Car drivers, bus users, young, old, those with disabilities
– all will pay the price in Labour’s proposed budget cuts!
What are they proposing?
Parking charges up to £2 an hour. More spaces, but much higher car parking charges.
Some night time and Sunday bus services will disappear. Young people and pensioners face higher bus fares.
Even fewer people eligible for Council housing as they want to change the rules.
MK Citizens Advice Bureau faced with closure. Local charities, like those that help the blind and help the young homeless may vanish for ever.
Children’s Centres, Youth Clubs, Community Centres – all are on Labour’s ‘hit list’.
No more black bin bags, and higher charges for special collections.
And what are they proposing spending money on?
Spending millions on new furniture and new computers for their offices.
More money on senior staff and “away days” for staff.
The Liberal Democrats want to save our crucial services for the disadvantaged and disabled. Keep critical voluntary services that help all. And not hit car drivers or bus users.
Home buyers in Milton Keynes will pay on average £392 less in Stamp Duty. The new system – announced in the Coalition Government’s Autumn Statement – is based on a long-standing Liberal Democrat policy and will reduce the cost of moving house, especially for 1st time buyers.

The H9 will be closed near Kingston roundabout until spring 2015 while a new underpass is constructed underneath it. The underpass will serve new housing beyond the roundabout.
The road is still open from the V11 as far as the entrances to the houses in Wavendon Gate, and the businesses in Brinklow.
The roadworks are causing queues on the V11. Please remember to leave room for people to cross the V11 into and out of estates. Thank you.
Pigeons are now causing problems under the bridge off Brecon Court, Monkston (above). Vanessa McPake has added it to list of problem bridges.
Sadly the new anti-pigeon netting we had installed in Birdlip Lane and Tewkesbury Lane was vandalised. MK Council have told us they are reinstalling it in Tewksbury Lane, and having a general clean up of all 3 sites.
