Support for continued EU membership

Leaving the EU will have a significant effect on the economy of Cheltenham, it workers, businesses and public sector organisations. We believe that the Borough Council should make clear the opposition of Cheltenham to Brexit and it's determination to mitigate the local impact of Brexit, should it actually happen.

Public Transport Hub

We propose the establishment of an integrated public transport hub at Cheltenham Lansdown station providing bus/rail/taxi interchange together with better car parking facilities and enhanced links to the Park and Ride facilities. Such a Hub would act as the 'front door' to Cheltenham for all local visitors
