Watford Liberal Democrats have slammed local Labour councillors after they voted against plans for new youth sports facilities in Oxhey Park at last night’s Development Management Control meeting.
The plans in Oxhey Park, which were given the green light at the meeting through votes from Liberal Democrat councillors, involved the building of a new sports facilities for young people as well as a new ‘Community Hub’ complete with a café. The petition shown in the meeting against the scheme was presented by a senior Labour activist.
Cllr Stephen Johnson, portfolio holder for Property and Development and Liberal Democrat member of the Development Management Committee said, ‘It simply beggars belief that, just a day after criticising the council for not providing youth facilities, that the same Labour councillors vote against a scheme that aims to do just that.

It simply isn’t right to say one thing in leaflets and in meetings but to vote in another way when it comes to the crunch.

‘I’m proud that Liberal Democrats have supported two schemes that will massively benefit everyone in Watford, whether that be giving young people fantastic new sports facilities or by providing homes that are much more affordable for struggling local residents. The Liberal Democrats are keeping the town on the up
