Hull’s Lib Dems have put forward a £2million budget vision that would dramatically improve the condition and traffic flow of the roads, foot & cycle paths in Hull and put a stop to the pothole problems. The alternative budget plan comes with a promise to build a brighter future for residents across the city.

It includes additional funding put back into key local issues such as establishing a local Crime Prevention Fund for communities across Hull to feel safer. The alternate budget sees investment into the key issues residents in Hull face including, money to keep communities cleaner, safer, and greener.

Cllr Mike Ross, Leader of Hull City Council Lib Dems who will propose the opposition budget on Thursday said:

“This Lib Dem alternative budget is an offer to transform the city for the better and fix years of neglect. Local communities would be greener, cleaner and safer, while Councillor allowances would be cut and Labour’s pet projects would be ended.

“Our plans put Hull’s most vulnerable people front and centre with new funding for young people, support for those who struggle with their mental health and new money to tackle homelessness on our streets that affects so many.

“For too long the Labour bosses have taken their extra allowances and hung the people of this city out to dry. The Liberal Democrats would put funding where it’s most needed to support those who need it most in society. Our streets would be greener cleaner and safer under the local Lib Dem team."
