Blackpool Council has badly neglected our Airport, ignoring its potential. Since they bought it several years ago they have failed to make re-opening the Airport for commercial passenger flights a priority.
Having Police on the beat acts as a deterrent to criminals and those who cause anti-social behaviour. Ensuring that we have a permanent Policing presence, at the heart of our communities, and that local Police are able to quickly respond to calls, makes our streets and neighbourhoods safer.
Parts of our town centre are in need of a re-vamp. We’ve had a Labour MP & Labour Council for years, who have failed to make the changes our town centre needs. We need to fill the empty shops, tackle anti-social behaviour, and help homeless people off the streets.
Recent improvements at Victoria Hospital such as the new stroke clinic, and mental health decision unit, are already delivering better health services for local people. An extra £394 million a week for our NHS will help to further improve our local health services.
