    Kent County Councillor for Maidstone South, Brian Clark has highlighted the plight of residents at the Dorothy Lucy Centre who have received little in the way of reassurance that suitable alternative provision will be provided should the centre close. This is despite the assurances given to Cllr Clark by the Cabinet Member for Adult Social Services at the full council meeting of 22nd October 2015 that residents and day visitors would continue to receive high quality care at suitable alternative locations.

    There is a certain irony in 16 and 17-year-olds having to rely on unelected peers to stand up for their democratic rights. But as with opposition to tax credits, when Liberal Democrats have the opportunity to force the government to look again at bad decisions then we will do so. And we should be clear that excluding 16 and 17-year-olds from the debate over the UK's place in Europe would be a bad decision.

    At the County Council meeting last Thursday Liberal Democrats won an almost unanimous vote on a proposal they put forward. They requested that the Chairman be mandated to write to David Cameron urging his Government to continue free school meals for the youngest children in primary schools. The Kent Liberal Democrats had been alarmed to hear that the Chancellor had all educational spending apart from pupil funding in his sights for cuts.

    and Bryan Vizzard & James Willis (Heath Ward)

    We are writing to you concerning the planning appeal relating to the land off Hermitage Lane known as Bluebell Woods. As residents will know, following the refusal of planning permission by the planning committee of Maidstone Borough Council, the applicant appealed. This appeal was heard by a Planning Inspector in June this year and his recommendations were subsequently passed to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Greg Clark MP.

    Kent County Council phone scam

    We have received a number of reports of scam phone calls from people claiming to be from Kent County Council. The caller asks if you have contacted the NHS about a recent accident you, or a member of your family has had.

    The telephone number used to make these calls is 03000 414000, which was a telephone number for Kent County Council. Please be aware that the calls are not being made by Kent County Council, this number is being replicated by caller ID spoofing equipment as part of a scam or hoax and is no longer in use.

Tim Farron - Leader of the Liberal DemocratsThe Liberal Democrats exist to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.

We champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals, we acknowledge and respect their right to freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents to the full. We aim to disperse power, to foster diversity and to nurture creativity.

We believe that the role of the state is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions which affect their lives.
