Lib Dem Plans for a Better Cambridgeshire

April 5, 2005 8:55 PM

Cambridgeshire Liberal Democrats have launched their manifesto for the 2005 County Council Elections, to be held on the same day as the General Election - Thursday May 5th.

A Liberal Democrat-run Cambridgeshire will …

  • Increase funding for education, towards the national average
  • Increase the number of police on our streets as fast as the budget increases
  • Invest in preventative social services rather than waiting for crises
  • Increase funding to the Youth Service by £ 1 million
  • Make the bus network more reliable, efficient and competitive
  • Provide good value for taxpayers' money
  • Keep existing libraries open, extend opening hours and improve book stock
  • Give the public the right to ask questions at Council meetings
  • Promote schemes to support walking and cycling
  • Oppose the Guided Bus project
  • Provide more grants for voluntary organisations

The full manifesto is available in the "Download area" of this site (see menu to the left).
