West Lancs District Council - Tarleton Central Ward

Tarleton Decision Day – Thursday 3rd March
Jim Kay - Conservative

Jim Kay - Conservative Candidate for West Lancashire District Council
Jim Kay - Candidate for West Lancs DC

Thursday 3rd March is the day to decide who is to run West Lancashire – Local Conservatives or Labour from Skelmersdale.

Traffic & Road Issues
Conservatives believe that the current road structure requires further significant investment to take most HGV’s off the village roads. We welcome proposals, which will introduce traffic calming on the main roads past our schools.

Green Lane Link
Everyone wants to see the dangerous congestion in the village and especially the number of HGV’s which dominate our village roads, greatly reduced.

More traffic surveys and design statements will get us nowhere. Immediate action is needed – not more reports and surveys.

The only viable achievable solution is a link road (on the site of the Green Lane) to connect our busy Moss Roads with the A565 dual carriageway. This proposal has overwhelming public support.

We welcome the support of County Council Officials and the formation of the Local Growers Green Lane Action Committee. We are making progress – please continue to give LOCAL CONSERVATIVES your support

Police & Communities Together (PACT)
We are aware of local concern over crime and juvenile nuisance and fully support the newly launched PACT scheme. The decision of Senior Police Officials to improve facilities on the existing Police Station site in Tarleton and increase the police presence in our villages is most welcome. The Southern Division is continuing to exceed its high performance targets and local Conservatives welcome the police commitment to our Tarleton residents.

Improved Sports Facilities at your Schools
Both the Community Primary and Tarleton High Schools have recently benefited from excellent new community sports facilities. This is a testament to a strong united effort with the late Robert Hodge, supported by the local Conservative team, playing a vital role.

Our School Managers are to be applauded for their commitment to our community. We will continue to support them.

Street Scene
Our streets are cleaner. Our environment is improving – Conservatives have given a priority to improving our village environment and aim to continue giving this service much needed attention.

Our re-cycling rates have increased in less than 3 years from 7% to 35% due to the priority we have given it. Despite teething problems our newly introduced blue box scheme is proving as successful as our green wheelie bins and blue bag services.

Relief at Last
Work will begin within a few weeks to refurbish our public toilets in the Over 60’s Car Park. Another example of Conservative investment in local community facilities.

In our villages we already have sufficient development for our needs. We have introduced a moratorium in order to protect the whole of the District from over development. We listened to your views and we have acted accordingly.

The candidate
Jim Kay, the Conservative candidate for West Lancashire District Council, is a retired senior Police Officer and has lived in the village for the past 22 years. During his working life he has been in and around Tarleton since the early 1960’s.

John Mee and Rosie Evans look forward to welcoming Jim as a new member of their successful team. With Jim’s valuable input and professional experience they want to make even more improvements to the services provided in our villages. This they see as a continuation of Robert Hodge's’ lifelong work.

The Conservatives priorities are “Services First”
A vote for Labour means less for our villages.

Jim is also standing in the Tarleton Parish Council Election
