Our Plan For Rochdale

We need affordable housing close to public transport and amenities - we do not need large executive houses built on greenbelt land.

We need to encourage small retailers into the town centre - and deliver a credible plan for the towns market.

We will use the increase in your council tax to put 32 extra bobbies on the beat.

We will reintroduce free bulky waste collections to tackle fly tipping at source.

We will protect publicly funded local bus services - particularly in rural areas - and work with GMPTE to get additional trams and trains at peak times.

We will prioritise funding for youth services so that every young person in Rochdale can truly achieve their potential.

    Let's play a game of guess the year…..

    When were these words published by the Council in its masterplan?

    "Rochdale Town Centre has been identified as a key driver in the regeneration of the Borough. The town centre has become tired and is losing its proper place amongst competing centres."

    Here's a clue - it was the year we all went mad for Crazy Frog and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    Community spirited, magnanimous, humble… a few of the compliments that have come our way over recent months. Why? Living locally to the Ogden Reservoir area, and having two dogs, my husband and I spend a good part of each day walking the paths, lanes and old pack horse routes around the Ogden, Kitcliffe, Piethorne reservoirs and beyond. But recently, we have stopped calling them dog walks, and refer to them more as "litter picking sessions".

    Lib Dem leaders from across Greater Manchester have heavily criticised Thursday night's shambolic announcement to impose social restrictions across the 10 boroughs in the region.

    "It would appear that the Johnson administration doesn't have a handle on what's going on in the North. " Said Councillor Andy Kelly from Rochdale Council. "As well as sending mixed messages encouraging people to use restaurants and pubs with discounted meals next week, people are feeling scared by confusing messaging about not being able to meet in their own gardens but a pub beer garden is ok."

    What are the Liberal Democrats calling for?

    We're calling on the Government to grant indefinite leave to remain in the UK - the right to stay - to all foreign nationals currently working in the NHS and social care, and their families.

    How many people from other countries work in the NHS and social care?

    Throughout this crisis, the Government's communications have been an utter disaster.

    Yet more mistakes reveal how necessary it is for an inquiry to be launched now

    To announce a regional lockdown of millions of people not only just hours before it's enforced, but with no clarity on the new rules coming into place, is beyond comprehension.
