With just under two months to go Ealing Liberal Democrats have launched their local election manifesto for 2014 (pdf).

Their ten key areas are:

• Protect the vulnerable - save day centres and local health services
• Freeze Council Tax for the next four years – cut costs not services
• Cleaner streets and fine contractors for poor performance
• Safer Ealing – more Bobbies on the Beat in high crime areas
• Restore free garden waste collection
• Freeze parking permits and vouchers
• More investment in roads and pavements
• Increase social & affordable housing supply
• Make the Council easier to contact
• Protect green spaces & prevent “garden grabbing

Councillor Gary Malcolm, Leader of the Ealing Liberal Democrats, said:

"Ealing Council has been selling off our day centres, left our streets and parks dirty and charged for collecting our garden waste. The Liberal Democrats are the only party who have costed policies. We will be tough as nails with contractors who are providing a poor service and we will freeze Council Tax for the next four years to give some stability to residents' finances.”

“The Labour party have left Ealing far worse than we were in 2010 and the Conservative party's financial plans do not add up. Only the Liberal Democrats can improve Ealing giving fairness to how our council money is spent. We are the only party who treat our vulnerable residents with a priority.”

“The Liberal Democrats have produced an alternative budget every year during this 4-year electoral term, while the Conservatives have not done so. This year we also had the Council's Chief Executive review our alternative budget to ensure that it is fully costed. The Conservatives have not done so, preferring instead to make statements about what they would do without proving that they could afford to do it. The Liberal Democrats take seriously the duty of providing a great service to the electorate.”
