Hull Liberal Democrats' positive plan for Hull
There is a real possibility of a Lib Dem Council in Hull from May.
Check out our 8-point plan for Hull. For additional info click here.
A safer Hull for all to enjoy – How safe residents feel in their home and local community is really important. We will re-introduce the Community Safety Fund, axed by Labour in 2011, to support communities in their fight against crime and anti-social behaviour.
Helping the city to recover after Covid19 – We have all seen the effects of Covid19 on our city. It has been the toughest of years. Now we need the council to take the lead on getting the city back on its feet. We will make sure there is a plan to help the city recover, one that has the interests of the most vulnerable residents at its heart. This will mean more support for those helping those suffering domestic abuse, substance abuse or poor mental health.
A greener and cleaner Hull – We want to see clean streets and tidy neighbourhoods. We will invest almost £1million extra into making Hull greener and cleaner. This will see more ‘Bring out your rubbish days’ and access to recycling centres 7 days a week.
Local highstreets for the future – The local high street has proven how valuable it is to local communities in the last year. We will provide more funding to help breathe new life into the heart of local communities, helping local traders face the difficult trading situation head on.
Spending Hull’s money wisely – How the council spends taxpayers’ money is vital, particularly when times are tough. The Hull Liberal Democrats would cut the cloth accordingly, making savings from councillor’s special responsibility allowances and would not have raised council tax by the same amount as Labour. The Liberal Democrats will also scrap the council’s inhouse magazine, “Love Hull”.
A Council that listens – We would make sure the council listens to and works with the residents of Hull. For example, we would establish a Citizen’s Assembly so resident’s voices can be heard and acted upon.
Better private accommodation conditions – Too many people are living in poor housing conditions. We will get tough on rogue landlords, making sure they bring their properties up to standard.
Activities for young people– Young people have suffered a year’s worth of lockdown as well. They need activities to get them active and engaged with society again. We will invest more in young people’s activities and parks across the city.
