CONSTITUENCY #7

CONSTITUENCY #7: MY PLAN

Together, we have accomplished much throughout our first term. But there is more work to do. Now is not the time to put what we have at risk. Now is the time for push ahead to brighter future. Let’s stay together, let’s see this through.

Together we have achieved much for Constituency 7. But there is still more work to do. I have a plan not just for the nation, but for us locally. It will deliver a stronger and safer future with more jobs, better homes and safer streets.

    1. Creating new jobs for #7 by:  

    • Revitalizing our village businesses such as our community shops, salons, ICT and mechanic shops.
    • Creating a business park with office shells and fighting for incentives for private persons who invest in businesses in rural communities.
    • Restructuring the parking lot at Bourryeau (next to Fraites Bakery) to become a marketplace and food court. This would see a farmers market on weekends, a food court to accommodate community food vendors, stalls for local crafts and allow for social events on the weekends.
    • Facilitating the development of agricultural projects in the constituency.
    • Developing local tourism with environmental, cultural, and farm tourism. Visits to farms will be structured around a tour offering insight into the cultivation, care, processing, and manufacturing of these commodities. We will also encourage tourism which explores our cultural and natural landscapes.

    2. Delivering more homes locally:  

    • Delivering the Downson Development with cottages and villas.
    • Building on our strong record on delivering homes by continuing the affordable housing programme, and housing developments for middle-income persons

    3. Delivering the important infrastructure our community needs with:  

    • The Ottleys Playfield development.
    • Connecting Black Rocks to Downson with a road or bridge.
    • Continuing our program of road construction. 

    4. Protecting our shoreline with beach reclamation at Tabernacle, Black Rocks and Mansion and further development at Mansion Bay.  

    5. Securing a stronger and safer future by strengthening our social and community development by:  

    • Creating a Senior Citizens Volunteer Program that recognises their experience and value to our community.
    • Re-energizing community through sports participation and local competitions.
    • Refurbishing old building and Government buildings to provide housing for homeless and at-risk youths.
    • Delivering Mother and Child Food Assistance (MCFA) that is applicable to pregnant mothers and those with young children (up to age four). 
    • Delivering workshops on parenting and childcare.

    6. Recognising the importance of our young people. I have a plan to create a Youth Engagement Programme to ensure participation in programs such as:  

    • Childcare services, after-school programs (including skill development, crafts, clubs, and groups), storytelling at primary schools, music classes, homework assistance, mentorship and community service.

    7. Deliver family play areas beginning with larger communities of the Constituency that include new benches, slides, swings, games and videogame arcades.  

    8. We are delivering a record amount of funding for our healthcare system, especially now in response to the coronavirus, there is still more to do locally, that’s why I want to:  

    • Complete the Tabernacle Health Centre
    • Expand Services available at Mary Charles Hospital to include support for NCDs such as diabetes.
    • Expand the number of lab tests which can be done at Mary Charles Hospital.
