OUR POSITIVE VISION FOR SURREY

Surrey Conservatives: Standing Up For You

Surrey Conservatives are delivering a strong economy, great schools and are investing in our local infrastructure, all this in a time of financial austerity.

Growing our economy

We have invested to help grow our economy by 20% in four years. With more young people starting apprenticeships than ever unemployment is low and we have brought superfast broadband to over 80,000 homes and businesses. We will resurface and treat more roads and pavements, bring broadband to another 5,000 properties, increase waste recycling and support our young people into education, training and employment.

A great start in life

Surrey's 400 schools are some of the best in the country with 93% rated 'Good' or 'outstanding'. Together with teachers, parents and governors we will keep standards high. We've spent millions on extra classrooms and plan to create 11,000 more places by 2021. Every child must have a school place. We will safeguard all our children particularly those in need of support and protection.

Live well, live longer

Here in Surrey we are living well and living longer. By 2022 older people will be some 20% of the population. We will fight for the funding we need for Social Care. We will bring health and social care together so that people can return home from hospital sooner and stay well at home.

Great public services

Keeping people safe by working with the police to cut crime and maintaining our excellent fire service. We will promote digital technology so you can access Council services online and on your mobile. We will protect our stunning countryside by investing in flood protection schemes.
