    • Southern Rail train
      Article: Jun 11, 2018

      The disruption caused to local commuters by the recent train timetable changes continues with further alterations to timetables introduced today. Over the last 3 weeks commuters have put up with multiple delays and cancellations, a situation that we feel is unacceptable. Even Chris Grayling, the Conservative Transport Minister, has had to admit that 'the rail industry has collectively failed to deliver for the passengers it serves'. Stephen Lloyd, Lib Dem MP for Eastbourne, has been meeting with Southern Rail/GTR, Network Rail and the Rail Minister, putting pressure on them to rectify the situation. Stephen's recent interview about the situation can be viewed on Youtube.

      Thursday's elections saw major victories for the Lib Dems as we took control of Three Rivers, South Cambridgeshire, Richmond upon Thames and Kingston upon Thames councils. We also successfully defended our control of Eastleigh, South Lakes, Sutton, Cheltenham and Watford.

      Across the country we gained 75 council seats, whilst the Conservatives overall lost 33. Locally we gained seats in Mole Valley and Portsmouth where we are the main opposition. Our special congratulations go to Bob Smytherman who held on to his seat in Tarring in Worthing with a significant majority.

      West Sussex County Council provides a huge range of services across the district, such as social care for adults and young people, fire and rescue services, as well as looking after the majority of local roads.

      The council is currently consulting local residents on what matters most to them, to drive the priorities for their strategic plan. So its really important that as many local residents as possible fill out the survey. This can be done through picking up a copy of the survey at a local council office or library, or alternatively filling out the survey online here:
