Lib Dem activists

Cllr James Wright with a number of local activists

To be a Liberal Democrat is to believe passionately in the power of local action by committed individuals to achieve results for communities.

Across the country, our councillors are the ones embedded in those communities giving people a voice. More than any other party we believe in local solutions to local problems and that the closer and more engaged residents are to the decision-making process the better.

Our group on Norwich City Council has an impressive record of pushing the current administration to take better decisions. However, we need more voices on the council representing more areas to make those arguments louder.

Our plan for Norwich aims to let local people have far more of a say on decisions made at City Hall, giving more power to the people in the community.

We will seek opportunities to provide jobs through our direct investment in Norwich rather than in other parts of the country, such as our desire to see battery storage sites developed, and we will endeavour to build far more houses and flats to reduce an already-high waiting list for properties.

We want to improve our transport links as well as bettering our digital connections with the world, aspiring to make Norwich an international hub for digital innovation.

We will also build on our success in getting backing to establish a Climate Change committee, needed to ensure that the council puts the environment at the heart of all planned work.

It is time for a fresh approach for at City Hall, and so I urge you to vote Liberal Democrat on May 2nd.
