Ealing Labour has today announced their top 5 priorities if we are elected to run the council on May 22nd. The pledges are the top five things a Labour council would do after the upcoming local election.
The pledges are:
We will keep council tax low with a fifth consecutive council tax freeze next year
We will continue to campaign to save our hospitals from Tory cuts, including a blue light service at Ealing & Charing Cross A&Es
We will install new CCTV, alley gates and street lighting in crime hotspots.
We will make Ealing cleaner, including 50% recycling by 2018
We will build at least 500 new council homes and create 500 apprenticeships for young people
Labour leader Cllr Julian Bell unveiled the pledges as part of the new pledge card which Labour will be distributing to all voters. He said:
“This pledge card is a simple and clear indication of what a Labour council will mean for residents of the borough. We will build on our achievements of the last 4 years, delivering a council tax freeze for the fifth consecutive year, continuing the fight to save our hospitals and addressing the key residents’ concerns of tackling crime, keeping the borough clean, protecting the environment, investing in young people and delivering more affordable homes.
In the face of continued cuts to our budgets by the Tory-led Government we are determined to keep improving council services for local people and delivering major investment projects in our schools, town centres and housing estates.”
