    Statement on the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh

    Test Valley Liberal Democrats share the nation's feelings of sadness of the passing of HRH Duke of Edinburgh. The Duke dedicated his life to the Queen and service to our Country. He was also a practical and hardworking inspiration to us all and always stressed the need to get on with things. We acknowledge and respect his example.

    Latest Government figures show that the annual waste generated per person here reduced by less than the weight of 2 bags of sugar in 5 years.


    Only 36.9% of the waste collected from homes in Test Valley is recycled or reused compared with an average of 47.6% for the South East as a whole.

    Is it just coincidence that the top three councils for recycling in Hampshire are all controlled by Liberal Democrats?
    HCC too needs a clear plan to invest in renewables to create green energy.

    Liberal Democrats have the climate emergency at the heart of all of our policies. We will target zero emissions by 2035 - 15 years ahead of the current vague and unambitious plan.

    We will rethink public transport, support greening homes, tackle air quality and demand a healthier Hampshire for all.

    We need action - not excuses. We need ambition in Hampshire - not empty words. If we don't take action locally, it will literally cost us the Earth.

    Romsey, Hampshire, is a small Hampshire Market Town located six miles from Southampton. Its town centre clusters around the famous Norman Abbey and it has a large and characterful Conservation Area. Its suburbs are thus under very significant development pressure as residents from the nearby South Hampshire conurbation seek out the market town experience and move into the catchment of the town's excellent primary and secondary schools.
