My Plan


I'd love to hear your thoughts on my plan for Keighley and Ilkley, and the other issues affecting you and your family. Please take our survey below.

  • Tackling drugs in Keighley

    I have been approached by a number of residents and businesses in Keighley asking me to look at the drugs issues in the area.

    In October I sent out over 4,500 surveys to residents in Keighley Central, asking them to let me know their concerns and experiences.

  • Delivering job opportunities

    I'm working hard to deliver jobs and apprenticeship schemes in our area; helping people get the skills they need to succeed. Although both youth unemployment and general unemployment in the Keighley area is falling and is lower than when I was elected to Parliament, that’s no consolation to those who are seeking work.

  • Cutting taxes

    Part of my plan for Keighley and Ilkley is to make sure you keep more of your hard earned money to spend on the things that matter to you.

  • Superfast broadband

    I’m delighted that many more families and businesses in Keighley and Ilkley are benefitting from the Conservative’s investment in superfast broadband. Figures show that thanks to this investment, across West Yorkshire 40,231 premises have access to superfast broadband and by 2017 a total of 4,394 homes and businesses in Keighley and Ilkley will have access to superfast connections, who would otherwise have had to suffer from a slow, unreliable internet.

  • Tackling Violent Crime

    My plan is to make Keighley and Ilkley the best places to live, work and raise a family. Tackling violent crime and safeguarding the vulnerable in our community is a key part of it. And our hard work is paying off. Crime is down by 21% in West Yorkshire thanks to our action plan and the hard work of police officers. Families are safer now that criminal damage is down by 36% in our area since 2010.
