My plan for Park is to:
- Reduce Watford's Council Tax - which is by far the highest in Hertfordshire, and is almost 50% higher than the average imposed by Hertfordshire's Conservative councils.
- Stop high-rises in Watford - Watford Lib Dems passed a Local Plan that allows further high-rises across our town. This is despite the Government repeatedly telling the council that it was not obliged to, and the scrapping of housing targets in December. I will oppose high-rises and ensure developments have appropriate infrastructure.
- Scrap the Lib Dems' Garden Tax - Watford charges residents £50 to collect garden waste, imposing a further stealth tax on Nascot residents. I will scrap it and make it free, as in Hertsmere.
- Take a zero tolerance approach to littering and anti-social behaviour - While serious crime is the responsibility of Herts Police, which have put record numbers on our streets, it's the job of the council to stop anti-social behaviour and littering. I will take a no-nonsense, zero-tolerance approach, and ensure pride is restored to our area.
- Tackle endless roadworks - I will press to introduce a scheme, as in councils like Buckinghamshire, to coordinate and speed up roadworks, to end the constant works that bring our roads to a halt.
