Rochdale Lib Dems annouce Kate Clegg as candidate for Littleborough Lakeside Ward

Kate Clegg (Littleborough Lakeside Liberal Democrats)Kate is 36 and lives in smithy bridge with her husband, 2 girls, 2 dogs, a cat and flock of ex-battery hens. Kate works as a lecturer in Criminology and Criminal Justice and attends Smithy Bridge Methodist church. In her limited spare time, Kate loves walking her dogs in the countryside around Littleborough and is a keen baker.

In 2018 Kate jointly set up the Littleborough and Smithy Bridge 'Save the Greenbelt' campaign which continues to vehemently oppose the plans to build extensively on the greenbelt in our area.

Kate says "I am delighted to have been selected to stand for Littleborough Lakeside for the Lib Dems. I felt I had to stand to give the community the chance to vote for a councillor who will truly listen and serve the constituents. I am not against building new homes so long as they genuinely meet local need and are on brownfield sites".

"I am deeply concerned about the climate emergency facing the country and I would love to see Littleborough Lakeside leading the way in the borough for an improved recycling scheme, a reduction in single use plastics and cleaner air"

Kate would like to see safer and cleaner walking and cycling paths in the area, especially on school routes and if elected, will lobby for improvements to cycle routes and for better public transport through the reintroduction of a bus route between Littleborough and Milnrow. Kate and her family can often be seen out litter picking in the local community. "We are lucky to live in such a beautiful area, it saddens me to see so much litter and graffiti around, I would like to see the litter bins emptied more regularly , particularly during busy weekends on the canal and at the lake".

Kate concludes, 'Littleborough Lakeside deserves an active, energetic and enthusiastic representitive who is visible, approachable and available all year round. I am 100% committed to the long term future of Littleborough Lakeside'.
