Voice of Lincoln: What people want from the local elections

Homelessness, street cleaning and public transport were some of the issues raised by Lincoln residents ahead of Thursday’s local elections.

A third of the Labour-led City of Lincoln council seats are up for the vote – they are in the Glebe, Castle, Abbey, Carholme, Park, Boultham, Moorland, Witham, Minster, Hartsholme and Birchwood wards.

Ahead of the big day, local people have been telling Local Democracy Reporter Daniel Jaines their view on the streets of Lincoln.

Some called for more to be done to improve public transport around the city, while others called for help with traffic.

The effect of immigration on local job availability and services, as well as a bias against the elderly was also mentioned.

Parking, potholes and the national vote over Brexit also raised their heads.

Labour currently holds power on the authority with 24 members holding seats.

The other nine seats are held by the Conservative party.
