The inside scoop from the Liberal Democrats on what's going on at County Hall, home of Norfolk County Council

  • Swanton Mobile Library
    Article: Sep 26, 2018

    Mobile libraries provide a place for rural or remote communities to gather. People enjoy coming together to meet. Mobile libraries offer a chance for a community to connect with each other, share stories, and be a social gathering place. This is especially important in rural, isolated places where the opportunity to connect with others is limited.

  • Mundesley Childrens Centre
    Petition: Sep 19, 2018

    Conservative proposals to cut £5million from Children Services by seeking to close 46 of 53 Children Centres across Norfolk is wrong. It puts Children's futures at risk.

    We believe that an adequately funded service that puts children first should be based on a comprehensive network of children's centres and open to all families who need it.

  • Plasterboard waste
    Article: Jul 24, 2018

    Despite claims to the contrary the evidence is available that the household DIY waste charges should be scrapped immediately as there is a clear indication that fly-tipping has increased as a consequence of the charges.

    On the basis that the County Council will not meet its projected £280,000 savings target, the effect will be to shunt the clearing up costs onto the District Councils who are responsible for clearing up fly tipping incidents.

    Libraries are seen by many as a lifeline and a crucial public service, especially if you are elderly, socially isolated, poor, vulnerable, or all of the above.

    In rural areas, the local library, along with the village hall, pub and shop, is the focal point of community life. It's a safe, trusted place for meeting friends and neighbours, a place for learning, information and leisure and sometimes just a place to keep warm.

    Article: Jun 6, 2018

    We believe that the charges that Norfolk County Council have introduced for the disposal of DIY household waste at the council's household waste management sites will lead to more flytipping across Norfolk. The Tory Commitee Chairman, Martin Wilby told us that there would be no increase in fly tipping and that would mean no extra costs to the tax payer.
