Cambridge Labour has launched its manifesto for the 2021 Cambridge City Council elections.
The manifesto, entitled One Cambridge, Fair For All, sets out Labour’s vision for tackling key issues in the city, as well as highlighting the achievements of the current Labour administration.
If re-elected to a majority on the City Council, Labour is promising to:
- Tackle poverty and inequality and promote food justice
- Achieve a net zero council by 2030 and address the climate and biodiversity emergencies
- Build 1000 council homes and reduce homelessness, continuing to offer accommodation to every rough sleeper
- Deliver essential services in the face of Tory government cuts, including supporting local charities and businesses
The City Council elections are being held on 6 May 2021. British, Irish, Commonwealth and EU citizens are eligible to vote. The deadline to register to vote is 19 April, and the deadline to register for a postal vote is 20 April.
In Newnham, our City Council candidates are local teacher and education campaigner Niamh Sweeney, Cameron Holloway, a recent graduate from Robinson College, now working in prison education, and final year Christ’s College student Hollie Wright.
