Labour Party outlines policies
The Labour Party on Lincolnshire County Council has outlined a range of policies ahead of the next 12 months.
It comes after Labour replaced UKIP as the official opposition at County Offices earlier this month.
The party has been busy forming its shadow cabinet and official members over the last fortnight.
Leader of the opposition John Hough said: “Now that we are the official opposition on the county council we want to set out our agenda for the next year.
“Our aim is to make Lincolnshire a better place to live and work and visit. We have excellent councillors and a set of aims which can be implemented at a relatively minimal cost given the council’s financial resources.”
Among the main priorities for Labour is for a new park and ride scheme launched in Lincoln by June 2015 and for the continuation of running libraries as a public service.
Meanwhile, councillor Neville Jackson has been appointed as the party chairman, Sarah Dodds as party whip, Robin Renshaw as treasurer and Judy Renshaw as group secretary.
