Kent Liberal Democrats set out key priorities for next County Council
Covid-19 has highlighted the value of caring for each other. Now we need to care for those most affected by the pandemic and help them recover - NHS staff, care workers, those that care for family members, children with disrupted schooling, people with mental health challenges and many more. At the same time, we will aspire to a better quality of life for all, with clean air and green space that everyone can appreciate.
Kent County Council needs to help lead this recovery and help make Kent a better place to live for all generations.
The Liberal Democrats are committed to caring for our community, our environment and for you.
These are Kent Liberal Democrats' six key priorities for the coming years:
We will ensure that care services are tailored to each individual's needs. We will help care workers get the support and recognition they deserve. We will provide voluntary carers with better support and respite breaks.
We want public open space to be protected and enhanced, with better access for disabled persons. We will provide more electric vehicle chargers. We will crack down on polluters. We will restrict the use of dangerous herbicides and pesticides.
We will press for every child to have access to a good nursery. We will give schools the help they need, so every child can thrive in the classroom and get a good start in life. We will make special needs assessments easier and quicker.
We will help people lead more active and healthy lives. We will strengthen nursing support for infants and at schools. We will make it easier for children and young persons to get mental health support.
We will promote 20mph as the default speed limit in residential areas, shopping districts and around schools. We will press for more effective police enforcement of speed limits and action against danderous and anti-social parking.
We aim to restore bus services, adding new routes where needed. We will promote transport integration and network-wide ticketing. We will encourage workplace travel plans, which take cars off the road.
