My Plan

It's time to do politics differently: More decisions taken here in Yorkshire. A new, next generation Mayor elected by you. 

Read about My Plan for York and North Yorkshire below.

  • More police and safer streets

    Introduce dedicated officers for every community with extra patrols to cut crime and keep us safe.
    Improve 999 and 101 so you can get help when you need it.
    Take a tough approach to anti-social behaviour, shoplifting, burglary and rural crime.

  • Secure a fair deal for our farmers and fisherman

    Seek direct control of farm payments so North Yorkshire is in charge, not London.
    Protect and promote local food and drink with official 'Made in Yorkshire' labelling.
    Establish a relief fund to compensate food producers hit by disasters.

  • Deliver quality homes local people can afford

    Build 'half price homes' discounted by up to 50% to help people get a foot on the housing ladder.
    Regenerate brownfield sites and unlock 900 new homes in the first two years.
    Support rural communities with new homes so the generation are not priced out of our villages.

  • Create new jobs and secure investment

    Help businesses to start up and grow by establishing a North Yorkshire regional mutual bank to provide finance and support.
    Open new construction skills centres and establish a regional hospitality academy to support poeople into successful careers.

  • Better transport and travel connections

    Expand rural, evening and weekend bus services. And introduce flat £1 bus fares for under 22s.
    Invest millions extra in road repairs and key infrastructure such as the A64, York Outer Ring Road and A59 Kex Gill.
