Derby Lib Dems launch their 2015 manifesto at the Derby ArenaDerby Liberal Democrats today launched their manifesto for Derby City Council in front of the new Derby Arena.

The manifesto was produced using an open consultation with Derby residents, allowing anyone to contribute ideas for how they would like to see Derby run.

It includes plans to:

  • Reactivate the city's Sports Strategy that delivered the arena and was developing a replacement for Moorways until cancelled by Labour
  • Maximise the use of Derby's performance venues and bring more events to Derby
  • Provide fair and effective funding for the whole of Derby in consultation with local communities, and support community groups who wish to improve their areas
  • Reverse Labour's drop in recycling rates
  • Improve Derby's roads for all users - drivers, cyclists, public transport users and pedestrians

Derby Liberal Democrats group leader Cllr Hilary Jones said "This manifesto offers a far-reaching vision for improving all aspects of life in Derby. Labour's leadership of Derby City Council hasn't seen the progress they promised. They spend all their effort not on trying to improve Derby but complaining about government. Derby residents are fed up with Labour's neglect. Derby needs a positive vision for how to move forwards, which I'm proud to offer to the people of Derby."
