Elections 2015 – Liberal Democrats: Martin Mullaney
Friday, 1st May 2015
I am proud to say I represented Moseley and Kings Heath as a councillor for eight years, 2004 to 2012. I worked ‘full time’ in the role, maintaining a daily dialogue with the wider community through regular leaflets, emails and blogs.
If returned I will:
• Revisit the abandoned funding bid I developed with council officers to save Moseley Road Baths. Within weeks of Labour taking control of the city in 2012 their closure was announced – despite publishing pre-election leaflets promising the baths would be saved.
• Rebuild the case for Billesley Lane Allotments, when their current lease ends in 2018. I worked to protect the allotments through planning law and was on the verge of securing their future. Now, progress has stalled through inaction and poor leadership by Labour councillors.
• Practically support Moseley in Bloom, local parks and residents’ groups who do amazing things to make the ward a better place. Many say they rarely see their ‘part time’ Councillors these days.
• Restore and protect Moseley’s architectural character and green spaces; as evidenced by my work that helped to extend the Moseley conservation area.
• Reignite the campaign to reopen the Moseley and Kings Heath railway stations.
