What is the most important local election issue?
It’s interesting to see that one of our election rivals have picked up on an issue we raised a while back, the privatisation of our leisure centres.
They are campaigning on it as their one big issue.
I spoke to a BBC reporter today who wasn’t sure if this was the biggest issue in the New Forest.
I told her that I don’t think it is.
In our Liberal Democrat Manifesto, we have made 12 pledges which we think represent the biggest concerns of local people.
If I was pushed, I would say that the top three issues are affordable housing, lack of community policing and the terrible recycling record of NFDC’s Tories.
As always, very interested to hear your views.
If anybody can tell me what the other parties are positively proposing to do, please enlighten me!
