Give people a vote. Give people a say. Give people control over their own lives

On Saturday 21st April at The Karibu Centre in Brixton, George Turner represented Lambeth Liberal Democrats in a housing hustings to remember.

Attended by residents from across our borough, the message to Labour Lambeth Council was clear: this council has failed on housing.

Lib Dems call for a more walking and cycling-friendly Liveable Lambeth

Lambeth Lib Dems think local streets should first and foremost be spaces for people. Walking and cycling should become safe, easy choices for all Lambeth residents, and the health and wellbeing of local people a higher priority. 

We’re delighted therefore to pledge our support for ‘My Liveable London’, an initiative from London Cycling Campaign and Living Streets. A Lib Dem-led Lambeth Council would submit a high-quality Liveable Neighbourhood bid, based in an area with high potential for walking and cycling, taking major steps to prioritise people walking and cycling over private cars in the area. At the time of writing, the Lib Dems are the only party in Lambeth to have made this commitment. 

We are privileged to have some of the UK’s most experienced and passionate campaigners in this field right here in our borough; if elected we will work closely with local cycling, walking and disability groups to identify the best opportunities to secure and use this central funding.

Lambeth thinks again on Mamma Mia after protest supported by local Lib Dems

Lambeth council’s planning application committee has deferred the decision on Mamma Mia’s abysmal visitor management plan.

The committee finally recognised the issues which local residents have been screaming about ever since this idea was hatched.

There are concerns around anti-social behaviour in an area of social housing and the regulation of movement of coaches and taxis in the already overly congested Stamford Street and surrounding roads.

The decision to defer is to the credit of many groups, especially those local residents that spoke at the meeting, Samantha Young, Barry Hetherington and Hannah Quigley.

The campaign has been led by local activists and campaigners, and residents from Waterloo’s Resident Alliance, Thames Central Open Spaces, Waterloo Action Centre and Waterloo Community Development Group, as well as our local Lib Dem candidates for Bishop’s ward for the upcoming local elections, Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett (wearing the yellow scarf), Audrey Eager and Charley Hasted.

Lib Dems submit full slate of candidates for Lambeth local elections 2018

A full slate of 63 Liberal Democrats are standing to represent you on Lambeth Council in next month’s local elections.

London goes to the polls on May 3, with everybody in Lambeth voting for three candidates to represent their ward.

And wherever you live in the borough, you can cast all three votes for the Lib Dems, as we put forward three candidates in every ward.

Liberal Democrat supporters, those who want to send a clear message on Brexit to the national parties and those who have had enough of Labour Lambeth wasting their money, shutting down libraries and allowing rampant development unaffordable to the vast majority of those that consider Lambeth their home can make their voices heard on May 3 with three votes for local Lib Dem candidates.

Rethinking Lambeth - for all

For me, being a Liberal Democrat is about empowering individuals, giving everyone the chance to realise their potential, working collectively to protect the most vulnerable in our communities, and being open and tolerant.

This is the first time I’ve been a candidate, having joined the Liberal Democrats after the 2015 General Election, to become part of a movement to keep alive those core values of liberalism and social democracy in our community.

The most exhilarating thing about campaigning in this election has been working with a group of candidates who share those values so passionately; be it on special education needs, mental health, environmental issues, libraries, women’s rights, affordable housing for all, and so many other issues.

Early on we hit upon the idea of ‘Rethinking Lambeth’ as a theme for our campaign, looking at innovative solutions as a way to bring about change for Lambeth. In difficult times we need bold ideas to make our borough work for everyone.
