    The Manchester Lib Dems want the Gay Village to be the best it can be. We want the city to show it's pride in the Village. We want to secure the long-term future of Pride at the heart of the Gay Village.

    21 months ago in January 2018, Sir Richard Leese promised us a new vision for the regeneration of the Gay Village. Where is it? What's stopping our Labour Council from releasing the plan? When will the community be able to say what it wants in the area?

  • Central Retail Park Duo
    Survey: Aug 5, 2019
    6 questions

    The former Central Retail Park has been bought by the Council and the existing buildings demolished.

    This makes it the biggest plot of publicly-owned land in the city. Whilst there are long-term plans to redevelop this area into offices, we are concerned that residents have not been sufficiently consulted on temporary plans to turn this space into simply a car park! And this is from the Labour Council that claimed to care about a Climate Emergency.

  • Lowry Steps Angel Meadow
    Survey: Jul 30, 2019
    4 questions

    A current planning application is seeking to remove historic features around Angel Meadow and St. Michael's Flags, features that are a vital part of our city's heritage.

    We know that this Labour Council has already approved several 20-storey buildings that will eventually overshadow the park. But now they want to rip up the steps that Lowry painted, the cobbled streets that the matchstick men and women walked on, and tear down the foundations of buildings that are a testament to our shared industrial heritage.

    The Polling Station for residents in and around Angel Meadow needs to be changed.

    Currently residents have to walk up Rochdale Road to Abbot Community Primary School to vote. This acts a disincentive to vote and consequently Angel Meadow, and its surrounding streets have one of the lowest turnouts across the whole city at around 12%.

  • Great Ancoats Street Plans
    Survey: Jun 17, 2019
    5 questions

    Manchester City Council have recently announced spending of £9.1million to 'upgrade' Great Ancoats Street but completely ignores the desires of residents, communters, and visitors who want safe cycling routes along and across this major road. It also ignores the promises Labour made in their 2018 manifesto to implement Chris Boardman's Made to Move report to prioritse integrated walking and cycling https://tfgm.com/made-to-move/publications

    The prospect of opening up the NHS to American business practice is just another reason to fight to remain in the EU!

    American President, Donald Trump, has stated at a news conference with the Prime Minister today that in any post Brexit trade negotiations everything, including the NHS 'will be on the table.

    Manchester Liberal Democrats environment spokesperson, Dr Jackie Pearcey, has welcomed moves today led by Liberal Democrats MP Wera Hobhouse calling for an end to fracking because of its adverse impact on the environment and its incompatibility with tackling the climate crisis.

    After gaining her PhD Jackie Pearcey took part in a project to work out what would happen with long-term nuclear waste repositories under various points in the North of England and told us that "The problem was that the ground water would always get in and would always get up to the surface. Fracking will contaminate the groundwater and this will get to the surface."

    Graham Stringer last night voted with Theresa May's government to prevent parliament from taking steps to prevent a no-deal Brexit by extending the article 50 negotiating period in order to agree an alternative deal with the EU. The former Manchester City Council Leaser joined with other veteran Eurosceptics Kate Hoey, and Dennis Skinner and 11 other Labour MP's in voting down Yvette Cooper's amendment by 321 votes to 298.
