Waveney, located in North East Suffolk, is the most easterly constituency in Britain and comprises Lowestoft, the market towns of Beccles and Bungay, the former fishing village of Kessingland and numerous other villages.
Peter Aldous’s top priority is to help attract diverse and interesting jobs into Waveney. He comments: “In the first instance national government must cut red tape and simplify the taxation system so as to provide every incentive for people to set up their own businesses. In Waveney I believe that we should make use of those skills that are already here. For instance the renewable energy sector provides an exciting opportunity for utilising the skills built up over many years in the offshore oil and gas industry.
Whilst farming, fishing and tourism will be different in the future than they have been in the past, the government must help them to diversify and develop in more varied ways.
With regard to tourism, Lowestoft is in a unique position being the most easterly point in Britain, with access to the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads and the sea, whilst Beccles is the southern gateway to the Broads. These are advantages that we must not shirk from extolling in promoting the area as a great holiday destination”.
