Labour local election manifesto launched

Southend Labour has unveiled its election manifesto for the Southend Council elections on Thursday 22 May.

Southend Labour has unveiled its election manifesto for the Southend Council elections on Thursday 22 May.

 

Southend is in many respects a wonderful place to live and work, but we all know that it also has a number of serious issues that require action.

 

Hunger and homelessness, drug and alcohol addiction, street begging, are all growing problems that are blighting parts of the town. We must not ignore them. We need robust enforcement to deal with people acting anti-socially, but we also need to be much better at treating the underlying problems of homelessness, poverty and poor mental health. The issues of poverty, poor housing, poor health and unemployment are intrinsically linked and must be tackled together.

 

Many parts of our town suffer from neglect. Bad landlords whose overcrowded and poor quality housing causes nuisance, landowners who leave property in a state of decay and dereliction, and developers who fail to show social responsibility to those around them.

 

Only Labour will take on these vested interests and put local residents first.
