What you get from Liberal Democrat Councillors – a record of action

Liberal Democrats around the country are taking to the streets or phones to get out the vote. Here’s Lib Dem HQ in sunny Ludlow. Ludlow HQ

From the Liberal Democrat website:

The Liberal Democrats are building a stronger economy in a fairer society, enabling everyone to get on in life.

Our councillors have proud records locally, standing up for local people:

  • No library will be closed in any Lib Dem-run or Lib Dem-led authorities this year
    • Northumberland County Council, Portsmouth and Stockport are opening new ones
  • Liberal Democrats are helping businesses and customers to get their economies moving with investment in roads and public transport.
    • Northumberland Lib Dems have filled 34,000 potholes last year
    • Bedford Liberal Democrats are investing in its rural bus network with the introduction of Sunday and evening bus services.
  • Our councils are boosting public services – with schemes that generate income or savings for residents:
    • Eastbourne’s Solarbourne Partnership generating an annual income of £200-250,000
    • Colchester’s solar panels giving free electricity to 800 tenants and an income of £70,000 p.a. to residents
    • South Lakeland’s pioneering energy switching to better deal on electricity helping thousands of residents save hundreds of pounds on their fuel bills.
  • Liberal Democrats are focusing on jobs
    • Eastleigh is creating 500 new jobs at the Rose Bowl
    • Eastbourne’s investment in their town centre has seen empty shops fall to nearly half the national average and attracted a massive expansion of the Arndale shopping centre bringing 500 jobs there too.
    • Bath & North East Somerset’s Guildhall Creative co-working Hub is helping new micro business start-up
    • Oadby and Wigston’s renovation project turned a derelict factory into small start-up units for businesses
  • Liberal Democrats are investing in homes with the 200 new council houses being built in Portsmouth and 650 in Cambridge.

Liberal Democrats listen to local people and give them a voice in decisions made about their communities. In power we work to strengthen the local economy while ensuring we protect the services people most value, and to protect the most vulnerable in society.

No apologies for the unadulterated plug. Liberal Democrat councillors have a strong record of delivering for their local communities and listening to local residents. If there are elections in your area today, do make sure your voice is heard.  And if you want to help get the Liberal Democrat vote out today, you can do so here.
