Maxie's Plan for Borehamwood

  1. Help schoolchildren More help for disadvantaged pupils, including more educational support and expansion of free school meals. North Borehamwood includes, around Leeming Road, the most deprived neighbourhood in Hertfordshire, yet Tory county councillors take no interest. That has to change. We will also fight for a new secular secondary school - it's absurd that Borehamwood has 31,000 residents but only one mainstream school.
  2. Stay in touch Borehamwood's Tory councillors have no interest in what residents want or need. When was the last time they bothered trying to find out? Lib Dems have a different approach, with a guarantee of monthly residents' surgeries and a new hotline for reporting local problems.
  3. Greener A cycle lane for Theobald Street. Expansion of rooftop solar power. Improve 292 bus service. Get more household waste recycled.
  4. Protect Borehamwood's greenspace and hertiage
  5. Safer, Better Highways Restore a fair share of county funding and fix Borehamwood's roads and pavements. A 20mph limit for Brook Road and Cowley Hill.
