Mission 3: Pride
Pride in our town centres and neighbourhoods
- Make town centres and high streets places where people want to live, work, visit and own businesses
- Innovation in making roads better, streets cleaner, and neighbourhoods safer and greener
- Tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in partnership with the Police
- Cherish libraries, community centres and leisure facilities
- Invest in parks, play areas, sports fields and green space so there is something for everyone near to where they live
Being proud of where you live is so important to people: the shops we visit, the parks we enjoy, the facilities and services we rely on.
Despite the challenges of Conservative austerity, local Labour councillors continue to secure investment in our town centres, we’ve also kept our museums, leisure centres, libraries and community centres running, because we believe in protecting the fabric of society. Despite over half a billion pound of government cuts, we continue to invest more in street cleansing, community safety, fly-tipping removal and grass cutting than the average Conservative council. We do this because we care.
We believe in a strong relationship between people and the places they live, work, learn or spend their leisure time. We recognise the importance of spaces in every community for families, friends, neighbours and strangers to come together to share in experiences, and where businesses, charities, public services and residents can co-locate.
Locally, Labour has held the line against government cuts – we’re the ones keeping community facilities open. That’s why a vote for Labour is a vote for HOPE on Thursday 4th May.
