Promoting local Heritage

our enviroment, our planeT, One chance

Our enviroment is critical to the air we breath, the food we eat and the water we drink. Liberal Democrats are commited to protecting it, we acknowledge only have one planet and for too long it has been suffering from out mistakes. 

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children

If we are going to succeed with our one change to save life on earth as we know it then we must take action. Liberal Democrats are commited to doing what is neccesary to protect our enviroment from Climate change and from the mistakes of the past that as a society we sadly continue to make. 

Acknowledging the Emergency
The evidence is clear, we are facing a Climate emergency of unprecedented scale. We must be clear Climate Change is caused by Humans and is the biggest challenge of our time.
Preparing for climate disruption
Its too late to think we can turn back the clock. Whilst we may be able to limit climate change we must ensure that all new development is built with potential disruption in mind, whilst retrofiting existing development to cope with the coming changes.
Focusing on making the changes needed
We need to stop emitting green house gases before it is too late. This means we need to take radical action to decarbonise our transport, housing and economy with a sense of wartime urgency.

our plan locally

  • Aim to be the first carbon negative council in the UK - net zero isn't enough. 
  • Rollout electric charging to all council car-parks and properties.
  • Require all new building to be Carbon neutral to get planning permission from 2025 onwards.
  • Roll out a Clean-Air zone in our town centres with revenue raised to go to grants to support low income familes in going carbon netural then net zero. 
  • Support the Hydro Electric green centre by the River Dee
  • Put an end to business illegally polluting our rivers through robust enforcement
We need to have the ambition to make the radical changes needed to protect our way of life, and ensure that the world we hand to our children and grand-children is one where they can live and thrive. The Labour and Tory council currently lacks the vision and will to take this action. Liberal Democrats would not.

OUR nATIONAL Campaigns

The Liberal Democrats are a campaigning party. Only by getting out and talking to local people can we find out about the issues that affect them and when people tell us they want to see a particular change, we work to make that happen.

The other parties think they can just rely on your vote at election time, it's Liberal Democrats who work hard to make a difference all year round.
