    This Conservative Government has lost touch with the difficulties you and I face on a daily basis. Local people are worried about what the future holds for our country and our community.
    The cost of living emergency is devastating and only likely to get worse. Crime is on the rise. NHS waiting times have never been higher.
    Meanwhile, the Conservatives have been fighting amongst themselves rather than standing up for Derby.
    We deserve much better than this. It's time for real change and a new direction.

    Under the planning agreement for the Hackwood estate, after the first 300 houses have been sold a bridge was to be built over the cycle greenway to link the estate through to Ladybank Road.

    We call on Derby City Council to get the developers to fulfill the planning commitments and build the foot and cycling bridge to link Hackwood to Ladybank Road.

    Today, in Derby, Starmer's Labour councillors allowed Boris Johnson's Tories to take leadership of Derby City Council. At the City Council's AGM Tory and Labour councillors voted together to give themselves key positions of power in the Council.

    Despite the Conservatives having only 18 seats, just over a third of the councillors, they have been given control of the majority of Council decisions with all the seats on the Cabinet. They have also gave key chairs and vice chair positions on Scrutiny Boards and Regulatory Committees (Planning and Licensing) to Conservatives - making it easier for the Conservatives to 'mark their own homework'.

    Nick has been active in Mickleover getting things done. Vote for Nick on 5th May and help him improve and drive investment into Mickleover.

    We have had enough of the Tory lies over Covid, partygate and more. Taxes and living costs are rising so that many are having to choose between heating and eating. The Tory run council also knows how to waste your money.
