The North Hertfordshire Liberal Democrats

We are the champions for liberal values across North Hertfordshire. Locally, we will use our position on the District and County councils to deliver meaningful and progressive change on behalf of residents. Nationally, we want to build a fairer society, but also keep the economy strong and secure. Internationally we want the UK to remain engaged in Europe, and to lead the response to global challenges like climate change. If you share our values and objectives, please give us your support. (NB. This site only covers North Herts. If you live in Stevenage, please visit www.stevenagelibdems.org.uk).

    This week FPC met with an unusually light-looking agenda but we still managed to talk for two and half hours! We received an excellent presentation from Mimi Turner, Director of Strategy, Messaging and Research. Mimi talked us through the scale of the task ahead of us in terms of understanding how the Party fares when voters are asked whether we share their values; whether we'll do what we say; whether we're perceived as wanting to help ordinary people get on in life; and whether they see us as competent and capable.

    To start off the week, the Commons had a quiet day of business.

    Herts County Council's Highways Panel has voted in favour of a new speed management strategy that will make it harder to introduce new 20mph speed limits.

    At the moment, to introduce a 20mph limit without humps or similar traffic calming, the existing speeds must be 25mph or below in at least 90% of the roads covered. The new strategy changes this to require existing speeds below 24mph in every single road. It also introduces a policy of removing new 20mph limits if speeds remain too high after they have been installed for a year.

    Today the Government announced their Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution.

    Sadly, it fails to undo the damage the Conservatives have done to the UK's progress on climate change over the past five years.

    We need a long term plan backed by meaningful funding.

    Their plan not only pledges to continue selling fossil fuel powered hybrid cars past 2030 but it also extends the Green Homes Grant by just one year.

    Disability History Month is an important opportunity to remember how far we have come in the battle for disability rights and equality.

    There is still a long road ahead to ensure equality and inclusion for disabled people.

    It is also a time to honour those who have led the way forward, defied stereotypes and contributed so much to the success of our country.

    With coronavirus putting the most vulnerable in our communities at risk, we must ensure no one is left behind.

    2020 has seen a sharp rise in rough sleeping. Without a home to stay in, these people are at a higher risk of catching the virus and have no way to self-isolate.

    The homelessness crisis is not new, and is not going away once we defeat Covid.

    13 November marks the beginning of Trans Awareness Week.

    Started in 1988, this week is for amplifying the voices of trans people, and for advocating an end to the discrimination and prejudice that trans people still face today. The week ends with Trans Day of Remembrance, on 20 November, which honours the memory of the lives of trans people whose lives were lost to violence and bigotry that year.
