The Wetherby Liberal Democrats plan to make Wetherby greener.
Support Lib Dem candidate David Hopps in the Leeds City Council elections on May 2 and join our campaign to begin to make this happen:
- Work with shops to reduce reliance on single-use plastic and disposable cups.
- Promote free tap water using the Find Your Fill campaign at Refill.org.uk and investigate drinking fountains in Wetherby and Boston Spa
- Protect our most cherished open spaces from development
- Support safe neighbourhoods for cycling and walking
- Fight to keep our footpaths open and in good condition
- Support Wetherby market, local shops and allotments
- Introduce door-to-door glass collection and food waste disposal across Leeds
- Reverse Leeds Labour’s charges for bulky waste collection and so reduce fly tipping.
- Reduce plastic pollution in the River Wharfe
- Work with In Bloom groups and other local volunteers to introduce bee-friendly, pesticide free areas across the Wetherby ward
- Introduce more bike racks – and investigate charging points for e bikes
- Encourage electric charging points across the ward so Wetherby and Boston Spa encourage electric vehicles.
- Invite representatives of the Green Party to help us achieve our objectives
