Champion:

  1. I will champion local businesses putting wealth back into our community and will fight to
    end outsourcing of council contracts to large, outside companies and instead sourcing local
    solutions to our needs for goods and services.
  2. I will champion social care for our elderly and young residents by supporting community
    ventures and fighting in the council to see services improve.
  3. I will champion efforts to create a rural economic development plan to provide dedicated
    investment in secure well-paid jobs, provide high-quality technological connectivity and
    improved transport infrastructure in order to attract new businesses and opportunities for
    people.

Specific Issues:

  1. The unaffordability of housing is a big issue in a ward that despite seeing lots of new homes
    being built but prices still rising. I will fight to reduce the number of new builds going to 2 nd
    homes and B&Bs whilst demanding more affordable housing and supporting first time
    buyers.
  2. There are many jobs in Whitby, but there are few which are both secure and provide decent
    pay. There is an increasing case of people who work in Whitby but live far outside where it
    more affordable.
  3. Limited parking spaces and massive congestion particularly during busy tourist days have to
    be alleviated through improving our public transport to be both affordable and reliable and
    ultimately be a genuine alternative. The return of community bus services is vital to
    supporting the ward and town’s isolated communities and those in the smaller villages.
