Horsham Liberal Democrats

Louise Potter - Liberal Democrat Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Horsham

Read what Louise has to say:

Stop Brexit

Brexit is tearing our country apart. It's costing jobs at home and respect abroad. I want to be part of a tolerant and inclusive country within Europe. So let's stop Brexit now - we've got more important things to deal with

The wrong homes in the wrong places

We desperately need more affordable homes for our families and key workers. But the Tories are letting developers decide what they want to build. Not nearly enough of them are for local needs. We're being asked to find room for 10% more people in just 5 years - and an astonishing 40% in 18 years!

Fair funding for Public Services

All this new housebuilding comes without proper services. Everywhere you look, we're struggling. It's not fair on our teachers, doctors and social carers. The Tories said austerity was over - not for public services it isn't! I will fight to restore funding for schools, GPs and carers to sustainable levels.

Let's beat climate change

As a new District Councillor I helped declare a Climate Emergency in my first few weeks. This is just the start. I see green policy as an opportunity to do things better! We need strategies to achieve zero carbon emissions far sooner than 2050. That means better public transport, electric vehicles, more cycling and walking routes, and care for the environment.
