Guilford Borough Elections - 5th May 2011

Next month Guildford will be going to the ballot box to elect who you want to be your councilors on Guildford Borough Council. Guildford Lib Dems has always been committed to representing you, and believe it is now more important than ever to consult you on your council services. We have been all around Guildford surveying residents to find out your priorities on borough services and are please to announce our key manifesto policies.

Listen to you
Your Council Tax should be spent on YOUR priorities. With government funding to help freeze council tax we want to spend your money on services you have told us you need!

Clean-up our streets
We will improve street cleansing, refuse collection and recycling services. Many of you have told us that you want better refuse and recycling services, as well as cleaner streets.

Stop the Tory waste
Last year alone Conservatives wasted £3/4 million of your council tax money on aborted projects such as the Bedford Road redevelopment.

Provide more affordable homes
We will use Council Housing Reserves to provide affordable homes for local people and help mroe of the 4,000 families on Guildford's housing waiting list. With careful planning to protect our green belt and prevent over crowding.

Protect Services for older people
We will maintain Borough Council services which benefit older people and reinstate a town centre meeting place for older people and the wider community.

Our candidates can now be found on our website - www.guildfordlibdems.org.uk - We still want to hear your views and opinions, don't hesitate to contact one of the candidates or email us at: office@guildfordlibdems.org.uk
