It's Time for Trowbridge

In Trowbridge FOCUS

Andrew Bryant & Denis BatesIt's time to demand better for Trowbridge. Our town has been ignored for far too long by the ruling Conservatives.

Under them, our town centre has declined, our roads are a mess and our schools don't receive fair funding, so our children are disadvantaged.

The Conservatives have cut our Police. They have abolished our Youth Service. Local, young families are struggling to find an affordable first home.

Meanwhile the Bowyers site lies derelict and the Conservatives have agreed to the building of 250 houses on the only open space between Drynham and North Bradley.

Enough is enough!

It's time to stand up for Trowbridge. I ask for your support in sending the ruling Conservatives a clear message by voting me in as your next Councillor.

Back Andrew's Seven Action Points

1. Fix our broken roads - fix potholes instead of paying out expensive compensation claims to motorists.

2. Fair funding for our schools - Wiltshire schools receive less cash than almost anywhere lese. As a former teach I know what that means, our children miss out. It's time that stopped.

3. Support our young people - abolishing our Youth Service was a disgraceful act. Young people need our support and access to positive activities.

4. Stop police cuts - there are fewer police officers under the Tories. Our police face a difficult task, but we still need to see high profile foot patrols in our town.

5. Sort out our Town Centre - Trowbridge is our County Town. We deserve fair and sustainable investment from County Hall.

6. Build affordable homes - local people, particularly young families, struggle to get a home. We need affordable houses built on the Bowyers site.

7. Keep the green space between Drynham and North Bradley - open space matters. I've fought to protect our green space and oppose building Drynham and North Bradley.
