MP for Little Aston Welcomes Feedback From Local Residents

Christopher Pincher, MP for Tamworth & Little Aston, has welcomed the huge volume of feedback from local people who participated in his recent local residents' survey. The survey asked a range of questions from local issues of concern to national policy issues including membership of the European Union and whether residents believe the Government's economic plan is working.

90% of Little Aston residents that responded to the survey said they were confident about the future of the economy and that the Government's economic plan is working. If forced to choose a whopping 96% of respondents said they would prefer to see spending reductions rather than tax rises to balance the country's finances. The three national policy issues most important to residents in Little Aston are the NHS, immigration and reforming the welfare system.

One of the dominant local themes raised was traffic volume and speed through Little Aston especially at the junction of Hardwick Road and Little Aston Park Road, as well as speeding traffic along Little Aston Lane. Mr Pincher has already written to the County Council about these issues and raised them with County Councillor David Smith who is conducting an area wide traffic survey to identify the specific challenges that exist and their impact on other areas so that plans can be drawn up to address them.

In response to the feedback, Mr Pincher said:

"I am always pleased to hear from residents on what matters most to them. It is encouraging to hear that the majority of people feel that this Government has a plan to deliver a sustainable economic recovery and are confident about the future of our country. I will pass on concerns about speeding traffic and road safety to Staffordshire County Council and ask them to address them. I will also work with David Smith to ensure fixes in one place do not generate problems elsewhere."

Conservatives are taking difficult long-term decisions to secure a better future for Britain. That is why they are cutting the deficit, fixing the welfare system, raising standards in schools, limiting immigration, delivering apprenticeships and helping Britain's businesses create jobs. Local unemployment is now at its lowest level since before the recession and continues to fall. Tamworth & Little Aston has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in the country.
