Lydiard Park carparking petition

After Tory-run Swindon Council introduced car parking charges at Lydiard Park, they have done nothing to tackle those Lydiard Park users who are avoiding the parking charges by parking in neighbouring streets near to the park. During peak times at Lydiard, this has led to some streets in Grange Park crammed full of cars because people want to avoid the parking charges.

Your local Labour Team is calling on Tory-run Swindon Borough Council to tackle this problem on behalf of Grange Park residents.

Dial a Ride Future Still Remains Uncertain

Labour Councillor and Dial a Ride campaigner, Derique Montaut, has called on the Conservative administrative to secure the long-term future of Dial a Ride, after the Conservative administration breached previous promises to secure funding from new income streams to mitigate the effects of Dial a Ride’s 50% funding cut.

Last year when the Council was seeking to cut Dial a Ride’s council funding by 50%, a petition with 4000 signatures was submitted calling on Swindon Council to secure Dial a Ride’s future.

Sarah Church Selected as Candidate for South Swindon

I am delighted to have been selected to stand as the Labour Party candidate in South Swindon in June’s General Election, subject to final endorsement by the National Executive Committee.

I am pleased and proud to stand in the town where my grandfather was born and where generations of my family worked inside GWR. We came back to the area with my job in the Army and since leaving the forces I have campaigned to protect our libraries as the Chair of the Save Swindon’s Libraries campaign.

Time For A Fairer Deal For Toothill & Westlea Through Your New Parish

For many years Toothill has been forgotten about by Tory-run Swindon Council. There has been chronic under- investment in the area and decisions have been made for Toothill that aren't the best for the local community. While other West Swindon wards have benefitted from new amenities and play areas, Toothill has not.
