In the last four years Liberal Democrats have made a big difference at Teignbridge including; decarbonising council buildings and our leisure centres - saving significantly on energy bills, building new council houses - well insulated and cheap to heat, improving our parks and open spaces, planting trees and wilflower beds, and a new draft local plan that both protects Teignbridge from speculative developers and introduces new climate change measures that developers will have to follow.
But there is much more to do.
Thank you for support the Lib Dems on May 4th. Now we can continue improving the council, tackling climate change and build more new modern warm and affordable council homes.
Liberal Democrats see the best in things. We celebrate diversity - and nonconformity and if something isn't working we try to fix it or we fight for reform. We are committed to representing local people and making sure your voices are heard.
