Darren Jones: No Excuse For Exams Fiasco

Writing in his regular Bristol Post column, Darren called on the Government to get a grip on its levelling up agenda and its handling of the Coronavirus pandemic. Ahead of a the most difficult Winter in peacetime, we don’t have the luxury of continued incompetence. The Government must do much better when anticipating and addressing the challenges our country faces. In his column, Darren gave an update on the work being done in Bristol to address the recession and his tour of essential services in Bristol North West.

Travel West: A37/A4018 Transport Corridor Engagement

Until September 11th, Travel West are looking for your thoughts and feedback as they prepare to plan improvements to travel corridors across Bristol, starting with Bus Route 2. This route goes straight through our constituency and connects  Henleaze, Southmead and Henbury to the city centre and Cribbs Causeway

These improvements go further than improving bus travel in Bristol though, it’s aim is to help people get around Bristol on foot, by bike, wheelchair and buggy too. It’s about making it easier, safer and quicker to travel in Bristol.

With social distancing in place, Travel West have set up a virtual engagement show-room to look at the route and propose feedback. This is an opportunity to contribute to this project at the ground floor before the formal plan has been written.

Darren Calls For Net-Zero To Be Put At The Heart Of Our Economy Recovery

Writing in Public Sector Executive, Darren argued that regional and local leaders should be unlocked by Whitehall to implement bespoke economic recovery plans that are net-zero ready. Pitching economic stimulus and environmental policy against each other is a false choice; net-zero policymaking is the best way to recover, grow and future-proof the UK’s economy. We have diverse talent-pool of regional and local leaders that are able to tailor energy policy, green initiatives and recovery packages that work for their geopolitical environment. As demonstrated in this pandemic, one-size-fits-all approaches aren’t effective in the long-term. Instead, we need experts contributing net-zero solutions at all levels of government.
