WHAT THE GREEN PARTY HAS DONE IN THIS AREA
Jillian, Rob and other Green volunteers knock on doors year round, help people with problems, and work with local people and community groups. We deliver a quarterly newsletter, so people know what we are doing.
Jillian & Rob have taken up a large number of issues recently on behalf of people in the ward. Examples include: night-time noise & nuisance; damaging planning & licensing issues; antisocial behaviour; housing; transport & parking; and waste & recycling. Specific examples can be found in our newsletters – see below.
WHAT THE GREEN PARTY STANDS FOR
Our stance on key issues is summarised in Jillian’s election newsletters and election address – see below. Our policies on jobs, cuts, education (including student tuition fees), housing, transport & road safety and local communities are summarised below. There are many clear differences between us and the Labour and Lib Dem parties.
– Unlike Labour and the Lib Dems, we do not agree with student loans or a graduate tax. We want free education for all, including EMA and ESOL (English as a Second Language), paid for out of general taxation.

Secure housing – We want long-term, secure tenancies. We would bring Sheffield Homes back into the council and force better standards in private rented houses. We would spend more on repairs, green energy and energy saving for all homes.
Safer streets – Too much traffic means congestion, pollution and accidents. We want money spent where road safety is worst, a city-wide 20mph limit on residential roads, and higher priority for pedestrian and cycle routes (including winter gritting).
Strong communities – Good local facilities and support for volunteers, not cuts to public services, are the only way to build communities and cut crime. We support local schools, groups and campaigns. We consult local people and help them get their voice heard.
