Our local manifesto

Our candidates share a common vision for Redbridge:

  • Tackling the litter issues - Whether dog fouling, broken glass, takeaway boxes or fly-tipping, the council have failed to get a grip on this issue. We have challenged them on this, but could be more effective as councillors.
  • Residents are concerned about the general lack of school places, play areas and children’s centres, and the closure of our local police station and we would fight for these on residents' behalves.
  • Residents are also concerned about speeding and air pollution outside schools. Restrictions on parking are not popular, but if we want to breathe clean air, then we need to switch from using cars to walking, cycling and public transport, and the council should adopt and implement policies which favour pedestrians, cyclists and buses. Air pollution has a particularly bad effect on young children and the elderly, increasing the pressure on our already struggling Health Service.
  • The provision of genuine social housing should be foremost in council policy. It is essential that the council pressurizes builders to include meaningful percentages of social and affordable housing in their developments, and also implements its powers of bringing accommodation left empty by its owners into occupation.
  • An already overcrowded area does not require further high-rise developments. Any additional housing should be built with the consent of local residents, and must be genuinely affordable Council housing.
  • As with air quality, this is not a ‘stand-alone’ issue; people in housing deprivation and sub-standard accommodation are prone both to both physical and mental ill-health, which in turn adds to the pressure on our NHS.
  • It is essential to see the links between different issues; air quality, traffic control, housing, and health are intertwined. This is called ‘holistic’ (or more simply, ‘joined-up’ thinking), which is what the Green Party aims to supply. Other parties may have adopted a few ‘green’ policies, but only the Green Party puts the environment at the heart of its manifesto.
