Local authorities left defenceless by Government - Goldsworthy

Commenting on Hazel Blears’ announcement that new guidelines will be introduced to curb out-of-town superstores, Liberal Democrat Shadow Communities and Local Government Secretary, Julia Goldsworthy said:

"With centralised public services and widespread post office closures, this is a Government that has presided over the death of the high street and the degradation of village and town centres.

"Local authorities need back-up from the Government to support their fight to save their town centres.

"But this Government’s poor track record means it has a lot of work to do before anyone will believe that this will not just leave local authorities defenceless."
