As with all our neighbours, we want to look after those who need extra care. With an ageing population, that means the right homes and the right community assets. We want to makes sure that the council plans to create new extra care housing are fulfilled and we mean in the borough, potentially on large Council-owned sites.
For development projects and infrastructure, we have discussed and are interested in raising the funds from a variety of means and one of those is through local authority bonds. These would allow investment in local development by locals for locals benefit.
In terms of community assets there is potential to build on the already fantastic work that is being done by charities in this borough, with some innovative uses of space and clever amalgamation of the services available.
We want to make it possible that those moved out of borough by the current administration will be returned to the home, the community that they know and love.
