A Greener Ipswich
- I will promote cycling and car alternatives. It only takes around 25 minutes to cycle from the bottom to the top of Ipswich and encouraging better cycle and pedestrian infrastructure will drive down emissions in the town.
- I will address Ipswich’s poor air quality. The air quality in Ipswich is not as good as it should be so I will promote initiatives that will reduce air pollution.
- I will campaign for more green spaces and trees. Green spaces are not only good for our physical health by promoting exercise and activity, but also for our mental health; trees make the town more beautiful and green spaces are places we can gather to meet.
Improved Health and Wellbeing Services
I am adopting a ‘watchdog’ role to ensure that Ipswich hospital is not disadvantaged from the merger with Colchester hospital and continues to be a first-class hospital.
Regenerating and Revitalising our Town
I will make sure that investment is spread across the town, especially in places that have previously been left behind, such as Chantry and Gainsborough.
Easing Congestion and Better Rail Services
I will stop the Orwell Bridge closures. These closures cost our town roughly £1 million a day and result in unacceptable levels of congestion on our roads.
Making Ipswich Safer
I will continue to support youth and community initiatives that will keep our kids off the streets, safe, and stimulated.
Improving SEND Education and Youth Services
I will promote skills training and apprenticeships in Ipswich. This will ensure that there are avenues to good careers for young people.
