One-hour free car parking

We believe in fighting poverty, and that the cost of parking is too high. Motorists are not all wealthy, and many people need a car in a semi-rural area such as Calderdale.  We want to encourage people to shop locally in their own Towns. We would do this by ensuring that all of our Towns had one-hour free parking. This would boost local businesses whilst ensuring that parking spaces were not taken up all day long.

Campaign for better-integrated transport systems

We’ll continue to press for significant improvement to the rail services (electrification of the Calder Valley line, modern railway carriages, the station at Elland) and we’ve protected and improved local buses. We’re supporting more cycling and walking, and reducing carbon emissions (and cleaner air) by electric cars. But we want to do more than that and make certain that transport is properly integrated so the system works well for local people.

Powered two-wheelers (PTW)

We would develop a policy to support the use of powered two wheelers. This generally have lower CO2 and congestion consquences as a form of transport.


We would seek to promote cycling and ring-fence a percentage of all Highways Spending to improve cycling infrastructure.

Electric Busses

A Liberal Democrat Council would work to providing a fleet of electric on demand buses to operate around Town Centres. We would support free hop on and hop off buses in Halifax Town Centre
