MK ELECTIONS: Labour
Labour has controlled Milton Keynes Council for the past two years and pledge to continue making the city a great place to live, work and visit.
The party has spent much of its time battling against cuts, which they blame on the Conservative Government. Despite this, it says it has made a difference by starting the biggest council house building programme for a generation, introducing the Real Living Wage for all council staff and contractors and ensuring a “good” school place for every child.
Labour also signed the Ethical Care Charter to ensure good support for elderly and vulnerable people in MK, and has launched MK Futures 2050.Commission to allow everyone a say in how the city will grow and develop.
Leader Pete Marland has further promised residents a referendum before regeneration work starts on seven local estates. He said: “We face ongoing attacks by the Tory Government,,,MK Labour Party will meet these challenges with a positive set of ideas to improve our city and the services that MK council delivers.”
Labour also promise more houses, better transport, and continued resolve to make MK a European Destination City.
