Lancashire Conservative County Councillors are calling on County Council Leader Jennifer Mein and her Labour Party colleagues to halt the drastic cuts that they are making to services which matter to the people of Lancashire.
They write "We are a group of County Councillors who are calling on County Council Leader Jennifer Mein and her Labour Party colleagues to halt the drastic cuts that they are making to services which matter to the people of Lancashire.
So far County Councillor Mein and he Labour colleagues have slashed subsidies to bus routes which have had a devastating effect on some rural communities, and road safety funding has been heavily slashed too.
Their next plan is to slash the number of Libraries and Young People’s Centres, further cutting off our communities and depriving those who most value these services. You can see the buildings proposed for closure here
They are also planning to cut the Supporting People’s funding, which supports vulnerable people in our community. This supports Women’s Refuges, and homeless shelters.
County Councillors presented Councillor Mein with a plan to ensure some of these services could stay open, but she rejected it. It’s time to stand up and be counted. She and the Labour Party are playing politics with people’s lives.
The people of Lancashire have had enough. Please add your name to our petition, which we will be presenting to County Councillor Mein and her Labour colleagues asking them to think again.
