  • Jeremy Hilton at the Rose Garden
    Article: Mar 16, 2021
    The long awaited construction of the new Wellington Parade Garden is imminent after the city council signed the contract with the company who will build it.
    The new layout has been through public consultation exercise.
    The garden was closed and boarded up in 2018 at the request of local residents who were fed up with the anti-social behaviour of street drinkers that congregated in a large group and got drunk and misbehaved.
  • Sarah Sawyer and Elmleaze pothole
    Petition: Mar 15, 2021
    The roads on The Leazes estate in Elmbridge are full of potholes and in a very poor condition.
    Years of underinvestment by the ruling Conservatives at Shire Hall means there is a backlog of repairs of £80 million.
    Sarah Sawyer is campaigning for improvements to the roads in The Leazes and wants to see them resurfaced and not just patched. As lead petitioner she will keep signatories updated on progress of this petition.

    One of Gloucester's most important monuments has received a Government grant to help with ongoing maintenance.

    St Oswald's Priory has been awarded £25,000 from the Culture Recovery Fund to pay towards the cost of conservation work.

    Among the projects is placing a turf layer onto the top of the walls, which helps reduce the deterioration of the stones.

  • Lib Dems and the Amey household recycling mess
    Article: Mar 13, 2021

    The Liberal Democrats have welcomed the decision to appoint a new city council waste contractor.

    Ubico will provide Gloucester with waste and recycling services, street and toilet cleaning, grounds and tree maintenance from April next year - replacing Amey.

    As the company is co-owned by the other district council's in Gloucestershire and West Oxfordshire it should mean it is easier to improve waste services.

  • Councillor Sebastian Field and litter
    Article: Mar 11, 2021

    The Liberal Democrats are challenging the Conservative city council administration over its dreadful record on emptying the bins and clearing litter in Gloucester.

    At next week's full council meeting, the Lib Dems will propose a motion calling for a root and branch review of litter bin provision and the emptying regime in the city.
