    Slough Liberal Democrats' team of candidates for the elections to Slough Borough Council in May 2016 includes a former councillor and others with a record of working in their communities.

    Robert Plimmer, former Councillor for Foxborough Ward, said, "I am very pleased to be standing in my home ward of Cippenham Meadows where I have lived for the last 19 years. Sadly Cippenham is suffering like many parts of Slough from a Labour-run Council that doesn't listen to local residents. The Council spends large amounts of our money on unwanted traffic schemes all over Slough, including in Langley, Station Road Burnham in Autumn 2015, and Tuns Lane/Copthorne roundabout. Then the same Labour councillors made cuts in the support for buses and youth clubs in Cippenham and across Slough and withdrew the grants from effective local charities such as Age Concern and Citizens Advice Bureau. Labour also massively increased charges for hiring sports pitches."

    Robert Plimmer said, 'It would have been so much better had Slough's Labour-run Council listened to local residents before closing Station Road. I welcome the Council's recent announcement of a partial back-down and the re-opening of Station Road in one direction. However, this partial back-down may not go far enough and looks like it might be delayed which will cause even more serious traffic chaos for residents as described below.
