Working for Sleaford and North Hykeham
Local Conservatives are working hard to ensure that this part of Lincolnshire benefits fully from economic recovery. We're campaigning to improve and upgrade our infrastructure and roads throughout the constituency and to ensure that the Lincoln Eastern Bypass is built as quickly as possible.
Conservative-controlled county and district councils are working closely together to achieve these critical improvements, as well as to encourage enterprise throughout the Constituency in order to create jobs and support real wealth creation.
We are the only constituency in Lincolnshire which does not have its own hospital and local Conservatives are therefore on the alert for any threat to the future of Grantham and Lincoln Hospitals. We will continue to fight to ensure that local people get the good local public services they deserve.
