Supporting the Local Economy

The number one issue on the door step is the economy, and while the Conservatives nationally have turned the economy around I am keen to replicate the national trend locally and I will support local businesses, protect local jobs and bring more investment in to the local economy.

One of the key pieces of work I am supporting is the regeneration of Newhaven led by my Conservative colleagues at District and County level and it is a very exciting time for Newhaven which sees, at last, realistic investment after many years of broken promises and failed attempts.

Exciting projects in the pipeline in addition to the new fire station, include £8.9 million of flood defence money which will make Newhaven more attractive for investors, the proposed University Technical College which is due to be completed by September 2015 and the investment secured for the Newhaven Growth Quarter which will bring much needed jobs to the area.
