Manifesto – The Liberal Democrat vision for North Somerset 2011-2015

A Liberal Democrat Council will work with residents, organisations and businesses to make North Somerset a better place for all.
We will strive to create a district with excellent services, where residents live safely and prosper in thriving communities.

“The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no-one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.”

Adult Social Services and Housing: THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL NEED FOR MORE AFFORDABLE HOMES in North Somerset. We will find more effective ways to provide these and fight for all new homes to be more environmentally friendly. Liberal Democrats recognise the increasing numbers of elderly residents within our community and the need to support independent living for elderly and disabled residents.

Finance and Corporate Services: NORTH SOMERSET COUNCIL’s REVENUE BUDGET for the coming year is in excess of £300million and the capital programme is £80million. We aim to deliver quality services while keeping costs low for people in North Somerset.

Development and the Environment: OUR VISION IS FOR A GREENER NORTH SOMERSET where residents and visitors get the maximum benefit from the beauty and opportunities of the natural local environment. We are also committed to minimising the harmful effects of our energy demands and waste production.

Children and Young People’s Services: EVERYONE IN NORTH SOMERSET SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY to access high quality education so they can achieve their maximum potential.

Our Crime Prevention Commitment: FOR PEOPLE in North Somerset, the level of crime and anti-social behaviour is one of the most important factors in having a good place to live. Liberal Democrats are part of the local communities and share that concern. The council can make a stronger contribution to tackling crime and anti-social behaviour.
