    "As Leader of the Liberal Democrats on Wokingham Borough Council I welcome you to our 2019 Local Manifesto, which has been produced for the 2019 Local Elections.

  • Housing (Wokingham Liberal Deocrats)

    The problems

    • Imposed housing numbers are unrealistic - a 30% increase is too high for our Borough
    • Current numbers are destroying the very nature of our area and leading to gridlock
    • Green belt is under threat
    • Developer tactics manipulate the system to their advantage

    Our solutions

    • Fight the current housing numbers being imposed and lobby for a fairer national method for deciding them
    • More real local decision making on housing numbers & types
    • Wokingham Borough Council to provide more of its own land so we can control development and reduce land costs, to get more affordable housing
    • Smaller sites with more local control & work for local builders and self-builders
