The Lib Dems are determined to reduce crime affecting residents and businesses in Taunton Deane. We have already brought a proposal to Taunton Deane Borough Council with positive suggestions on how to tackle crime but this has only been agreed in part. We need to do more.
We are engaging with stakeholders, business users, hospitals, and residents to find the best solution.
To quote the Manager of the Orchard Shopping Centre, “I am sick and tired of people urinating in our doorways, drug use and anti-social behaviour is now out of control. I have taken the issue up with both the leader of Taunton Deane Council and Rebecca Pow MP and neither are interested!”
Lib Dems believe that we must make our town a pleasant and safe place to do business, to attract shoppers and visitors back to the county town of Somerset.
We are asking your opinion, as a resident or businessperson in Taunton Deane, to present to the Council, please tell us what has gone wrong and how to put it right:
