Investing in our high streets and backing business: Thanks to our balanced approach to the economy we can invest in our high streets and town centres. That’s why I’m working with the new Conservative council and local residents to regenerate Horwich and Westhoughton town centres and I’ll push Wigan Council to improve Atherton. Bringing empty shops back into use and championing small businesses with my Best Local Shop competition.
In addition to this, Chris has used his status as Member of Parliament to run multiple competitions to support local businesses, such as the Parliamentary Pub of the Year award and the Best Local Shop competition. Over the last four years, Chris has also met a great many local businesses and has also kept up-to-date with concerns through his regular business surveys.
For more information about what Chris has been doing to support local businesses, including our local high streets, see some of the news articles below.
