    Lichfield Local Plan Preferred Options - Lib Dems

    Lichfield is a great city to live in. It should also be a great city to work in. Unfortunately, so many Lichfield and Burntwood residents must commute out of the area each day to go to work. With its highly skilled workforce, strong road and rail connections to the rest of the country and available land for development, the Lichfield area can provide an excellent location for businesses looking for a site in the Midlands.

    Boris Johnson's government has set out a disastrous agenda which will force through a hard Brexit, undermine our public services, destroy opportunities for our communities and cripple living standards.

    Brexit will hinder our ability to safeguard our NHS and reduce our capacity to tackle the climate crisis.

    The fact that radical climate action has been ignored is a hallmark of a government which is setting all the wrong priorities.

    Not good news for the Lib Dems nationally. Though the vote share rose from 7.4% to 11.5%, sadly the number of Lib Dem MPs fell by one, Jo Swinson's seat, compared to the situation after the 2017 election.

    But locally the outcome was better. In Tamworth our vote share slightly increased, and more than doubled in Burton and Lichfield. In the latter Paul Ray's vote share rose to 10.8%.
