My Plan

I am determined to secure a better future for Brecon, Radnor and Cwmtawe making it an even better place to live, work and raise a family. These are the things I am focussing on as your Member of Parliament. 

Tackling the cost of living in rural areas:

Tackling the cost of living in rural areas: With so many homes off the gas grid, incentivising insulation companies to provide rural homes with low-cost home energy measures would help rural homes to withstand the upcoming cost of energy challenge

A common approach to restoring river health:

Water quality in my constituency is poor, harming not only biodiversity but also preventing farmers from expanding their businesses and new homes from being built. Tackling this issue requires inter-institutional activity. So far, this has not happened.           

Increase rural broadband:

Greater connectivity will attract more jobs to my constituency and boost the tourism and hospitality sectors: The Government's GigaBit broadband coverage is working well but I will campaign to deliver a 'rural-first' broadband project so that urgent attention is focussed on notspots like Brecon and Radnorshire  

A reserve unit for Breconshire:

Brecon is the home of the Army in Wales but until now there has never been a permanent Welsh regiment based in Wales: I secured the return of the Queen's Dragoon Guards to Chepstow but bringing a reservist unit to an abandoned military site would regenerate it and create a number of jobs     

Relaxation of planning rules for single home builds for first time buyers:

Young people are priced out of rural areas due to the number of second homes. Farmers often apply to build a single dwelling for a young family member but refusal means they have no other option but to leave.
