Green action

Green Councillors have worked to stop litter and fly-tipping and deal with anti-social behaviour. We have challenged the policy of selling public services without public scrutiny.

We opposed plans for a new elected mayor, rejected in a 2012 referendum.

In the council budget we proposed to:

  • Cut the price of residents’ parking permits
  • Cut executive pay in the Council
  • Invest £6.5 million in cutting fuel bills for homes and schools

We also found extra money to:

  • Cut air pollution from taxis
  • Improve road safety and public transport
  • Save vital care for the elderly and disabled All were rejected by the ruling Labour group.

All were rejected by the ruling Labour group.
