Basingstoke Labour working for you
We work all year round, not just at election times. Our Councillors hold surgeries and knock on doors to find out what’s important to residents, and deal with casework on residents issues big and small.
There are some big challenges facing Basingstoke and Deane over the next 12 months as the real impact of Covid 19 and constant cutting of our Councils funding by the Conservative Government will start to hit home. In Basingstoke we have suffered from the collapse in retail and are ranked third highest in towns most vulnerable to retail collapse. Job losses which could be as high as 2500 in retail alone.
Our local conservative council has been asleep the wheel for many years failing to deliver on time on any projects – where is the promised Leisure park, or action to solve our housing crisis? Drastic cuts will be made to fill the black hole in the budget. Cuts are being planned to our buses, social care, education, and its been up to Labour Councillors to fight cuts and increased charges, including plans to charge disabled people for parking.
We will take on the challenges posed by the pandemic and ensuing recession, and we will win with a strategy that puts people at the heart of what we do.
Help us make Basingstoke a great place to live, join the Labour Party and vote Labour in our local elections.
