Our eight point plan for Peterborough

15 Mar 2024
Cllr Nick Sandford

For 23 years, under Conservative rule, our city went significantly backwards. Our City Council became over-centralised and secretive, we failed to act quickly enough to address the climate emergency, our services were cut back, while anti-social behaviour increased and lack of affordable housing became a major issue.

In November last year, following the defection of eight Conservative councillors, opposition councillors were at last able to act and remove the Conservative council leader and put in place a new administration run by the “Peterborough First” group.  They have started work on sorting out some of the problems created in the previous two decades of Conservative rule. 

But in May this year, we have elections for 22 of the 60 seats on Peterborough City Council.  So this is where you the people of Peterborough have your say.  So you may ask, why should you give your vote to the Liberal Democrats? 

In summary, the Liberal Democrats want to create a fair, safe and sustainable Peterborough, in which everyone is equally empowered to fulfil their ambitions and live a healthy life.

To that end, we have put together an “Eight Point Plan for Peterborough”,  which sets out what Lib Dem priorities will be if we find ourselves in position of influence after the City Council elections in May.

  1. Ensure that the Council works with the Police to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour across our city and make our communities safer . We want to see the Council's enforcement officers work in residential areas across the city and not just in the city centre.

More information on our “Eight Point Plan for Peterborough” can be found on our local Liberal Democrat website at www.peterboroughlibdems.org.uk .  

Liberal Democrat councillors believe in informing, consulting and empowering the people that they represent and work hard all year round to achieve this.  But we also have a vision for the Peterborough that we want to create.  If you share that vision, please support us and join us in striving to make our vision a reality.
