    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."

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

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.
