Newcastle Conservatives launch new website

Thank you for your support at the last election. Because of you, David Cameron is the first Conservative Prime Minister in 13 years and the Government’s plans to build a strong economy and a big society are in full swing. Now, to help us communicate with you, we've launched this new local website.

Giving communities access to local crime data

The Conservative-led Coalition Government believes in transparency, it has put all crime and anti-social behaviour on the internet. This means that any local resident can see exactly how much crime is happening, and enable communities to be able to hold the police to account.
