The people of Lye have been let down by their local Councillors who haven't been able to bring investment and regeneration to the area. Lye used to be, and should continue to be, a regional attraction for people to come and experience the various pubs and restaurants in the town. Local residents and businesses deserve better.
I have teamed up with local residents, campaigners, and Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, to champion the cause of Lye and try to resolve the problems that have been raised with me since becoming your Member of Parliament. We will be campaigning for greater street cleaning, new CCTV cameras, investment and regeneration to build new homes and build stronger relationships in the community.
I am pleased that there has been real progress recently. Dudley Council are preparing a bid for Lye to receive a share of the second round of the Government's £4.8 billion Levelling-Up Fund, which will improve transport connectivity, regenerate the High Street, and bring derelict land back into use.
I want to hear from you directly about how you think we can improve Lye and your priorities for investment and regeneration. There is so much to be proud of in Lye and I am determined to get better outcomes for the town and its people. You can complete my survey here.
There is so much to be proud of in Lye. Together, we will work to make sure people know this and get better outcomes for Lye and it's people.
