THE SOUTHPORT PARTY
THE SOUTHPORT PARTY IS TOTALLY INDEPENDENT . WE HAVE NO CONNECTION WITH ANY OTHER POLITICAL PARTY.
Thank you for visiting our site.
OUR CORE BELIEF.
The party desire is to have Southport leave Sefton Council and become the major part of a new unitary authority within the traditional county Palatine of Lancashire more suited to our resort status.
POLITICAL REPORT FOR 10th A.G.M. FEBRUARY 4th 2013
The Party continues with its core desire to have Southport leave Sefton Council and become a major part of a new unitary council within, but not governed by, the traditional County of Lancashire.
With the new Bootle led political make up of Sefton and the new Liverpool City Region and impending Mayor of this region, which the SP has been warning residents and local councillors about for over three years, it makes this aspiration even more significant for the well being of Southport.
We will oppose a Liverpool City Mayor presiding over Southport.
Elections - Party representatives stood in three wards in 2012 and again increased the votes of the previous year in each ward. Our candidates and campaign organisers worked hard for this result.
The Southport Party continues to campaign all year on issues of public concern; the Botanic Gardens and Hesketh Park attractions were again under threat which was stopped with our help, the Beach condition and silly traffic calming measures were targeted and many public issues were taken up with Sefton Council officers, either on a one to one basis or at the Area Committee meetings.
Many party members are also involved with the Kings Gardens and Botanic Gardens restoration projects.
The Southport Party will continue to help and advise residents with their concerns if possible, and wage campaigns against matters of public concern, and will continue to hold open public meetings twice a month at the Royal Clifton Hotel.
The Party will continue to put forward candidates in all or selected Southport Wards. However, with or without councillors, our resolve is to drive up standards that are neglected by Sefton Council to those condusive to a safe, clean and friendly resort, and to press for a return of the quality of services and facilities that were enjoyed in Southport when as an independent borough it had the lowest rates in the country.
We oppose any take over by Bootle and the Liverpool City Region.
The Southport Party is an apolitical self funding party dedicated to Southport, its residents and visitors.
D.C.Cobham, (political secretary) December 2012.
