Chris on Westhoughton Bypass

Despite decades of Labour inaction, I was really pleased that this Conservative Government listened to our campaign and revived plans for a Westhoughton relief road based on the old A5225 proposals.

Whilst I'm pleased that the Government is now looking at building this bypass, I have become increasingly concerned that Bolton's Labour Council will use this as an excuse to build yet more houses that our area doesn't want nor need. 

If I am re-elected as your Member of Parliament, I'll continue to work with local Conservative Councillors to make sure that this doesn't happen.
