Norwich Labour Party candidates are set to launch their manifesto for the 2022 Norwich City Council elections today.
The manifesto, entitled ‘Our Norwich, Fair for All – A Manifesto for the Many not the Few’ commits the council to building hundreds of new environmentally friendly council homes, tougher action to protect private renters, significant investment in the city and protecting and promoting the city’s precious environment to help better respond to the Climate Emergency. Action to tackle crime, rising anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping through new CCTV, alley-gates, and communal door entry systems to better protect communities is also a top priority.

Cllr Alan Waters, Labour Leader of Norwich City Council, says:
“Every election is a choice. Our city has felt the impact of 12 long years of Tory government where we’ve seen support for vital services shredded and the recent impact of the pandemic and cost of living crisis heap pressure upon city people.
In contrast, Norwich Labour has the vision and policies to build a better future for all, with a bold, hopeful, and achievable offer of positive change. This manifesto is about putting the people of our city first – fighting for jobs, sustainable growth, new council housing and taking every step possible to make Norwich a safer, cleaner, fairer place to live.
Our track record has been one of practical improvements and positive changes since taking control in 2012. At a time when the Tory government keeps hitting our city with ceaseless cuts upon the public services we value while sitting back as inequality rockets, a vote for Labour in Norwich is chance to support our fairer and positive alternative. The message is clear – we are on your side in Norwich”.
