We are delighted to announce that Liberal Democrat Membership Officer Nigel Marshall will be standing in High Town on May 6th in the local council elections.

The Liberal Democrats continue to build on their excellent reputation of campaigning on local issues all year round and not just turning up at election time.

With the increasing unpopularity of the Labour led Council continuing to make decisions that go against the wishes of many Lutonians it is crucial that we elect more Liberal Democrats to the leading Opposition Group on the council. Nigel’s campaign in High Town will focus on:

  1. The protection of our parks and green spaces against further development by the Labour led Council.
  2. Opposition against the continued building of 1 bedroom flats in the town centre instead of family friendly accommodation.
  3. Campaigning to reduce local pollution, tackling congestion issues and improving public transport.
  4. Improving street cleaning and working against fly-tipping and other anti-social behaviours.
  5. Campaigning to improve facilities in the area for local residents and families against council cutbacks.

If you are able to support our local election campaign in any way and would like to get involved with Luton Liberal Democrats who work tirelessly to improve our town please contact us on enquiry@lutonlibdems.org.uk and we will happily respond to you.

“Luton should follow Liverpool’s lead, there can’t be a town anywhere in Britain more in need of protection for its parks and green open spaces.”

Liberal Democrat leader, Cllr. David Franks

Following the news that Liverpool City Council has partnered with the national charity Fields in Trust to protect the city’s parks and green open spaces Liberal Democrat Councillors have asked for a full report on the agreement to be made to Luton Council’s Overview & Scrutiny Board.

“It looks like a really trailblazing initiative by this respected National Charity and Liverpool’s Council has seized the opportunity to be the first to take up the challenge,” says Cllr. David Franks, Liberal Democrat leader of the opposition on the Council.

“Luton should follow Liverpool’s lead, there can’t be a town anywhere in Britain more in need of protection for its parks and green open spaces. Luton now has a serious chance to put together a partnership deal which will make a difference for future generations. It would be crazy to ignore the possibilities of a partnership arrangement. We have to find out a lot more about how it works.”

In an email to the Council’s Democracy Department the Liberal Democrats have asked for a full report on the details of the deal and any costs involved. Fields in Trust is a long-standing national charity which used to be known as the National Playing Fields Association.
