    Plymouth Liberal Democrats

    2021 Manifesto

    A shared future for an ambitious city

    As a city, and as a nation, we have experienced a tumultuous time through the COVID- 19 pandemic, which has tragically seen many deaths. It has been a time of great worry and anxiety for people, affecting us all in different ways.

    The pandemic has reminded us of many things: the importance of family and friends; the importance of green spaces and fresh air; the importance of community and working together with shared goals in mind.

    Our manifesto focuses on areas which we believe will bring positive benefits to our communities and the environment we live in. The environment has always been at the heart of our vision and there has never been a more important time for environmental protections and improvements.

    The Liberal Democrats seek solutions which are practical, creative and evidence-based. If elected, we will work hard for our residents, so that their concerns can be addressed and their ideas can be acted upon.

    As a party, we stand up for values that unite, rather than divide us. We want to encourage rational and compassionate politics and this needs to start at a local level.

    We believe in the importance of local communities and their ability to make changes that have a positive impact on individuals' lives. We stand for an open, tolerant and united society and this begins with local people, local communities and local government.

    Plans for a National Landscape Service to replace Dartmoor National Park are about as welcome as the ill-fated European Super League proposal, says a Devon council leader Alan Connett.

    The Government is expected to make an announcement shortly on the future of the nation's National Parks like Dartmoor and Exmoor, as well as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    Everyone has the right to feel safe where they live, and everyone who has been the victim of a crime deserves justice.

    Liberal Democrat Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Brian Blake, is calling for a return to proper community policing, as half of all people say they never see police patrols in their local area.
