The five priorities of the North Somerset Liberal Democrats are:

2. Crime and Community Safety - Investing in safer communities and crime prevention

3. Economy - Delivering green and inclusive economic growth

4. Environment - Protecting the environment and reaching net zero by 2030

5. Housing - Providing high-quality, affordable housing for all residents

The manifesto includes a detailed plan of action for each of these priorities, including creating timed 20mph zones around all schools, investing in special educational needs and disabilities, establishing a Crime Prevention Fund for all wards, driving investment in towns across North Somerset, and more.

"We believe that everyone in North Somerset deserves access to high-quality, affordable housing, a safe and supportive community, and a sustainable and prosperous future," said Councillor Mike Bell, Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group on North Somerset Council. "Our manifesto outlines a clear plan of action to achieve these goals and create a brighter future for all residents. We believe that by prioritizing the needs of our residents and protecting the environment, we can create a stronger, happier, and more resilient society."

The North Somerset Liberal Democrats are committed to working with local residents, businesses, and community groups to achieve these goals and create a better future for all. The local elections will take place on May 4, 2023, and the party encourages all residents to get involved and have their say in shaping the future of North Somerset.
