My Plan for Chipping Barnet

  1. Protecting our green spaces

Local people don’t want building on the green belt or in our green spaces. So I’m working to protect the fields at Whalebones. I’m also fighting overdevelopment and opposing the plan for tower blocks in North London Business Park

 

  1. Expanded GP services for Barnet

I am campaigning for the best NHS services for my constituents. The Government has promised to expand GP services and I want that to be delivered to help local people get GP appointments when they need them. I campaigned for Chase Farm Hospital to be rebuilt and the £200m new facility has started taking its first patients.

 

  1. More police and saving our police station 

The Labour Mayor of London gives Barnet fewer police than almost any other London borough. I am campaigning for the Mayor to give Barnet a fair share of resources so we have more police, and more action to combat burglary. I'm also urging the mayor not to sell off Barnet Police station.

 

  1. Improving transport 

I am keeping up pressure on GTR to improve rail services, and pushing TfL to reverse their reduction in services on the High Barnet branch of the Northern Line. I am campaigning for cleaner air, including lower emission buses.

 

  1. Giving Barnet children the best education 

I have always supported our excellent local schools and I backed the successful campaigns for new faith schools such as JCoSS, St Andrew the Apostle and Alma Primary school. I urged The Government to fund the rebuilding of Cromer Road School and I am pushing to see that delivered. The Government is working to raise standards in schools and broaden access to apprenticeships.
