About Laura Evans and plans for Wirral West

A free thinker who has a business that was started from scratch. A working mother who really understand that life has its challenges.

Hands-on living locally, in West Kirby. Holding regular surgeries across the wards, living in the area is essential as it is the only way to feel the heartbeat of the place.

Wirral West is under represented it needs an active voice in parliament, someone that understands and can relate to the actual needs of the area, at present all we have is the Voice of Corbyn Momentum who represents a party that is flip flopping in any direction and saying anything to get into power. I would look to be our voice fighting for the things that matter to the people that live here. How? by listening to residents, knocking on doors, visiting the shops, businesses, schools listening to community groups, by holding surgeries , attending coffee mornings and local events,  listening to how people feel about where they live.

I would work to deliver on the Brexit vote and work to make a success of it.

Education is hugely important to me I have had my own educational challenges, the ability to have educational choice is vital and the dividing line between the Conservative party and all other parties, who ALL would look to take us back to a one box fits all comprehensive system, is our belief in a wide choice of education offers.. Enabling people to send their child to an establishment of their choice and valuing the diversity of faith, Grammar, Academies and Private schools is essential. I will work to make sure we keep that choice.

As a business owner, I know the difficulties that small and medium size businesses owners go through and the valuable role they play in the areas and country's economy. Wirral West has a diverse range of businesses and as we see signs of growth in areas such as West Kirby and Upton etc , it’s clear these businesses are fragile and have concerns. I will listen to those businesses and look to assist them, so they can continue grow and pay rates and taxes that then feed back into the system and goes to support our NHS, Police, infrastructure and services.

Development on Wirral's Green Belt is unnecessary and a bad idea, we have more than enough Brownfield sites   We need a local plan and some real strategy using brownfield sites first, looking to address the whole and working on a "joined up thinking approach" as to what's needed, what's feasible and what works. This links to infrastructure and our transport. I would focus on the needs of this area and how we are best suited to make our space and our place work best

I would work to make your voice heard in Westminster and the in the Town Hall, I would look to deliver a plan and a Vision for Wirral West that comes from the people that live and work here.

Focusing on one of biggest areas Health and Wellbeing and Arrow park hospital and its need for better parking and long-term investment and easy access by public

Transport holding Mersey Travel to account for lack of buses that offer are infrequent or late and poor facilities at both rail and bus stops, be it lifts, dropped kerbs, benches. 

A vision that sees more of the money we pay stay and be invested in Wirral West and not in Birkenhead. Free Parking at our parks, pot holes fixed, street lights repaired. A better offer from our Police and Crime Commissioner to take action on the small areas where we see pockets of crime, A vision that encourage sport and leisure industries to come and invest and use this wonderful space. Bringing out the best of this fantastic area.

Green Focused

We must not take Natural Capital for granted. Natural capital is one of our most valuable assets. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the land we live on, and the stock of material resources we use in our daily lives are at the heart of our economy, our society and our way of life. I would look to protect and stand up at every opportunity for our Natural Capital.
