    "...Because of the recession, people won't have the money to buy houses, but investment buyers will. That's not good for communities. Instead, we need more large infrastructure projects to help the local economy. We need to build and maintain parks, schools and roads, and CIL money is needed desperately..."

  • 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

    In his statement Ian gave his reasons for moving to the Liberal Democrats. These included his concerns over Brexit and how the Conservatives are running Wokingham Borough Council

    Lindsay Ferris (Leader of the Lib Dems on Wokingham Borough Council) expressed his delight that Ian had the courage of his convictions to join the Liberal Democrats and welcomed him to their Group. Lindsay added "It is clear that the tide is turning and more and more people are seeing that the Conservatives are letting down the residents of Wokingham Borough. The February by-election in Emmbrook showed the strength of local residents' feelings, as the Lib Dems took the seat from the Conservatives with a 696 majority.

    By Wokingham Liberal Democrats

    Conservative-controlled Wokingham Borough Council has massively increased car parking charges at Dinton Pastures and California Country Parks, causing fears that many local families will now be unable to use them. This steep rise in charges is likely to put people off going to the parks, so there will be less income, not more!
