Haringey Liberal Democrats have revealed six key pledges in their bid to take control of the council in the upcoming local elections.

The six key pledges are:

1. More police on the beat - We will put more police on the beat when and where they are needed most with new 24 hour local police teams.

2. Fairer funding for our schools - We will fight to end Labour's unfair school funding system, which gives every Haringey child £1,000 a year less than children in neighbouring boroughs.

3. Secure future for Children's Services - We will end the culture of cover-up and secrecy on child protection, and protect funding for vital children's services.

4. Freeze Council Tax - We will freeze Council Tax until at least April 2012, by cutting waste - such as Labour's £3m PR budget.

5. Cleaner Streets - We will clean up Haringey's streets with 200 more litter bins and a 'Clean Streets Warden' from every neighbourhood.

6. Real Action on the Environment - We will take real action on the environment by boosting recycling and investing £5 million in a fund for green projects.
