Demanding Better for Chester

The Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. Here is how we will do it in Chester:

Demand Better Housing

We will bring empty homes back into use, promote a sensible solution to Student Housing, and ensure that planning permission is always kept to when developing.

Demand Better Transport

We will promote better regional transport links, and work to build a transport system for our City that uses emerging technology to help benefit us all.

Demand Better for our Environment

We will work to make our City a green space by opening up public spaces and planting trees. We will also put an end to plans for Fracking and instead promote 21st Century solutions to energy generation.

Demand Better Health Care

We will work to ensure the future of the hospital and A&E in Chester, and promote the return of GP's to local communities. 

Demand Better Democracy

We will work to create a better local democracy by empowering local residents to make their own decisions, make sure consultations are real and listen to and promote votes at 16 in all elections.

Demand Better Education

We will promote education for all ages, including in later life, through academic and none academic routes to enable everyone to achieve.

Demand Better Economy

We will bring back the One City Plan, and work to establish ways of promoting local and independent businesses throughout our City. We will also review the Northgate scheme to ensure it is sustainable in the face of a changing retail enviroment. 

Demand Better Justice

We will work to ensure our city remains a safe place for everyone by improving rehabilitation, increasing community policing and working to ensure our police officers have a greater presence in our communities. 

Demand Better Culture

We will work to transform our City into a world leading place for Arts and Culture, through innovative and bold plans. We will also work to ensure that our entire City benefits from our cultural facilities and that they are spread throughout the City, and not just in the Northgate Quarter.
