It was a clean sweep for local Conservatives in North Warwickshire following the elections which took place on 7th May. Not only did they retain the parliamentary seat with their candidate, Craig Tracey but they also gained control of North Warwickshire Borough Council after taking six seats from Labour.
Conservative Group Leader, David Humphreys said:
“We would like to say a huge thank you to the electorate of North Warwickshire for giving us the opportunity to represent them both locally and nationally. We now have a mandate for four years to work to improve things for our local community. Regardless of who you voted for, the Conservative administration recognises it represents the whole community and will strive to ensure this authority is immediately ‘open for business’ to ensure that improvements across the Borough are accessible to everyone. You have given us the opportunity to improve the lives of all residents and we will not fail you.
This council now has significant debt left by the previous Labour administration and we need to ensure that we do not leave this mess for future generations. The greenbelt and unfettered development in open countryside needs to be controlled and all development must be sustainable and benefit the local community.”
Other areas of priority include the roll out of high speed broadband across the constituency, particularly in rural areas and campaigning to ensure proper mitigation for those affected by HS2.
