Liberal Democrat priorities for East Sussex County Council
In just over two weeks’ time there is an opportunity to choose a new County Council. Please find more information about your local Lib Dem candidates here: http://har0ld.org.uk/en/page/your-2013-east-sussex-county-council-candidates.
If elected to run the Council, the Liberal Democrat Group promises:
‘To tackle Tory waste. Despite their constant claims of ‘good housekeeping’ large sums are wasted on unnecessary consultants, external venue hire, and internal publications, too often printed not emailed.
More ‘20 is plenty’ speed limits outside schools, play areas and other high risk areas and work with the Police to enforce them.
To build business investment and jobs, encouraging Councils at all levels to work together with business groups as has proved so successful in Lib Dem-controlled Eastbourne.
To safeguard adult social care to reduce anxiety and hardship among the most vulnerable, and increase respite care.
To invest available capital in new school buildings to reduce the un-acceptable reliance on mobile classrooms – 183 at the last count across the County, many well past their expected lifespan.
To do everything possible to promote a green agenda, not because a focus group tells us it will gain votes, but because concern for the environment has always been a core policy of Liberal Democrats.’
