The Liberal Democrats and the Green Party in Burgess Hill have agreed a ground-breaking partnership in Burgess Hill. They are pledging to work together for the benefit of the town and have agreed to back each other in the local elections on Thursday 2ndMay.

In a joint statement Joe Foster, local Lib Dem chair and Anne Eves for the Green Party said, "We want to show the town that it is possible for two political parties to work constructively together and fight for the improvements that the town deserves and is crying out for.

The Tories have run Burgess Hill Town Council and Mid Sussex District Councilas a closed shops for too many years even though they only get a minority of the votes. As a result open government has suffered and any criticism of their decision-making is treated with contempt. We want to change all of that for the good of the town.

You only have to look at some of the poor decision-making and lack of progress over the last 4 years to know that it is time for a change".

The Liberal Democrats and Green Party have agreed to work together in three key areas:

Environmental protection and development

Joe and Anne added, "Having a strong contingent of Liberal Democrats and Greens on Burgess Hill Town Council and Mid Sussex District Council will be a breath of fresh air providing

just the sort of 'grown-up politics' that Burgess Hill and Mid Sussex needs. We are not just a partnership between two parties but a partnership with the town's residents.
