We have made great strides in the past four years in investing in our parks, playgrounds, planting more trees and increasing our recycling rates, but there is a lot more to do.

  • Planting the Trees the Lib Dems cut down — there are currently 2,500 tree pits across the Borough that were cut down by the Lib Dems and never replaced. We will commit to replacing all those trees in the next four years.
  • We will support local streets that wish to adopt their verge and wayside gardens. We will work with local garden suppliers to supply discounted bulbs for street verge planting.
  • We will aspire to being a Zero waste council and target the elimination of single-use plastic within the Council by 2020.
