Liberal Democrats Announce Top Six County Priorities

March 6, 2013 11:30 AM

The Liberal Democrats have announced their top six priorities that will take them through to this year's County Council Elections in May. The official launch of their full Manifesto will take place early next week.

The top six priorities that the Liberal Democrats have coined 'six-to-fix' are listed as follows:

1. Repairing our roads, filling in potholes

2. Growing our economy, investing in jobs

3. Opposing a waste incinerator, protecting the environment

4. Freezing on-street parking charges, cutting residents' parking permits

5. Making sure we can trust what we eat, protecting trading standards

6. Creating a new joint fire and ambulance service, for a safer county

Further details of these and other policy areas will be published in the Gloucestershire Liberal Democrat 2013 Manifesto entitled 'Caring for Gloucestershire'. The launch of this manifesto will take place on the steps of Shire Hall at 10am on Monday 11 March.

Speaking in advance of the full manifesto publication, Leader Cllr. Jeremy Hilton said:

"Our 'six-to-fix' priorities will benefit all those who live and work in Gloucestershire not just a select few. These top priorities along with our other plans included in the manifesto have been brought together by listening to the people of this county.

"We believe that more can be done to improve the quality of services provided by Gloucestershire County Council. Our manifesto to be launched on Monday is a plan that will help people across the county understand who we are, what we represent and what is important.

"This manifesto spells out our county policies taking us up to the County Elections and beyond. We believe our manifesto highlights that a Liberal Democrat run-council will not cut corners. A Liberal Democrat run-council will commit to delivering a better future for everyone in Gloucestershire."
