- Local communities to be proud of, with responsive local services
We fundamentally believe that the first point for a successful city is a successful local community. We believe if we help communities to help themselves we all end up winning. There are so many local groups who are really in touch what is needed locally; we need to support them to be able to do more, and where these don't yet exist, our tireless councillors and candidates will help to make our communities better.
- A city to be proud of, where all can prosper and feel welcome
We need a council that is focused on rebuilding our economy, attracting jobs, and providing the services we need. So many of the national issues are actually best addressed at a city level, whilst government set the boundaries, as a city the choices we make can create dramatically different outcomes. We believe we can flatten out the inequalities in our city in a way that helps it grow for everyone.
- Environmental policies we can all be proud of, not a series of expensive vanity projects
The Climate emergency is real, but so much of what is proposed looks good but doesn't make much difference and works against some of our communities' needs. We would take on the biggest sources of climate harm and systematically drive down Newcastle's Carbon Footprint in a way that works for everyone.
