Over the next four years, we will:

Invest in Community Transport schemes to help reinstate bus services that the Tories have cut.

Invest at least £25 million a year in improving our roads and pavements.

Ask local District Councils to take on the Highway planning aspects of all relevant planning applications.

Fix potholes carefully, as they are reported, with a target of 28 days maximum and with care taken to repair other potholes close by.

Ask Local Authorities to take on Rights of Way, and streamline the Rights of Way planning system with more public involvement.

Continue to work with local councils to reduce the impact of winter weather.

Work with our contractors to implement more flexible ways of working, to improve repairs and gully maintenance.
