● Creating safer streets - repairing our roads and pavements, supporting 20 mph and Residents' Parking Zones, fighting crime and anti-social behaviour;

● Maintaining balanced communities - providing affordable family homes and managing houses in multiple occupation;

● Championing families - supporting schools, rebuilding the Youth Service, improving playgrounds, defending libraries;

● 'Greening' our city through recycling and alternative energy; extending cycleways and bus services, reducing congestion through park and ride;

● Cutting bureaucracy to protect vulnerable people, key services and jobs while keeping Council Tax low.

Liberal Democrat councillors will: listen, keep in touch all year round (not just at election times), promise only what we are confident we can deliver.
