We’re excited to publish our “Manifesto for Stirling 2022-2027”, setting out what Labour Councillors will look to achieve over the next term of Stirling Council.
Above everything else, Labour Councillors will focus on addressing the Cost of Living crisis and improving our quality of life by providing local services that meet our needs.
Labour Group Leader, Councillor Chris Kane, says,
“There is a severe cost of living crisis which affects everyone in our communities, cutting the quality of life for most families and dragging more people into severe poverty. It is Labour’s primary mission to do all we can to lift people and communities out of poverty by using every power we have to improve the lives of those living in challenging circumstances. We must work hard and work together to build a Stirling which is safe and thriving and offers opportunities for all, with local services that meet our needs and improve our quality of life. I would encourage everybody to read our Manifesto for Stirling and vote for hard-working Labour councillors on 5th May.”
Stirling Labour’s Manifesto sets out our Priorities for Action in Stirling. It is organised around our key pledges setting out the actions which we will pursue throughout the term of the next Council. Among the commitments are:
Safe and thriving communities: with good street lighting and safe walking routes, access to libraries, sports facilities and cultural experiences. Well-maintained parks, roads and pathways, allotments and community gardens.
Children and Young People: access to high quality childcare and schools which are well resourced and give your children the best start in life.
Housing: affordable new build and regeneration schemes with a focus on modernisation and upgrading, insulation and carbon neutral electricity generation.
Transport: an integrated transport system for every community that is run for public good and not private profit.
Economic recovery, jobs & regeneration: a strong focus on the recovery of the local economy that will prioritise well-paying secure jobs. Encourage local job creation. Develop community wealth building strategies. Promote business models that support wellbeing. Recognise the contribution of our public sector key workers.
