Our Five Priorities
We want good housing that ordinary Mancunians can afford in all parts of the city, strong landlord licensing, tenants unions and a new council house building programme.
A Cleaner, Greener City
We want more trees, pocket parks and pedestrianised areas, good public transport and to tackle the blight of air pollution. We will hold Biffa & commercial waste companies to account, and if they’re not doing the job, call for services to come back in house.
A Fair Deal from Developers
We welcome people who want to come live, work and invest in Manchester. But that must mean investment for the long term, and developers paying their fair share through contributions to our city, never a smash and grab that leaves Mancunians poorer.
Preserving our Heritage
Manchester is the second city of England, the first city of the industrialised world. We need to retain the sense of place and the character that makes our home a destination for people from all over the world, and promote new designs which incorporate as much as possible of what we already have.
Greater Manchester Police has lost 2000 cops over the last 8 years. Citizens are now even more concerned about antisocial behaviour in the city centre. We will continue to argue for more police funding from central government, as well as the targeting of police presence in areas of greatest need. We will continue to explore all routes to make our ward safer.
