My Plan for Keighley

The Keighley and Ilkley Constituency covers a large geographical area with many varying challenges and opportunities. That is why I have set out my six individual priorities for both Keighley, and for Ilkley.

This page identifies my six local priorities for Keighley, which includes Silsden, Steeton, Riddlesden, East Morton and the Worth Valley.


More GP appointments and investment into Airedale Hospital

We need access to doctors when it matters most, that’s why I’ll campaign for better access to GPs to provide more appointments at local surgeries and better out of hours facilities; and I’ll support Airedale Hospital by investing more in key services like our Maternity Unit and A&E.

Ending crippling traffic congestion

We’ve secured improvements to the A650 at Hard Ings Road, now I’ll make sure that they’re completed and we get more action to tackle crippling congestion across Keighley, such as using the space on North Street and East Parade more effectively, so traffic can get by at peak times.
