The party which is now the main opposition to the Labour-led administration in Milton Keynes has announced its front bench for the next year.

The Leader will be supported by Deputy Leader Councillor Jane Carr who will hold the Health and Adult Social Care and Reducing Inequalities portfolio.

Whilst Group Chair, Councillor Kerrie Bradburn takes on the role of Environment, Sustainability, and Climate Change.

Experienced Councillor Paul Trendall will be responsible for the Customer and Regulatory Services and Highways and Transport brief.

While longstanding Councillor Jenni Ferrans will hold the Planning, Community, and Housing portfolio.

Shenley Brook End councillors Peter Cannon will become responsible for Finance and Resources and Sophie Bell will take on the portfolio for Children and Families.

Lib Dem Leader, Councillor Robin Bradburn, said:

“I’m delighted to announce our new experienced and effective team that will hold the Labour administration to account.

“Whilst working with Labour in the Progressive Alliance we supported residents through the cost-of-living crisis, repaired thousands of potholes, and delivered free activity sessions for children during the school holidays.

“Over the next year, we will build on our successes and push key issues that matter to residents such as housing and transport. Unlike the Tories the people of Milton Keynes can rely on us to be a responsible and constructive opposition.”
