Cambridge Liberal Democrats launched their manifesto for the city council elections today (Thursday April 8).

The launch took place at the Lib Dems' election office at 1 Wellington Court, Cambridge.

The party is preparing to contest the 17 seats on Cambridge City Council which are up for election on May 6.

Ian Nimmo-Smith, Cambridge City Council leader said: "In our manifesto, we renew our vision for Cambridge and our commitment to fairness in these challenging economic times.

"We are celebrating 10 years in control of the city council and during that time we have transformed the basic services; we promise to fight to protect these services and continue to work with residents to shape the way the city develops."

Sian Reid, Cambridge City Executive Councillor for Climate Change and Growth said: "We will continue our commitment to providing affordable homes close to transport links and nurturing the local economy.

"At the same time, we will insist on environmentally sustainable solutions to ensure fairness for the city's future generations and reinforce our commitment to tackling climate change."

Julian Huppert, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Cambridge said: "This is an exciting time for Cambridge. The city is growing and thriving and it is vital that we continue to give a fair deal to local people so that they have direct input in the choices that are made.
