Strong Infrastructure

As our towns and villages continue to grow, particularly with the Elstree Way Corridor and a new Local Plan being developed, we must get the infrastructure to go with it.  

In addition to education and transport, I continue to campaign for improved local medical facilities, such as a new health hub in Borehamwood, maintaining Potters Bar Hospital, and re-developing key hospitals serving Bushey and Radlett. 

During discussions about a new Local Plan, I emphasised the importance of providing infrastructure to go with any new houses and prevent strain on existing services.  

I continue to work with local and national governments to ensure we have the infrastructure in place to serve our growing community.
