ANDREW TAGG THE LOCAL CHOICE FOR ILL NGWORTH " MIXENDEN WARD

FLOODING BRADSHAW BOWLING CLUB" WEST VIEW TERRACE
Residents living on West View Terrace Bradshaw made Andrew aware of serious flooding down the back of their houses and the Bowling Club. Andrew has been working with Calderdale Drainage to come up with a solution. Labour Cllr Daniel Sutherland promised to resolve the flooding issues in Bradshaw in the 2010 election.

ABBEY PARK NEEDS REDEVELOPING
For years the residents of Abbey Park have put up with poor housing and neglect. It's about time this is brought to an end. Andrew calls on Pennine Housing to put together a plan to re-develop the remaining housing stock.

EMPIRE WORKS, SHAYLANE
Andrew was contacted by local resident regarding the eye saw which was once Empire Works. The building was demolished and piles of rubble left for nearly two years. The site has not been properly secured and is easily accessible. It is a danger to children. After contacting the owner on several occasions with little action, Andrew has been pushing Calderdale planning enforcement to pressure the developer to clear and secure the site. Too often commercial buildings are demolished for their stone and the sites left for considerable amounts of time. Andrew states "This was my first place of work after I left school. So seeing it left like this saddened me. Developers should only be given permission to demolish sites if they have a proper plan to clear and secure the site. We have numerous sites across North Halifax in such a state. In the not too distant future we will have Heathy House and St Catherine's High School left vacant. The council and planning need to ensure these buildings are secure and if demolished the sites are properly cleared.

OUR ROADS ARE IN A TERRIBLE CONDITION
The number of pot holes and ruts in the roads throughout the area is unacceptable. Shay Lane Holmfield is a prime example. The council needs to focus on repairing and resurfacing the roads but also on the quality of maintenance and repairs being carried out by contractors. In many cases, pot holes form as a result of poor repairs carried out by utilities or council contractors. It has become a merry go round of repeated patching and repairs.
Andrew examines a badly damaged road surface.

The quality of the repair work needs to be improved.

SOME THOUGHTS FROM ANDREW

Community Cohesion: Andrew agrees with Eric Pickles that councils need to promote the use of English in our communities and should stop wasting tax payers money translating documents into other languages. Immigration: Andrew strongly believes mass immigration cannot be controlled, without having full control of our borders, and this cannot be achieved while we are in the EU.Andrew supports leaving the EU and joining the European Free Trade Agreement like Norway and Switzerland.

Remember, when local Conservatives win our whole community wins.
