Say Yes to the Bypass

No Bypass? No Investment In Jobs, Skills & Futures

Our Board has one voice. We believe in the bypass. For the businesses already in our county and those we need to attract. We’ve built the houses. We’ve got great people. But to attract the businesses to create the skilled jobs they deserve we need to address the city’s congestion.

With government funding and plans in place it’s ready to happen – but our new Council have pressed pause. This is a once in a generation opportunity.

Join us and let the Council know you share our commitment to the future of our county. Say Yes To The Bypass.

(of course there are many more!)

1. Congestion

It’s terrible now. It’s going to get worse. Businesses looking to invest will go elsewhere

2. Jobs

It’s not rocket science but the skilled jobs we need will head elsewhere

3. Pay

We’re already under paid in the county. We’ll be saying goodbye to higher paid jobs

4. Ageing Population

New investment will help bring in the younger people our county needs

5. Wellbeing

The county needs funds to support us all in our later years. Essential revenue new investment will bring will be lost.
