My Plan

  • Campaign for improved local health services

    Campaign for improved local health services: We have seen high levels of housebuilding in the local area, but our Councils have failed to provide the extra health resources to meet increased need.

  • Protect our green spaces from over-development

    The legacy of the local Labour Council leadership has made it difficult to prevent green-space development. The Greater Manchester Mayor has made this worse with the unacceptable delays to the spatial framework. Chris will continue to do all he can to fight against green-field developments and promote a brown-field first policy in Bolton West and Atherton.

  • Fix our broken roads and pavements

    Bolton Conservatives have set aside an extra £10million to improve our local roads, to be spent fairly throughout the borough. Chris will continue to campaign to ensure that Wigan Council follows their lead and allocates fair funding to fix Atherton’s roads.  

  • Support local businesses, including our local high streets

    Bolton West has a variety of lovely high streets which have been neglected for years by the local Labour leadership. Now, with a Conservative led Council in Bolton, Chris will work with the new leadership to regenerate Horwich and Westhoughton town centres. He will also continue to urge Wigan Council to invest in Atherton town centre.  

  • Combat crime and anti-social behaviour

    There has been an increase in constituents contacting Chris about local crime. In response, he organised a series of public meetings to provide residents with a forum to discuss their crime concerns directly with Bolton West and Atherton’s police Sergeants. Chris will also continue to fight for an increased police presence on our streets to act as a crime deterrent. 

  • Fight to tackle congestion

     Chris will work in government and with local organisations to find solutions to ongoing problems with congestion. This will include campaigning for the Westhoughton Bypass to be built, the creation of a junction 7 on the M61 and greater investment in our railways.
