REDDITCH Labour Party has launched its manifesto for the local elections on May 2, 2019.
Key themes include improving existing housing and tackling the shortage of homes, ensuring people have a voice, including the young, celebrating diversity and holding developers and other organisations to account.
“Our Manifesto was influenced following our ‘Labour Listens’ campaign,” said local party leader Councillor Bill Hartnett.
“Party members have held street stalls, held meetings in community centres and been out on the doorsteps, we have had thousands of conversations with local residents across the borough throughout the year.
“Our manifesto sets out the Labour Party’s vision for Redditch.
“It covers all aspects of council activities including more social and genuinely affordable housing, town and district centres regeneration, young people and involving the community in decision making,
“We will work with local organisations to build a town we are all proud of and to make a Redditch an even better place to work and live in.”
He added that Redditch needed “a caring council and not a ‘me first’ and ‘cuts first’ approach to policies.
“Even though there is a lot going on nationwide these local Redditch Council elections are important and I would encourage all residents to vote on May 2.”
