First net zero carbon council houses to be built in Caterham

New council homes will be zero carbon in Tandridge thanks to local Lib Dem councillors’ climate change initiative. Last night’s Tandridge Housing Committee agreed to build a trial 12 new net zero carbon council houses in Caterham. This follows the Liberal Democrat Councillors introducing a motion to declare a climate emergency earlier this year which was supported by all councillors with the exception of the two Harestone Conservative Councillors.

The Tory plan to abolish District Councils in Surrey and create one monster council

Today the Tories who run Surrey County Council have announced their plans to try and abolish all the District Councils in Surrey and hoover them up into a single monster Surrey Council running everything from planning and refuse collection through to schools and roads- all from Kingston. Details are currently limited and no details of how such a change would be implemented were given, other than it is anticipated that all District Councils will cease to exist.

The Taskforce is set to advise and guide thousands of Liberal Democrats right across the UK who want to ensure all those self-isolating, especially the vulnerable and elderly, get the support they need.
