Tandridge District Council has been run by a Conservative administration since 2000. They have run out of steam, lost any sense of direction, run down key departments, especially Planning, and came close to bankruptcy last summer.
The Liberal Democrats have driven forward the building of council homes for local people, the development of Quadrant House in Caterham - supporting local business and employment and worked hard to secure proper parking enforcement. They successfully declared a Climate Emergency and action plan.
Vote Liberal Democrat on 6 May and you’ll get a local champion who will get things done in your community. You’ll get a cleaner, greener neighbourhood where recovery comes first and local people are listened to.
Here are 3 reasons why we need more Liberal Democrat Councillors this May:
All over the country, there are hundreds of thousands of people living in areas where Liberal Democrats are running the council and are in charge of public money and budgets of more than £2bn.
From Cumbria to Cornwall, from York to Eastbourne, to Bath to Bedford. In Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Surrey, in Devon and the Midlands, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Hampshire and London, and many many more places as well.
Last week Tandridge District Council submitted proposals to upgrade Quadrant House in Caterham Valley. The plans form part of a £4.9m investment from Coast to Capital local enterprise partnership to support economic growth and development in Caterham Valley. The proposals include a complete revamp to the outside of the building, signage update, the addition of a roof terrace with landscaping, and the introduction of a living wall.
Statement from Ed Davey, Leader of the Liberal Democrats:
“This is the public health policy the Prime Minister should have announced before Christmas, but yet again, Boris Johnson ducked the difficult decisions, failed to listen to experts and acted too late.
"Just yesterday morning Johnson was telling parents that schools were safe and children should definitely go. Today he is telling us that they must all move to remote learning but without any proper future plan.
“The Prime Minister’s failure to act earlier means we are seeing record numbers of new infections, a rising death rate, hospitals overwhelmed and NHS and care staff exhausted.
Liberal Democrats demand better for Britain. We want to give all our children a brighter future in a fairer Britain where people are decent to each other, with good schools and hospitals, a clean environment and an innovative economy.
What we stand for in 2019.
