Lambeth Labour launches its manifesto

We recently launched our manifesto for Lambeth.

Despite loosing half of our funding from the Tory and Lib Dem government - we are still ambitious for Lambeth.  We aspire to build on the great work which has happened, hand in hand with our residents, since 2006 and improve even further. 

Just some of our pledges are; 

1.    Help you with the rising cost of living by freezing council tax for the sixth year in a row
2.    Boost jobs and grow local businesses by offering every young person access to job support, training or an apprenticeship
3.    Make Lambeth cleaner and greener by resurfacing 130 miles of roads and pavements and recycling more waste than ever before
4.    Create safer neighbourhoods and build the homes we need by campaigning to protect community police and building 1,000 new council homes
5.    Give young people the best start in life by offering free breakfasts in all our  primary schools
6.    Help to keep you healthy by getting more people involved in sporting activities and healthy exercise

  1. This is a good start. But more homes are needed. Many more homes to bring down house prices. My flat I rented in Brixton for the last year was sold for £455,000. Who on earth can actually afford this? I'm on a decent wage and I'm never going to be able to afford this. All the new flat developments you are approving are great but no one local can afford them. The stupid assist to buy scheme has over inflated prices. Even if you do open up more land to developers they are going to build flats that again no one can afford. How will you solve this? I'm even getting priced out of the rental market!!
