• Gate at Warrington Council Bldg
    Article: Feb 25, 2020

    The Liberal Democrats on Warrington Council voted against the Labour administration's budget at the Council meeting on 24 February.

    They proposed an amendment calling for more openness and transparency and more consultation but this was rejected by Labour.

    Finance Spokesperson Cllr Ian Marks said, "The national economy is stagnant and austerity is certainly not over. It has gone on far too long and the cuts are too deep. The Conservative Government has failed to deliver on business rates reform, the Fairer Funding Review and the much delayed Green Paper on Social Care reform.

  • Tim Martland at Lymm Dam zebra crossing (edited)
    Article: Feb 12, 2020

    After a good deal of pressure from local councillors, a zebra crossing has at last been installed by The Dam in Lymm.

    Local resident and Liberal Democrat campaigner Tim Martland says, "I live nearby and know how dangerous it can be for people crossing the road between the Dam and the Dingle. I welcome the crossing but the problem has been that the job has taken too long to complete. It has been left more dangerous than before with no belishas working. I have been told it will take up to two weeks for the electricity to be connected.

  • Local Liberal Democrats taking soundings in Lymm village centre
    Article: Feb 12, 2020

    Lymm Liberal Democrats have been out in the centre of the village talking to residents about their priorities for the village over the next few years.

    Parish Councillor Graham Gowland says, "Local councillors all have their views on what they think is important, but you cannot beat actually asking residents what they think. Local elections are coming up in May and we want to make sure our priorities fit in with what people feel strongly about. Warrington Council is struggling to provide all the services we need due to Government funding cuts so Lymm Parish Council is having to do more. We also need to understand the areas where residents want us to put pressure on Warrington Council for better services."

    Councillor Ryan Bate has expressed his concerns that the Borough Council are conducting detailed discussions around the Garden Suburb concept of the Local Plan before the plan has been agreed.

    Speaking at a meeting of the Supporting the Local Economy policy committee, Councillor Ryan Bate raised his concerns to fellow councillors and senior officers about the update that 'detailed discussions have commenced in earnest with Homes England in relation to project viability and deliverability'. Cllr Bate stated that he was deeply uncomfortable that this work is going on before the Local Plan has been finalised.
