Election Platform 2024

Cambridge Liberal Democrats have published below our platform for the elections to Cambridge City Council on May 2nd, in which we are fielding candidates for all 14 seats across the city: 

The case for electing Liberal Democrat city councillors on May 2nd is compelling:

  • End local Labour complacency
    They are no longer willing to listen to the day-to-day needs of city residents that don’t fit their top-down view of what’s good for us. Dismissive responses indicate they are now above considering other ideas or even defending their own approach. Despite millions still piling up in council coffers, basic council services are not getting the attention that people need
  • Keep debate alive 
    Apparently tired of reaching decisions through discussion in cross-party committees, Labour is now on the point of closing them down so they can take decisions amongst only selected Labour councillors. This is not a formula for robust decisions nor for democratic expression across the city.
  • Push back on Michael Gove’s power grab for Cambridge’s future.
    The government has announced a new Growth Company and a Development Corporation to shape the future of our area – and it’s getting only a timid response from Labour. Cambridge needs more housing, but it is best delivered by locally elected representatives, not imposed by bureaucrats. Our plan provides a better way.
