The Liberal Democrats' Residents' Charter

Liberal Democrats will prioritise scarce resources for those most in need and maintaining and improving the quality of life in our neighbourhoods.

We will:

  • Keep Council Tax low, cut out waste and make sure your money is used to support the most essential services.

  • Campaign to boost jobs in the city, promote apprenticeships and minimise redundancies.

  • Fix potholes, not just paint them, getting the job done right first time. Our Litter & Graffiti blitz will deliver more attractive neighbourhoods .

  • Fight crime and anti-social behaviour, prioritising safer communities, campaigning to keep a local beat team based in our community.

  • Improve the bus network, and enhance the cycle network.

  • Protect family homes, enforce against planning breaches vigorously and require all Houses in Multiple Occupation to be licensed..

  • Campaign for safer streets, with 20 m.ph. limits in residential streets where the residents want it, and a clamp down on pavement cycling.

  • Boost recycling, renewable energy and energy conservation, while saying No to a massive, unsustainable Biomass plant.

  • Keep our drinking water safe, saying No to Fluoride.

  • Back Fair Parking charges, restoring free first resident's passes.

  • Promote decent play area equipment in every neighbourhood.

  • Take no important decisions about you, without you.
