Our 2022 Pledges
Recover from the Pandemic
Coronavirus has hit people’s incomes hard, so we will secure new well-paid jobs, support people back into work after lockdown and deliver more support for small and local businesses to thrive.
“We will secure 10,000 new, well paid jobs across the borough to help every family get a decent living income”
Tackle the Cost of Living
Since 2010, we’ve saved the average family £2,500, by keeping council tax either frozen or as low as possible and we will continue to do so. We’ll also ensure those on the lowest pay are protected.
“We will keep council tax low, help families with the cost of living and protect the most vulnerable”
Fight Crime & Antisocial Behaviour
After a decade of cuts from the government, the police have struggled to deal with antisocial behaviour and violent crime. We will campaign for the powers we need to enforce the rules to make our neighbourhoods safer, punish rule breakers, and ensure no one is above the law.
“We will invest £13m in fighting antisocial behaviour, burglary, violent crime and violence against women”
Genuinely Affordable Homes
London’s affordable housing crisis means we need to do everything we can to build more homes that cost no more than a third of household incomes, stop people being priced out of local housing, and build many more new council homes for rent.
“We will deliver 4,000 new & safe genuinely affordable homes”
Re-Grow, Re-Wild & Recycle
Everyone agrees we need to tackle the climate crisis, protect the environment and do even more to make our borough cleaner and greener, and make so much more of our borough open and accessible for people to enjoy.
“We will create 10 new parks and open spaces, plant 50,000 more trees, and give 800,000 sqm back to nature”
Fix Social Care
COVID-19 has shown clearly that the government should fix social care, so it is not left to council taxpayers. In the meantime, we’ll support 3,000 of the most vulnerable residents get the care they need in their own homes and deliver the London Living Wage for all care workers.,
“We’ve saved Ealing’s A&E, now we need to fix social care, supporting more people to stay at home and paying the London Living Wage to care workers”
