Every authority needs an active opposition and the Lib Dems have a good record in West Oxfordshire. In March, Lib Dem councillors stood up for the Citizens’ Advice Bureau when the Tories tried to slash the budget. It was Lib Dems who convinced the Tories that they should look at opening a recycling facility at Greystones to replace Dean Pit. The Liberal Democrats want a better future for everyone in our area, which includes:
  • Enough affordable houses so that the next generation can afford to rent or buy a home locally
  • Roads and pavements maintained properly
  • Higher building standards, to reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions
  • Better recycling for businesses.  What;'s the point of us all recycling at home when busioness throw away tons of rubbish each day because there is no choice for them?
  • Zero-landfill targets. This will be tough to achieve but there is nothing wrong with having targets to aim for
  • Planning policy that supports local food production, encouraging jobs and sustainability 
Liberal Democrats work hard all year round and our record of activity is clear across the country. Lib Dem councillors offer loal advocacy and tough opposition in Ofordshire and I want to support that proud record here.
