The ambitious plan sets out six priority areas which Liberal Democrats believe will take Haringey Council from being the worst-run council in London under Labour towards a well-run borough where all residents have the opportunity to succeed and have their voices heard.
Building on the previous launch of their key pledges, the party that is just a handful of votes from winning control of Haringey Council has presented its plans in six key areas:
- Putting child protection first
- Making Haringey safer and cleaner
- Giving more power to residents
- Spending money well
- Action on the environment
- Creating a fairer Haringey
Cllr Robert Gorrie, leader of Haringey Liberal Democrats, comments:
“We have set out today our positive vision for change in Haringey. Our energetic team has the new ideas, ambition and experience to steer the borough away from the failure that residents have endured during 40 years of Labour.
“The residents of Haringey deserve better than the worst-run council in London they currently have under Labour. This is why we have set out clear priorities that will improve our Children’s Services, make Haringey safer and cleaner, give more power to residents, whilst also spending their money better, taking real action on the environment and creating a fairer Haringey.
“With the Conservatives out of the race, its going to be a close campaign between the Liberal Democrats and Labour. The Liberal Democrats have the team that will change Haringey for the better, and give it the fresh start it needs.”
Lynne Featherstone MP adds:
“Local people have for too long had to put up with failure after failure by Haringey Council. I am proud that we have a Liberal Democrat team ready and able to hit the ground running on day one, to turn Haringey Council around. I am confident that they have the vision, talent and experience to put their ambitious plans into action.”
