Lib Dem Budget Proposals: One hour free parking across Wiltshire

February 21, 2012 5:37 PM

Wiltshire Liberal Democrats are today pleased to release our proposals for the Wiltshire Council Budget.

Our Budget proposals are focused on rebuilding local communities in Wiltshire. The Conservative Administration on Wiltshire Council has taken decisions since 2009 which are divorced from the needs and wants of local communities. Wiltshire Lib Dems want to reverse that, putting jobs back onto the High Streets of our town centres.

Our headline proposal is the introduction of one hour's free parking in every Council car park across Wiltshire, but we're also calling for roads funding to be devolved outwards to local communities, and extra schools funding.

We've also identified areas where the Council is still wasting money, along with new ideas for making savings, including a switch to new energy-efficent LED street lights. All our proposals have been signed off as financially viable by Wiltshire Council finance officers. Wiltshire can afford these proposals today.

See below for the full document setting out the proposals we'll be making in the Council meeting on February 28th
