Better public transport links from outlying areas- especially Denshaw. Anyone who doesn’t drive is stranded and unable to get to/from work in the evenings or back from an evening out. To use the tram network people have to drive to Shaw or Newhey. A link bus from the villages to the tram would be very useful.
Also the cost of multiple companies running the buses that do operate is prohibitive to low earners and younger people. We have a real opportunity to enable the elderly and non-drivers to navigate as well as an opportunity to improve public transport links enabling commuters to ditch their cars.
Aside from transport, more facilities for vulnerable people are crucial. Enabling young people to meet in accessible places with safe and productive opportunities as well as enable older people and disabled people to be better connected to others.
Finally, more environmental investment- community tree planting, fruit alleys along the Delph – Donkey, community vegetable gardens etc
