South Middlesbrough Infrastructure Action Group (SMIAG)

We need to solve the problem of traffic across the south of Middlesbrough. There has been some work done by government in the widening of the Parkway/A19 junction which is due to be completed soon helping to solve the rush hour queues at the roundabout.Unfortunately Ed Miliband's current MP has achieved nothing over the past 5 years, but I am determined to achieve with this. So I am setting up the South Middlesbrough Infrastructure Action Group which will have its first meeting at the Marton Country Club Hotel on March 19th at 7pm.

New techniques to crack down on crime

I am determined to ensure that our area receives the very best policing possible. Cleveland Police do an excellent job in sometimes very difficult circumstances. So I have been in touch with other Police Services in the north to learn new techniques and share them with Cleveland Police. The Inspector responsible for rural crime is studying these recommendations. 

Creating more local job opportunities

Creating more local job opportunities for our young people is an importrant part of my plan for our area.I have already organised three apprenticeship events at Prior Pursglove College in Guisborough, which have brought some of our great local businesses together with our schools and training providers.I will continue to work with all these groups to ensure that we continue to drive cooperation between them ensuring more high-quality local opportunities for our young people on Teesside and in East Cleveland.
