Here is our manifesto for the South Cambs District Council elections on May 5.

You can find out all about our candidates here - www.southcambslabour.org.uk/elections_info

 

Labour will give a voice to those who seem to have no voice on the current district council.

We will give a voice to those who cannot afford to live in the villages in which they were born.

We will fight for 40 per cent affordable housing in any local tendering as a priority.

We will oppose the reduction of the local affordable housing stock by the Government's insistence on the sale of high value homes to fund its right to buy policy.

A Labour group on South Cambs District Council will give a voice to those gridlocked in Cambridge on the way to and from work.

We will try to persuade the Tory-controlled county council to drop the ridiculous £1 park and ride charges, and we will support the building of more park and rides as well as working with local bus companies to improve services in and out of the city.

If elected in South Cambs Labour councillors will give a voice to those who do not want their street lights turned off at night.

The city council has seen the good sense in keeping them on to reduce danger on the streets, and we will work with parish councils to keep lights on in dangerous unlit areas.

Labour will also give a voice to older people who need support in South Cambridgeshir.

We will work with the county council to improve adult care, so that care workers have longer than 15 minutes per client to undertake basic services.

We have people living locally in homes worth millions, yet we have Third World services.

Labour believes in a fairer and better South Cambridgeshire.
