Liberal Democrat Beliefs & Priorities

Liberal Democrats believe in an open, optimistic, caring, diverse and tolerant Britain.  We champion the rights of the individual to freedom and equality.

We believe in a fair society and a sound economy and seek solutions to local and national needs based on carefully analysed evidence, not on prejudice, tradition or self-interest.

Our Priorities

  • To provide good quality housing – energy efficient, of a good design and the type people want in the right locations
  • To set up a housing company to invest in building local market and affordable homes rather than investing in commercial properties outside the district.
  • To improve support to village neighbourhood plan teams and work to reduce the impact of major developments,
  • To make sure planning enforcement is effective. Rules are not there to be broken
  • To invest in renewable energy and energy storage to combat climate change
  • To improve public transport, particularly to our more remote rural locations, and to increase cycling facilities.
  • To protect the environment, our vital heritage and open spaces and our special quality of life in Mid Suffolk
  • To encourage recycling and work towards a food waste collection and a reduction in single use plastic
