Our Priorities for Bath & Somerset

VOTE FOR A UKIP COUNCILLOR TO GET BETTER LOCAL GOVERNMENT IN BATH AND SOMERSET

WE WILL PUT LOCAL RESIDENTS FIRST 

Our local council has a duty to respect the interests of local residents and not capitulate to the interests of big business or big government.  We understand the concerns and distress caused to residents by continual changes to and ever reducing public services. We would seek the consent of local people to changes, and not simply impose them.  We would give priority to local residents for housing, education, health and social services. In planning, we would respect the opinion of local residents, and we not over-rule them

WE WILL BRING LOCAL DECISION MAKING CLOSER TO LOCAL RESIDENTS 

We believe in real devolution and real local decision-making. We will provide incentives to encourage local enterprise; attract local jobs and re-invigorate our local town centres and local high streets. We will fight to save our rural countryside and green spaces and will not cover them with concrete to become an overflow for overcrowded cities. We believe it is important to ensure that local residents and service veterans should always come first in the allocation of social housing in Bath & Somerset.

WE WILL FIGHT CRIME AND ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR

In Bath & Somerset, we still suffer from an unacceptable level of crime and anti-social behaviour. We aim to overhaul systems to make sentences meaningful; rehabilitate offenders; deport foreign criminals; free our Police from excessive form filling; tackle nuisance neighbours and anti-social behaviour. In short, we will fight to make our communities safe places in which we can feel proud to work and live.

WE WILL SPEND OUR MONEY ON OUR OWN PEOPLE’S NEEDS 

The UK has been wasting massive amounts of money. Much of our huge Foreign Aid budget has not been reaching genuine causes such as a need for drinking water, inoculations or disaster relief.  Our priority is to focus future spending on domestic needs such as home care for the elderly; the most vulnerable; public services; health care; policing and run-down roads

WE WILL TAKE BACK CONTROL OVER DEVELOPMENT

Housing, education, health and social services cannot cope with constantly rising numbers of people coming to live and work in Bath & Somerset. Our council gives insufficient thought to the lack of new services, infrastructure and jobs needed to support the influx of new people moving into our area to occupy new houses. Our councillors will strictly control new house building which is destroying good farmland and the rural green belt and which is causing much of northern Somerset to merge with Bristol in one massive urban sprawl. 

WE WILL SUPPORT LOCAL REFERENDUMS

We believe in direct democracy and the ability of local residents to know what’s best for our community.  We would give voters more power and would submit major decisions to binding local referendums, if local residents ask for them. We believe in respecting the hopes and desires of local people. By electing UK Independence Party Councillors in Bath & Somerset, you will take the vital first step towards restoring the rights of local people within our community
