My Plan

  • Fix our broken roads and pavements

    The government has given Bolton and Wigan Councils extra funding to fix potholes, and yet most of the money is spent elsewhere in the boroughChris will continue to campaign for Bolton West’s fair share of funding. 

  • Oppose all development on green field and support a brownfield-first policy

     Oppose all development on green field and support a brownfield-first policy.  The latest draft of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework has still allocated our green spaces for industrial development. Chris will continue to fight against any further green space development in Bolton West and Atherton. 

  • Supporting better prospects

    Bolton West has a variety of lovely high streets which have been long-been neglected by the Labour ran local council.  Chris will fight for more investment in the town centres of Westhoughton, Horwich and Atherton, as well as use his position to raise their profiles. 

  • Combat crime and anti-social behaviour

    There is a perceived increase in crime across the constituency, particularly in marginal wards (Horwich and Blackrod and Westhoughton). Chris will campaign for more police presence in Bolton West.
