Tilehurst South & Holybrook Fighting Fund
Following the death of a Conservative councillor in the Tilehurst South & Holybrook ward a by-election will be held on December 16th.
In Steve Bown the Liberal Democrats have a local candidate who will fight for a fairer, greener, more caring West Berkshire.
Steve is standing because he believes that the Conservatives have taken our area for granted for too long. In recent months, the Conservative administration of West Berkshire Council have shown just how out of touch with residents they are. From cutting the ReadiBus service that provided a way to get around independently for those with limited mobility, to failing to step up and provide for children on free school meals during the pandemic, the Conservatives don’t understand that the impact their decisions have on many people’s daily lives.
All this while their cosy relationship with developers is causing a real threat to our green spaces. Already during our campaign we’ve heard how upset residents are by the planned development at Pincents Hill, and their fears that the development of our area will never stop.
Steve will stand up to developers, and fight to protect our green spaces. The lockdowns over the past 18 months have proven how vital green space is for our physical and mental wellbeing – we can’t afford to lose it.
This by-election presents voters with the opportunity to send a message to the Council administration that they want change, and only a vote for the Liberal Democrats can do that. Labour have 0 councillors in West Berkshire and the Greens are far behind.
