This page shows the campaigns I am engaged in around Clowne, Barlborough, Whitwell, and Creswell. If you would like to know more details about any of these campaigns please do not hesitate to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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 working with Elmton-with-Creswell Parish Council and NHS Derby and Derbyshire CCG to build a new, modern, and 21st century GP surgery to replace the two existing surgeries that serve the village.
Creswell Infant and Nursery School
I want every child to have to best possible start in life, that’s why I am helping the school’s leadership to secure necessary funding for maintenance and repair works, so our children can be proud of their school.
Creswell Boxing Gym
Youth provision in Creswell is not what it could be; recent problems with anti-social behaviour have shown that we need to provide opportunities for young people to channel their energy into something productive. This is why I am supporting a local constituent, a former boxer, in creating a boxing club and gym to use sport to transform the lives of young people.
New Care Home for Clowne
Every resident has the right to live with dignity and security in old age. I am working with Derbyshire County Council to replace East Clune which has had many historical problems with a modern and fit for purpose care home in Clowne.
Clowne Town Centre Regeneration
A healthy high street is incredibly important to our local economy and community. I am working to regenerate Clowne town centre by making public realm improvements and securing better pedestrian and cycle access to Mill Street.
Road safety on Creswell Road is a major concern within the local community. I will work with residents to help find a solution to speeding, traffic, and congestion on the A616.
Barlborough access to Clowne Greenway
Barlborough has poor pedestrian and cycle access to neighbouring villages. I am working with Ride Bolsover to provide new cycle routes from Barlborough Village, the new estate, and the Links, to the Clowne Greenway.
Oxcroft Colliery Memorial
My grandad was a miner and I understand the significance of respecting our heritage as a former mining area. This is why I support a project on behalf of a constituent who would like to see a small memorial at the entrance to the old Oxcroft Colliery site. These brave men whose hardship and graft fuelled the nation should never be forgotten.
Treble Bob Roundabout / J30
The Treble Bob Roundabout in Barlborough continues to suffer from unacceptable levels of congestion, especially during peak times as workers from the Links Business Estate join the M1 at Junction 30. This will be exacerbated by new housing developments in Barlborough, Clowne, and Mastin Moor. I have been working with local stakeholders to secure the necessary funding to prevent standstills, improve the flow of traffic, and ultimately, boost regional connectivity.
