Bromley labour's pledges to you!
People before property
- Bromley Labour will invest in people and services, not in more commercial properties.
- Bromley Labour would set up groups of residents to monitor council services and we would review all contracts to ensure that the services we are paying for are being properly delivered. #toryfail
- Bromley deserves better: @labour4bromley would bring in the #londonlivingwage , support new & small businesses & work to bring new investment & quality jobs into our borough. #toryfail
- Bromley Labour would use the dormant £28m Growth Fund left idle by Bromley Tories to develop and deliver regeneration strategies for Cray Valley, Beckenham, Bromley, Orpington, Penge & Anerley. #toryfail
- Bromley residents deserve a website that is easy to use and offers the services and information residents need. @labour4bromley would commission a new website and put much more information into the public domain #toryfail
- Too many residents are made bankrupt or threatened by bailiffs when they can’t afford their council tax. #toryfail. Bromley Labour would review these processes and end the council’s use of bankruptcy proceedings & repossessions.
- Put Bromley first. Bromley Labour would sell out-of-borough council-owned properties such as McDonalds in Portsmouth & invest in Bromley properties that benefit residents as well as earning an income for the council.
- Our children & young people face huge challenges; some are suffering increasingly complex mental health issues. Bromley Labour would reverse the Tory cuts to mental health budgets and speed up waiting times for treatment.
- Too many developers get away with not delivering affordable homes; Bromley Labour would make developers publish viability assessments and deliver the affordable homes we need.
- Too many young people are drawn into gangs, violence and petty crime. Labour would reverse Tory cuts to youth services and work with police & other agencies to give our young people the best opportunities.
- Bromley Tory Council removed air quality monitoring equipment; Labour would reinstate and act to reduce air pollution.
- Bromley Tories gave a new contract for nursing care beds to Mission Care; CQC found 2 of their 5 nursing homes ‘require improvement’. Labour would review all contracts to ensure we get quality services.
- Too many tenants in private rented accommodation suffer from inadequate repairs and unscrupulous landlords. Bromley Labour would introduce a register of approved landlords & enforce the law on agency fees.
- Bromley Labour would strengthen the council’s enforcement teams to ensure that private landlords & housing associations keep their properties in good condition. Too many people in damp and cold homes.
- Not acceptable to wait until people are killed or injured; @labour4bromley would introduce 20MPH limits around schools and on residential roads.
- Providing for our young people doesn’t just mean £ for youth clubs: @labour4bromley would support community sporting & arts initiatives & work with @sayno2knives & police etc to combat anti-social behaviour & gang culture.
- Bromley Tories allow some developers to escape their social obligations. Bromley Labour would manage developers 106 contributions to ensure new developments also contribute funding for provision of health & education.
- Approx 200 of London Borough of Bromley employees earn below the London Living Wage. Some contracted staff only get 1% annual payrise. Bromley Labour would roll-out the #londonlivingwage for staff and contractors to boost local economy.
- Increasing numbers of children are being home educated. Bromley Labour supports Lord Soley’s bill to increase regulation and would ensure home educated children are supported in doing GCSEs as many are unable to.
- Too many Bromley contracts are not properly managed and monitored. Bromley Labour would carry out a full audit of all contracts to ensure residents are getting the services they are paying for.
- Currently Bromley makes very little use of service users in monitoring its contracts. Bromley Labour would set up user groups to keep an eye on how contractors are performing out in the community.
- Bromley Tories think young people in care are the same as their own children and don’t need more help with budgeting & paying bills. Bromley Labour would exempt care leavers from the council tax.
- A new stadium for Cray Valley Wanderers would provide a secure home for our football club & much needed community facilities and local regeneration. Bromley Labour has lobbied Sadiq Khan to give his approval for the new site.
- We must increase recycling rates. Bromley Labour would introduce recycling for business premises in the Borough.
- A new pledge from Bromley Labour every day!
