A fresh start for Greenwich - Our manifesto for the Royal Borough

Greenwich Conservatives have presented our manifesto for the 2014 local elections, which take place next week.  "A fresh start for Greenwich" sets out the priorities of a Conservative administration, and our plan of action for making a positive difference for residents.

The main priorities outlined in the manifesto include:

·       Quality education and more choice for parents

·       Improved local healthcare

·       Lower parking costs

·       Real support for small businesses

·       A better deal on housing

·       An end to Labour’s waste

·       A fairer deal for the whole Borough

In his foreword to the document, Greenwich Conservatives' Leader, Councillor Spencer Drury, writes:

'Our Councillors and candidates have a strong record of standing up for local people and taking positive action to improve our local communities.  We have worked hard to give a voice to those who find themselves ignored by the Council, and to offer an alternative to the current administration. 

'A fresh approach is badly needed.  Labour have run Greenwich Council for over forty years, and have become increasingly arrogant and out of touch.  Their priorities are wrong, and residents in the borough are suffering as a result.  It really is time for a change.

'These local elections are a vital opportunity for residents of the Royal Borough to have their say on how the Council is run.  The choice is very clear: More of the same failed Labour approach, or a fresh start with the Conservatives.'
