Hotwells & Harbourside’s popular 100 year old library, the Central Library, is under threat after Labour Mayor Rees stated he was looking at selling off the central location, much to the detriment of local residents.
The Liberal Democrats are opposed to the closure of the Central Library, and other cuts to the library budget, and will do everything they can to fight the closure.
First Bus, the company that provides the vast majority of bus services across Bristol, has announced that it is immediately cutting over 1,400 bus services. This is following the collapse of Bristol Community Transport a few months ago. Many thousands of residents will be affected by the bus cuts, coming just weeks before the introduction of the Clean Air Zone in Central Bristol.
The Bristol Liberal Democrats are calling for Bristol, and the wider West of England Region, to follow the successful examples of London and Manchester and embrace bus franchising, which will put control of the routes and prices in the hands of local residents, rather than bus company executives.
Bristol Lib Dems are spearheading a final push promoting the Modern Committee System ahead of tomorrow's Referendum on replacing the Mayoral System in the City.
