Residents of Gowerton have their say on their key local issues in a survey done by local campaigner Matt Palmer.
Residents report having three priorities for the village and have a clear message for Swansea Council.
Matt Palmer and the local Liberal Democrats have been talking to local residents about issues affecting them. Local residents have said that they are proud of the village but feel let down by the Labour-run Swansea Council. At a time when residents have seen council tax go up, there are many local issues that they are failing to focus on.
The top three most common issues that you think Swansea Council need to focus on getting right.
1. Roads and Pavements
The condition of the roads and pavements was the top issue right across the village.
2. Dog Fouling and Bins
Dog waste bins are a key concern, particularly the time it takes to get them emptied.
The third top concern was littering, with some residents pointing out bad hot spots.
Local Liberal Democrat Matt Palmer said, “The council doesn't focus enough on the needs of communities like Gowerton and focuses too much on vanity projects. I am proud of the Lib Dem led opposition who are saying things don’t have to be this way.”
Matt Palmer, who has been selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate for Gowerton, added his priorities for the Village are:
- Cleaner Gowerton, tackling littering and vandalism.
- Greener Gowerton, looking after our outdoor spaces and investing in community projects.
- Safer Gowerton, dealing with the unsafe roads and pathways.
At the next election to Swansea Council, you will get TWO votes, to elect two councillors. The choice for the second
seat in Gowerton is between just another Labour Councillor who will go along with Swansea Labour Council vanity projects.
Matt Palmer as Liberal Democrats Councillor who will fight for Gowerton’s corner and will add to a strong voice holding the council to account about how they spend our money.
