Improving Tamworth Town Centre

I am working with local traders and the local authority to make ambitious plans for our town centre a reality.  I back enterprise partnerships and am in support of Tamworth's bid for Future High Street Funding.

I hope that the local high street can soon provide a better leisure offer with more things to do and more restaurant style eateries, a greater variety of independent shops, provision for offices, housing and meeting spaces, boosting market footfall, whilst keeping the town centre clean and accessible for all.
