be my job, if you elect me as your representative at the next election, to make sure we get our fair share. Our fair share of investment in our towns, high streets and communities. Our fair share of improvements to our schools, health and care services and our police. And our fair share of new jobs and business growth.
