Our Pledges

Our Manifesto

Build a Better Plymouth — Our Pledges To You


We’ll create an exciting new programme, focussing on repairing potholes, missing yellow lines, broken pavements, tackling litter and plastics, graffiti, clearing drains and mending road signs.

Keeping us
safe and sound

We want our city to be a place where we are welcoming and kind but intolerant of crime. We will campaign for more police for our city, more CCTV, and comprehensive plans to tackle violence against women and girls and anti-social behaviour


Bringing down the waiting list for housing, a detailed plan to support renters, bringing empty homes back into use, kick-starting new house building and tackling homelessness

Protecting our
green and blue city

Tackling climate change is a priority and we’ll protect green spaces and look after trees. Sea level rise and flood prevention are particular challenges for coastal communities like ours

More things to do
in local areas

Lots of new facilities have been created but most of them have been in the city centre. We need to see a fairer distribution around the city – for example a large adventure playground for the north and opening our libraries for longer

Wind blown canvass with the lovely Ian Tuffin. Concerning conversation about an eviction, chat about bins left on pavements and possible solutions. From here I went to the opening of the new Shekinah hub in Stonehouse. This will make a difference to many people's lives. Earlier I'd been down to Firestone Bay and Devils Point looking at car parking and issues on the waterline. Spoke to a council parking enforcement officer and senior grass cutting officer. ...

After a long day, it was good to get out and about in both ends of Stoke with Councillor Sally Cresswell.

We went to an event in the newly renovated Community Centre at Stonehouse Creek. Our Plymouth Labour council has been working with local homelessness charity Shekinah so that this site can offer a wide range of services, including skills training, employment services, housing advice, and mental health support.

We then went to chat with St Levan Park NHWatch at the Ford Inn. It was good to meet the new pub landlord, update the group on the St Levan basketball hoop which is about to be replaced, discuss the ongoing Building Resilience in Communities - BRIC projects and note down some local casework which has already been reported.

We need to step away from fossil fuels and towards renewable sources of energy.

Nationally, the Labour Party is ready to turn the UK into a clean energy superpower by switching on publicly owned GB Energy. It‘s mission will be cutting household bills, creating good jobs and providing energy security whilst powering us towards net zero.

Our Plymouth Labour Council has already been delivering on cleaner energy locally. We’ve been finishing a £6.9M programme of renewable energy installations on 12 major public buildings which will save 660t of carbon. We recently built a solar array on the Theatre Royal car park and added solar canopies to the new Armada Way designs - showcasing renewables right in the city centre.

If re-elected in May, Plymouth Labour is committed to collaborating with Plymouth Energy Community to create one of the largest community owned solar farms in the UK. Based on a low lying section of the old landfill site at Chelson Meadow, this project will be a giant leap forwards for clean energy in Plymouth.
