Our Plan For Rochdale

We need affordable housing close to public transport and amenities - we do not need large executive houses built on greenbelt land.

We need to encourage small retailers into the town centre - and deliver a credible plan for the towns market.

We will use the increase in your council tax to put 32 extra bobbies on the beat.

We will reintroduce free bulky waste collections to tackle fly tipping at source.

We will protect publicly funded local bus services - particularly in rural areas - and work with GMPTE to get additional trams and trains at peak times.

We will prioritise funding for youth services so that every young person in Rochdale can truly achieve their potential.

    The Liberal Democrats stand ready to do everything we can to prevent not only a No Deal Brexit.

    We are leaving no option off the table when it comes to preventing the UK crashing out of the E.U.

    As I outlined in my letter to Jeremy Corbyn below, my door is open to any Parliamentarians who wish to work together to prevent a disastrous No Deal. Equally, we are eager to work with any Parliamentarians who seek to stop Brexit itself, because there is no version of Brexit that will leave our country better off.

    This is a moment of national crisis.

    Leaving the Labour party after being a member for almost 20 years was one of the hardest decisions of my life. But Labour has changed beyond recognition. It is now institutionally antisemitic, overtaken by the far left and consumed by a Brexiteer leadership.
