In brief - a summary of the manifesto:
Liberal Democrats will make sure that residents are put at the heart of everything the council does. That means listening to, engaging with and consulting you to ensure that we’re delivering on the issues that matter most to your community.
With your support a Liberal Democrat run District Council will:
Reach out to local communities
We believe it’s time for communities to be listened to and will survey residents every year to hear your views.
Work cross-party to get things done
We believe in putting politics to one side and will work cross-party to deliver the best outcomes for you and your family.
Protect our area’s special character
North Norfolk has a unique character, which is why we choose to live here.We believe in protecting it for future generations and will increase recycling rates, clean up our streets, plant more trees and tackle climate change. Liberal Democrats on North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) will put a motion to the next Full Council meeting declaring a Climate Emergency
