Bedford Borough Manifesto 2019

You can download a full copy of the manifesto here.

Bedford Borough Liberal Democrats have a proven record of action in Bedford Borough since 2009. Our key themes and ideas will become our promise to you to deliver more so that the interests of Bedford Borough residents are looked after.

We want Bedford Borough to be the best place to live, work and relax while every resident has a stake in their own community and can participate in local decision making.

Bedford Borough Liberal Democrats commit to giving every resident the opportunity to succeed, to be free, open and tolerant of others and to look after the environment we live in both now and for future generations.

Local Liberal Democrats have successfully protected key frontline council services in these difficult times. We have delivered
many things for the residents of Bedford Borough:

■ A brand new bus station
■ The final section of Bedford's western bypass
■ Replaced all our temporary classrooms with permanent buildings
■ Provided the new Riverside Bedford development
■ Re-introduced a town centre cinema
■ Regenerated our town centre car parks
■ Protected rural bus services
■ Introduced average speed cameras
■ Introduced 2 hours free parking on Saturdays and all-day Sunday free parking, and
■ Provided new jobs with major manufacturers, supermarket chains and leisure companies coming to the area.

The Liberal Democrat Team will work to keep protecting and supporting people, especially the most vulnerable
in our Borough.

We will Stand Up for Bedford in the face of threats of permanent train cuts, reductions to our health services and
insisting that central government provides the means to ensure that sustainable communities are built with the
necessary infrastructure and community facilities at the heart of any housing development.

We will protect our environment and make sure that Bedford Borough has a strong voice, protecting and
standing up for those services that Bedford Borough deserves. I and my team will work hard for every resident in
the Borough all year round.

The May 2019 local election is your opportunity to make Bedford Borough even better. You can download copy for the full manifesto here.
