Laurence Brass - Lib Dem county candidate for Bushey North

Laurence Brass's Pledges

WATFORD STADIUM All Bushey's Lib Dem councillors will vote against ANY Local Plan which includes a Watford FC stadium on Bushey Hall Golf Course. By contrast, the Tories are hopelessly divided on this issue, and refuse to rule it out.

BUSHEY COUNTRY CLUB I will fight to preserve the bulk of the site as a country park - and oppose plans to bulldoze it for a huge and inappropriate school.

FARM WAY FIELDS I will support residents' concerns about the proposed 850-home Compass Park development on the Masons Field greenbelt and insist on a proper public consultation.

But I don't just want to stop things: I want to start things, too. I'm committed to making a fairer and greener Bushey - by improving bus services and cycle lanes, expanding rooftop solar power, supporting carers, and helping disadvantaged schoolchildren. I also want to make it much easier to get your everyday problems solved, like potholes, streetlamps and pavements. I'll hold regular residents' meetings, and introduce a dedicated hotline for reporting local concerns.

Laurence's plan for Bushey

  1. Safer, better, highways Restore a fair share of county funding and fix Bushey's roads and pavements. 20mph limits for residential roads.
  2. Stay in touch Regular residents' surgeries and a new hotline for reporting local problems.
  3. Greener More cycle lanes and rooftop solar power. Improve local bus services and household recycling.
  4. Fairer Expand free school meals for disadvantaged children. Pay carers a living wage.
  5. Healthier Improve wellbeing facilities to more easily enable residents to engage with one another.

  6. Cleaner Curb fly-tipping. Clean litter from the river Colne
