Council elections 3rd May

Check out the Labour Party’s manifesto for Lambeth council elections on Thursday 3rd May at https://lambeth-labour-manifesto.org/

This manifesto has been drawn up with hundreds of local people to create a positive and ambitious vision for a better, fairer Lambeth that aims to improve the lives of all Lambeth residents.

It builds on Labour’s strong record over the last four years – including building the first new council homes in a generation, protecting our 23 fantastic children’s centres and paying every Lambeth employee at least the London Living Wage.

Labour promises are:

  1. Tackling Lambeth’s housing crisis – by completing our ambitious programme of 1,000 council homes and introducing a new private renters charter
  2. A cleaner and greener Lambeth – by keeping a full weekly bin collection, boosting recycling and improving air quality
  3. Delivering value for money – by keeping council tax one of the lowest in London
  4. A safer Lambeth – by tackling youth violence and fighting Tory police cuts
  5. A more equal Lambeth – by creating 1,500 apprenticeships and encouraging every Lambeth business to pay the London Living Wage
  6. Fighting against a Tory Hard Brexit – by campaigning to defend the rights of our EU friends and neighbours
