Liberal Democrats pledge to mitigate against austerity cuts by working with voluntary organisations to find long-term solutions for the city’s low income or vulnerable families.

They would make tackling homelessness a priority and commit to building homes and hostels on council-owned land.

“We believe that homelessness devastates lives,” said leader Douglas McCall.

The Lib Dems support regeneration of MK’s older estates but say all schemes must be backed by residents after robust consultation.

They remain committed to non-selective education and believe in good schools for everyone.

Mr McCall also pledged to support the economy.

, particularly through helping young people into work for the first time.

He has also promised action on potholes, slamming the council’s current hole repair policy as “not fit for purpose” and accusing contractors of spending more time measuring potholes than filling them.
