The Liberal Democrats have slammed the Conservative Government for being soft on crime, as they reveal that 83.8% of burglaries in Surrey went unsolved by the police last year.
Analysis by the Liberal Democrats of new Home Office figures show that 3265 burglary cases were closed by Surrey in 2021, but in 2735 of them no suspect was identified. That equates to 53 unsolved local burglaries every week.
We often get told that politicians are all the same. Runnymede is traditionally a very Conservative area but, having broken the mould in 2019 with 3 elected Liberal Democrat councillors, we are proving that we are not all the same. We have knocked on doors where people say that no one has ever bothered to knock before. We care about what residents want and will always fight their corner. A good reason to vote Liberal Democrat on 5th May.
Surrey County Council has launched a public consultation on increases to on-street parking charges including those for residents' parking permits, with the aim of increasing parking revenue by £334,000 per year across the range of measures.
Notably the cost of parking permits is set to rise over 60% for the first vehicle in a household, increasing from £50 to £80. Additional household permits will go up from £75 to £100 for the second permit and to £130 for subsequent ones.
