Principles and Priorities for the 2016 Local Elections

Slough Council should listen first and spend more sensibly

"All the people of Cippenham who responded to the first phase of our recent survey said that they would like to see councillors elected who listened more to local residents."

This is the message from Robert Plimmer as he launched the Liberal Democrats' campaign document for the May 2016 elections: The way forward for Slough: listening locally and spending more sensibly.

Robert continued, "These are the results from the first streets surveyed, but the message is very clear: 100% wanted councillors who listened more, and 86% said Slough's Labour-run Council had not consulted residents properly about recent traffic schemes. Many of the issues we are highlighting are the same as last year because Labour are continuing to make the same mistakes, but just doing so on a larger scale, and still not listening to local people. When money is tight it is even more important that money is spent wisely and projects are properly managed."

Robert Plimmer said, "the 2016 Lib Dem election document sets out the main principles that will govern the Lib Dem approach to the work of Slough Borough Council. Key principles for Lib Dems on Slough Council are listening first, spending more sensibly, accountability and cooperation."

Robert went on to identify three priority areas. He said, "We will work tirelessly for a healthier, safer and greener town. On each of these areas we also consulted the report from the UK Youth Parliament to get the views of young people."

The Slough Liberal Democrats document for the 2016 Slough Borough Council elections sets out our principles and priorities in more detail, and includes a one page summary.
