A Green manifesto for southgate ward

cover of green manifesto for southgate ward

We want to thank Southgate residents for the many good wishes we have been sent ahead of the council election on 5 May.

We are the Green Party's candidates in Southgate ward, where a Green councillor has represented the ward since May 2021. The Greens can win Southgate. We have been hard working hard all year round, stood up in the council on behalf of residents without being whipped by the party.

Many Southgate residents have said, that no matter who they normally vote for, they're voting Green this time. They know that Green councillors works hardest. They want to see more Greens continue to provide principled opposition and accountability continues on the council.

This manifesto is our work-plan for the next four years and our ideas for how the council should be run for a better Southgate. As a party we are always listening to you, and we will also take action when residents and campaigners ask for our help and when new issues arise.

How much we can do when we're elected depends on how many Green seats we can win. Your vote can really make the difference.

We pledge to you we will work for

  • A cleaner, greener and more welcoming place: fight for weekly refuse and recycling bin collections and protect free regular collections of bulky waste. More education to deter fly tipping, reduce waste generation and increase recycling levels. Increase numbers of street trees.
  • A safe place to live, work and visit: work with you and local police to make Southgate safer, preventing crime, and supporting our young people and community facilities.
  • Fairer and greener ways to travel: press for socially just, green transport solutions and fair practical measures to clean up our air sooner; more active travel infrastructure; push for solutions to reduce congestion at Southgate circus and through traffic in residential streets.
  • A healthier borough: Encourage more GP sessions to reduce appointment delays; promote the benefits of vaccination, screening and checkups; improve air quality.
  • Housing that meets the needs of local people: fight for more family homes that residents can genuinely afford, and won't sell out to property developers and overseas investors over new developments; protect our green belt.
  • A fairer and more open borough: help bring local citizens into the Civic Centre, and help residents take the lead on the plans and decisions that matter.
