Sheffield Green Party Council Election Manifesto 2016

A vote for the Green Party is a vote for:

A COUNCIL THAT LISTENS

Listening to local people and helping them get their voices heard

Decisions made at local levels, with proper consultations – and answers to questions

Calling decision-makers to account to the people they serve; online broadcasting of council meetings

No regional mayor without a referendum

A HEALTHIER, CARING CITY

Better care, centred on people – an end to privatisation and zero hours contracts

Support for junior doctors and NHS workers

Real action on air quality and road safety

JOBS IN A LOCAL ECONOMY

Investing in new jobs in improved public transport, renewable energy and energy-saving measures for homes and businesses

Supporting local businesses making a living in the local economy; no more big private contracts

Promoting a living wage of £10 an hour by 2020; Support for low-income households

BETTER HOUSING AND STREETS

Investment in good-quality rented housing to reduce energy use and bills

Better enforcement of private housing in disrepair; tackling empty homes

Tackling night-time noise and anti-social behaviour

LOCAL TRANSPORT IN PUBLIC CONTROL

Better regulation of bus fares and routes; 20mph zones in residential areas

Investment in attractive routes for walking and cycling; reopening local rail stations

A VISION FOR A GREEN ENVIRONMENT

Improving air quality by considering it at every level of decision-making

Taking account of residents’ views on street trees

Working to keep fracking out of Sheffield and the Peak District – leaving fossil fuels in the ground
