    Liberal Democrat and Green councillors plus one Independent councillor on South Hams District Council joined forces to propose an amendment to the proposed 2020/21 Budget that called for funds to be allocated for climate change projects.

    The Lib Dem and Green councillors took the view that the current proposed budget ignored the key issue of climate change. There was nothing proposed to back up the Climate Change Action Plan being produced by SHDC other than to appoint a climate change officer who will spend half of his/her time with West Devon and without a budget.

    The Liberal Democrat Party Conference was like a breath of fresh air and it was lovely to be there with Caroline Voaden and Keith Smith.

    It wasn't just sunshine on the outside in Bournemouth, there was genuine warmth and optimism from around the main hall, fringes and networks. I was at home amongst hundreds of first time attendees enjoying the wide ranging debates around the motions and policy ideas.

However, it is difficult to see how a General Election cannot take place within the foreseeable future.
