Dear The Residents,
In May’s County Council elections, I will be standing for election for the local Lib Dems. Why?
Because our communities again need a strong, experienced voice standing up for them at the
County, and to give the best chance for change at Hampshire to put people first.
Over the last decade the Conservatives have increased council tax faster than earnings. That
has cost the average family an extra £250 in just the last five years. Meanwhile:
- Services for the young and old are cut.
- Our roads crumble as traffic gets worse: they’ve still no plan for a town Relief Road.
• Our infrastructure and public services buckle under the strain of more and more people.
• Our children cannot afford to live where they grew up.
Our countryside is under attack from developers, chasing massive targets for new houses
imposed by the Conservative Government.
The main problem is the year-on-year financial cuts imposed on the County by the Conservatives who want to control everything. I pledge to be the strong, independent, voice which is needed to demand a fair share for our area.
The pandemic means public money is going to be tight for some years. We know the Conservatives’ answer is always to cut services and investment, and it’s our old people, residents and communities which suffer.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Our Borough Council has proved services can be saved, and even improved, yet at the same time the Borough Council Tax has come down in real terms every year for 18 years. Over 1,000 social homes for local residents have been provided in the last three years. The Council will plant 160,000 new trees and is "rewilding” farms to protect our biodiversity and stop urban sprawl. Change for the better is possible.
I hope you will support me here this time. Working together we can get real improvements for Eastleigh, Boyatt Wood and Allbrook.
With best wishes
P.S. Please do get in touch – by email at Tanya.Park@eastleighlibdems.org.uk,
by phone on 07596 884481 - if we can be of any help to you.
Please back me here this time for new hope for Hampshire.
The local winners!

Everyone knows only the Lib Dems can beat the Tories
Lib Dems Win Here!"
Thursday 6th May - Hampshire County Council Election
This year’s County Council elections are important. They will decide who will stand up for our area and get the funds we need to tackle traffic and save community services.
Tanya has a record of fighting for our area. She is part of the team working all-year-round for
Eastleigh with FOCUS. Tanya is the ONLY candidate in this election who can hold Hampshire to account.
The only way to make sure we get Tanya and the team working for you again is to back Tanya in the election on Thursday, 6th May.
After 10 years of Conservative cuts to vital public services, we need a strong Lib Dem team to give hope to Hampshire
Three things to remember here…
1 Only the Liberal Democrats can beat the Tories in our area. Labour cannot win here.
2 The Conservatives have axed vital services at Hampshire - but are stashing £600,000,000 (yes that’s £600 MILLION) of YOUR tax in the County bank - they don’t deserve to win!
3 Only the Liberal Democrats stand up for our area all year, every year - and Tanya is a key member of the team.
Council Tax Guarantee
The Lib Dems’ 20 year Council Tax
Guarantee is protecting your pocket
right through to 2023 at Eastleigh.
The Lib Dems at Eastleigh have cut the Borough’s part of Council Tax in real terms over 18 years already - real action to tackle the rising cost of living and give you certainty with your finances.
Hampshire’s Conservatives have hiked the County Tax by 27% in just six years and cut services.
We can’t afford the Conservatives running Hampshire!
The Lib Dems are on YOUR side!
On 6th May, the Best Person for the job here is Tanya PARK"
