  • Green Belt
    Article: Mar 14, 2021

    Whatever they say in their leaflets, under the Conservative White Paper Planning for the Future, the green belt is under threat. It will need to be recategorized (refer to the response to Joy Morrissey's question in Parliament on Nov 23rd 2020).

    Stepping away from a compromise on the Local Plan leaves the area with no protection against speculative development.

  • Marlow Bridge Bollards
    Article: Mar 1, 2021

    After spending £110,000 on width restrictions just over a year ago, the Highways authority has discovered that the bollards in place on Marlow Bridge were not stopping larger overweight vehicles from crossing. Hence recently, at significant further expense the width of the bollards has been narrowed further. Local Lib Dems have pointed out that simple tests in advance could have avoided the huge over-expenditure. Even with the new bollards overweight commercial vehicles have been photographed recently crossing the bridge illegally. The bollards don't seem to work and this Tory Council waste could easily have been avoided.

  • Budgens
    Article: Feb 3, 2021

    Your local Liberal Democrat Candidates are working to bring life back into our towns and villages. Burnham has lost its last bank and the High Street pharmacy may close. The good news is the opening of Budgens offering an attractive range of meals.

    Marlow has lost many popular shops, including Waitrose, Cath Kidson and Office. In the Farnhams, the local Lib Dem team are fierce proponents of supporting the local High Street, helping families and the elderly, and working with the Parish Council on matters such as traffic calming, infrastructure and planning."
