Residents of Whitwell have suffered for decades due to traffic cutting through their village. I am working with local councillors, Derbyshire County Council, and Network Rail to lower the road under the bridge and allow HGV access to Worksop.

World Heritage Status for Creswell Crags
Bolsover is a beautiful rural constituency with huge tourism potential. I am working with Creswell Heritage Trust and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, to support the Creswell Crags in its application to be listed as a World Heritage Site. This status would help it become one of the leading visitor attractions in the East Midlands and UK.
Creswell Doctor’s Surgery
I understand the importance of being able to see a GP quickly and having all the necessary services on site. Therefore, I am supporting the local NHS to build a new, modern, and 21st century GP surgery to serve the village.
I will work with Bolsover District Council to regenerate the former colliery to encourage employment, build affordable housing, and to explore the exciting prospect of a mine water energy scheme.
Elmton to Creswell Cyclepath/Walkway
I think it would be wonderful if we could link up our local communities and last year I wrote to Derbyshire County Council requesting a cycle link between Creswell and Elmton, but it was unfortunately declined. I would still love to see this project go ahead and am continue to explore other option to potentially fund this project.
