PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The Conservatives on Cambridgeshire County Council are not releasing an official manifesto for the election, but the group’s leader has made the case for why people should stick with them. Cambridgeshire will elect all 61 seats on the county council when the local elections are held on May 6. The Conservative group currently holds the majority with 34 councillors. The next largest group is the Liberal Democrats with 16. On the question of not producing a manifesto, the leader of the Conservative group, Steve Count, said: “We have been decisive as early as possible, based on evidence, rather than wait for an opportunity to market ourselves to the populace once every four years. “We leave that to the other parties, who save up anything that even resembles a good idea, to launch on the public in the form of a manifesto. Whereas we have preferred to act on an everyday basis and let our record speak for itself.” 'Damaging four years of no overall control' before 2017 Outlining his group’s message to voters, he said the Conservatives have provided “clear and decisive leadership” after a “damaging four years of no overall control” before the party won a majority in 2017. “Our Conservative strategies are not short term, designed so you vote for us every four years. They are designed so that in 40 years’ time someone else is glad you did,” he said. Cllr Count said his Conservative group plan to continue to “put people at the heart of all our policies”, use resources “efficiently and effectively”, work towards a “green” future, further “integrate” health and social care, “increase skills training”, “reduce social and health inequality”, as well as “build back better” following the pandemic with “investments, skills training, and financial commitments to the green agenda”. But he would not be drawn on specifics on future plans in any of those policy areas, beyond mentioning support for a Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro.

. He said that when adjusted for population, Cambridgeshire County Council “manages effective service delivery and high outcomes for £100million a year less” than the average county council. He said that under his party’s leadership the council has been “at the forefront of climate change and environmental protection actions”. And he highlighted that the Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council corporate energy strategy was described as “essential reading” by Friends of the Earth in 2019. He also said that under his party’s leadership the council is expanding its solar energy capacity, and has allocated £16 million to “bring forward plans to decarbonise our own estate”.

He also said his party has increased funding for a “local highways initiative”, which allows the lowest level of local government, parish and town councils – with an alternative system in Cambridge – to bid for highways improvements in their area, albeit not maintenance related. He also highlighted the council’s adult social care “rehabilitation programme”, saying “most people do not wish to be dependent on the state for support or move from a home they have lived in all their life”, arguing the programme reduces dependency on adult social care services, “is delivering better outcomes for our residents”, and “the fact that there is a saving for the adult social care budget is a bonus”. He also emphasised the community hubs set up through the pandemic, arguing a focus on “community resilience” allowed them to be brought in “quickly and effectively”.
