2014 Local Election Manifesto

Labour Manifesto offers residents a council that’s on their side

This week Crawley Labour Party have launched their 2014 Local Election Manifesto, pledging to work towards ensuring Crawley residents have: 

  • A decent job 
  • A place to call home
  • A stronger community

Lead by Peter Lamb, Crawley Labour Party have spent two years putting their manifesto together, drawing on thousands of conversations between residents and Labour activists, research from a range or organisations and correspondence with other local authorities. The manifesto refocuses the council onto the key areas which can make the most difference to the lives of residents and help get Crawley back on the right track. 

Labour leader Cllr Peter Lamb said, "For far too long Crawley has been left in the grip of Conservative council chaos. When last in control, Crawley Labour councillors bought Tilgate Park, built K2 and the Hawth and still managed to put over £100m in reserves. The proposals outlined in our manifesto—built around a platform of jobs, homes and the community—will focus on the issues which matter to residents and help give Crawley back a council that’s on their side.”

Cllr Peter Smith (Shadow planning and economic development) said, "We have an exciting and ambitious set of policies and are ready to take action on behalf of Crawley people, to address the issues that concern Crawley people and to put Crawley first. We can implement local policies that will help to tackle the Tories ‘cost of living crisis’ and look to support everyday working people as they struggle to pay their bills with ever increasing prices and flat or falling wages.  And we have ambitious plans to rejuvenate the Town Centre while at the same time supporting Crawley businesses in Manor Royal and across the Town. We are the party with the ideas and the energy, that will lead the way forward for Crawley, drawing on the experiences of the early newtown ‘pioneer’ spirit that made Crawley the great town that it once was and can be again.” 

Labour PPC Cllr Chris Oxlade said, "Voting in a Labour Council in Crawley is just what is needed to help to turn-around the lack of drive and ideas coming from both the local Tories and the Tory government. After eight years of Tory mis-rule, it is time that Crawley people were put first and a Labour council will do just that. I wholeheartedly endorse this manifesto for Crawley.”
