    Today the Liberal Democrats advocated for the adoption of an amendment to Wiltshire Council's budget to allow for a greater move to LED street lighting across the county.

    Unfortunately, the Lib Dem amendment was not adopted by Wiltshire's ruling Conservatives, who chose to ignore the benefits that increasing the adoption of LED lighting would bring to the county. The Lib Dems supported funding an extra £1m to be more proactive in our approach to rolling out LED street lighting in Wiltshire. Cllr Steve Oldrieve, who drafted the Lib Dem amendment commented that, 'the Lib Dem amendment is a win-win proposal allowing significant revenue savings whilst reducing our carbon footprint. It is unbelievable that Wiltshire Council's Conservative administration have rejected it and shows a lack of leadership in the fight against global warming."

    Local people took their concerns over the proposed speed limits of the new Hilperton Gap road to County Hall this morning with 150 residents attending the council meeting to speak on the issue.

    Councillors heard from three speakers but residents were the shocked to be told by the Conservative run council that no further speakers would be permitted. Wiltshire Liberal Democrats objected strongly to this ruling and called for all members of the public to be heard. Initially rejected this was then put to a vote of the council following a technical motion for the suspension of standing orders by Lib Dem leader Jon Hubbard.

    The Conservative report on car park charges places the blame squarely on market town traders and the national economy, and refuses to accept any influence from higher costs driving people away from our town centres. In November's Full Council meeting, Wiltshire Lib Dems challenged the Conservative whitewash, and demanded 30 minutes free parking in every (Band 3) market town, but the proposal was dismissed.

    Conservative and Labour councillors joined Liberal Democrats in throwing out Wiltshire Council's proposals to "harmonise" waste and recycling across the county.

    A meeting of the Environment Select Committee (Tuesday January 12) considered a report from a task group set up to look at the future of waste and recycling. The 'official' verdict of the Task Group was that all of Wiltshire should have fortnightly rubbish collections and chargeable green waste collections, and that no attempt should be made to introduce kerbside cardboard and plastic recycling collections immediately, though they could be brought in within five years.
