Our Plan for Sandwell - Standing up for our towns

In our manifesto, we outline how the Liberal Democrats will continue to stand up for our six towns and be ambitious for the borough.

We are fighting for improved local services, greater accountability, developing a strong local economy with more local jobs, and making Sandwell a great place to live.

We are making commitments that will provide more support and more activities for young people, better services for the elderly and vulnerable, quality and affordable housing for families, and action on protecting our environment.
