Time for change in Warrington North
Wendy Maisey OBE, a leading local business woman and Brexiteer, wants to help ensure the region is a success after Brexit, brining investment and capitalising upon the opportunities which leaving the EU will create. She will fight to ensure Warrington enjoys benefits that a strong national economy creates, such as low unemployment and seeing increased investment in the region. Wendy said she will work hard to reduce crime and ensure that Warrington North receives it's fair share of educational funding for schools.
"I want to see more police and a crackdown on anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhoods, solutions to solve traffic congestion in the town centre and more affordable housing build on brownfield sights, while protecting out valuable greenbelt."
"Labour isn't listening to the views and opinions of hard-working people in Warrington North, they are letting people down and it is time for a change."
What areas are covered?
The Borough of Warrington North wards of Birchwood, Burtonwood and Winwick, Culcheth, Glazebury and Croft, Fairfield and Howley, Orford, Poplars and Hulme, Poulton North, Poulton South, Rixton and Woolston, and Westbrook.
WARRINGTON NEEDS A NEW HOSPITAL AND MORE GPS
Securing a new hospital for Warrington North is one of the key priorities for Wendy. She is now urging residents to back her campaign to show the Government the need for 21st century healthcare for the town. The facilities on Lovely Lane can't cope with the level of demand.
"Healthcare professionals and support staff need more space and better facilities. Warrington has a growing and ageing population and we need to update our health provision, I am asking residents to support out petition."
WARRINGTON WILL BENEFIT FROM £14BILLION FUNDING
Wendy says that every child here in Warrington deserves a world class education. "As a mum of three, I've called on the Education Secretary to make changes to the funding formula for disadvantages pupils at local schools, I'm delighted both he and the Prime Minister have responded with such a significant increase, this is excellent news"
The Government have pledged to lift per capita pupil funding to a minimum everywhere of £4,000 for primary school pupils and £5,000 for secondary school pupils.
MAKING BREXIT WORK FOR WARRINGTON FAMILIES
Warrington's economy continues to grow, with wages increasing and unemployment at an historic low. Wendy believes we must realise the benefits of Brexit and secure investment to fund the public services we all rely on.
"We know when you lower taxes jobs are created and business booms. I'll fight to cut the costs of living while investing in education, the NHS and our police"
A PLEDGE TO DELIVER 20,000 EXTRA POLICE OFFICERS
A drive to secure more officers to the streets has been welcomed by Wendy Maisey.
"Cheshire Police have already launched a recruitment campaign for 90 extra officers and I will focus my efforts to ensure we see our share of the extra officers onto streets here in Warrington so residents feel safe. Too frequently I hear that there are concerns about anti-social behaviour which gives rise to so many other problems in our neighbourhoods"
SAVING OUR GREENBELT
Warrington's greenbelt is under attack from all sides, with Warrington's Labour Council planning massive development in areas like Peel Hall, 200 homes on the greenbelt in Culcheth and a future 75 homes in Croft without any thought about infrastructure and services.
"Take Parkside for example, it would be an environmental disaster for Warrington North. The loss of greenbelt and increase in traffic especially from HGV's will have a detrimental effect on air quality. We need to call time on Parkside and open it up as green space for all the community to enjoy.
