Liberal Democrats in Swansea stand against voter ID plans, as a notice of motion is put forward to Swansea council that shows the level of support against the UK government plans to make people show a form ID to vote in General Elections.
The Swansea Liberal Democrats Councillors report on the work they are doing for their communities in the council meeting.
In the July meeting of Swansea Council issues, we raised included.
- When will the NEAT teams restart their work helping kept our communities tidy?
- What are the future plans to maintain shared user paths?
- A question on the future of the civic centre.
- Will the council be clear on the city deal.

CLYNE PATHS UPDATE.
In this update.....
As you will have seen, work has started to apply the tarmac finish. We have been told by the contractor that the work is likely to take up to 4 weeks to complete.
We want to thank you for the incredible support you have given to the campaign.
The Council’s own Scrutiny Programme Committee undertook an investigation into how consultation on the project (and others including the Mayals Road and Sketty Park link schemes) was undertaken. Mike Day and others presented evidence to the Committee.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT
Following pressure from the petition, and our questions, the Council has commissioned an Ecologist for the scheme.
Concerns over the safety of Shared Use Paths continue to be brought to us by worried users, whether pedestrians or cyclists, and a few near misses reported to us in recent weeks.
FUTURE SCHEMES, Active Travel Network
As part of the Council’s development of the Active Travel Network, further schemes are being worked up, some of which impact the Sketty ward.

Residents left concerned and in fear following Prom Scenes.
As the weather has improved and we all welcome the slow lifting of lockdown restrictions, anti-social behaviour is on the rise and some scenes have left residents concerned.
As costs of big projects stack up a further 3% rise planned after Labour reject Lib Dem amendment.
An almost 50% rise in Council Tax since 2012 under Labour is simply unacceptable. That’s an extra £566 on a band B property in a year!
Swansea West Candidate Chloe Hutchinson: The Vaccine Rollout.
The vaccine roll-out has been a national success story, and more than 120,000 people in the Swansea Bay UHB area have received their first jab. There are two main vaccines that have been given so far (Pfizer/ BioNTech and Oxford/ AstraZeneca).
Research shows that they are both highly effective at preventing serious Coronavirus, and we would urge everyone eligible to get vaccinated.
The Labour Council have recently confirmed plans to build on the Slipway, refusing to listen to residents.
