Wednesday 22 April – Our Manifesto for Bedlington

I have had another day pounding the streets of Bedlington,around the Station end mainly, and getting a good reception on the doorstep – the good weather is getting a lot of gardening done! Bedlington Station is actually in an even worse position than the town centre, which is no mean feat. There are some useful shops and restaurants but it could certainly do with a make over.

I’ve heard today the depressing but not exactly surprising news that the organisers of Make A Noise for Bedlington have been targeted for abuse from those who think it is some sort of smear campaign. Well no-one is being smeared, and as far as I can see it is just a group of non-aligned residents trying to do something to improve their community.

Here is the Conservative’s Manifesto for Bedlington:

1) Promote Bedlington town centre to create businesses and local jobs
Use tactics such as temporary business rate reductions and improving car parking arrangements.

2) Ensure housing developments are sensible and sustainable
We need to ensure that house building in Bedlington is in step with local residents’ needs and views.

3) Raise the profile of Bedlington
For too long Bedlington has been marginalised by towns in the neighbourhood. We will ensure it get its fair share of initiatives and projects.
