Conservative record of FAILURE The Conservative Government has taken YEARS to agree Eastleigh Borough Council’s Local Plan that gives more planning protection to greenfield sites between Bishopstoke, Fair Oak and West End. And here, County Tories prefer to spend £1,000,000 on their Council chamber while cutting services!

Labour out of the race
Labour are out of the election race. They have NO Borough councillors and NO chance! They came third in the vote for our MP just two years ago, as they have done in every General Election for 40 years. Only the Liberal Democrats have a record of winning here against the Conservatives.

3 Good reasons to back Anne again on 5th May

  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 YOUR tax in the County bank - they don’t deserve to win!
  3. The Liberal Democrats stand up for Fair Oak all year, every year - Anne is a key member of the FOCUS team. ONLY the Lib Dems keep in touch all year round

Across England ONLY Lib Dems are making gains from Boris and the Tories!

ACTION FROM THE LIB DEM TEAM FOR OUR VILLAGES

3 Things to Remember about this election

Clean Sweep for StreetScene team! For the 11th year running our Borough Council has won the local government Oscars" for national best performers in street cleansing and parks Well done team!

Privatised Parking!
Hampshire County Council is responsible for ALL our roods and traffic issues The Conservative County has let us down Hampshire County Council is taking over responsibility for ALL on-street parking in the County next year.
County Conservatives plan more on-street parking charges and to have a service run by a for-profit private company with tough income-raising targets. And Hampshire will hike up the cost of residents’ parking permits tool Your Lib Dems are campaigning for commonsense and that the County Council put people before profit. On YOUR side all year, every year!

Council Tax Guarantee The Lib Dems at Eastleigh have cut the Borough’s part of Council Tax in real terms for 19 YEARS running - real action to tackle the rising cost of living and protect your pocket Our Guarantee runs into the future to protect YOUR pocket.
Hampshire’s Conservatives have hiked the County Tax by 25% in just six years and cut services. We can’t afford the Conservatives running Eastleigh!

HIKE TAX ON OIL & GAS BOSSES TO HELP STRUGGLING FAMILIES Lib Dems Demand: Tackle the Cost of Living Crisis Sign our Petition!
While energy bills rise for families, energy firms are making record profits. It’s time for a one-off ‘Robin Hood Tax on the oil and gas barons’ mega profits to fund extra support for those hardest hit by energy price hikes The levy would raise £5 billion to help the most vulnerable by doubling and extending the Warm Homes Discount, doubling the Winter Fuel Allowance, and reducing bills in the long term by investing in insulation and energy saving The Conservatives have ignored rising bills for too long. We need action now so people aren’t forced to choose between heating and eating this winter Back the Lib Dem “Robin Hood” Tax at change.libdems.org.uk/robinhood

Affordable homes
Our Lib Dem Council has built over 1200 affordable homes for local families in the last four years. The Council is also building market rental homes available on “family friendly” lifetime tenancies The first of these in Eastleigh, West End and Bursledon are now occupied These tenancies convert to ownership where tenants choose, taking account of rent paid. That’s putting young people and the next generation first, and not just about lat profits for big building companies

Real solutions from our Lib Dem team for the next generation.

Confusion reigns here @afdy . Is Ms Winstanley for Bishy, or for Fair Oak? Leaflet mentions FO, hence why I’m a touch confused

Anne’s for Bishopstoke, but dropped the leaflet to people in Fair Oak claiming to be for Fair Oak. There is confusion here because the Bishopstoke ward boundary overlaps Fair Oak.

I suspect Anne modified the leaflet to make her sound more attractive to people who live in Fair Oak.

Also crazy on this leaflet:

  • It almost a direct copy of 2022 Fair Oak Nick Couldrey (Lib Dem)
  • Anne voted FOR the destruction of these greenfields and avoided representing residents by voting to delegate all decision making to council leader Keith House, yet claims on the leaflet: “Anne is determined to protect our village’s identity and secured the Borough Council’s support to keep the greenfields north of the village saved from building”.
  • “Conservatives have taken years to agree the local plan” - but fails to mention they failed to agree because it WAS a bad plan which destroyed greenfields, residents evidenced this but Anne’s team ignored (See last comment). In the end the Lib Dem plan failed and they had to change the local plan to incorporate residents/inspectors feedback. The local community, Bishopstoke Independents, and Conservatives worked together to save the green space.
