Our pledges

Hackney Labour's Manifesto 2014: for the Mayoral and local elections on 22nd May

OUR PLEDGES:

A great place to succeed...

By building a thriving local economy that creates employment opportunities for local people, with training and support for job seekers; creating affordable work space, apprenticeships and continuing to promote Hackney businesses both locally and to a global audience.

A great place to enjoy...

By maintaining our award-winning parks, libraries and leisure centres;securing ethical social care provided by staff on a living wage; reducing health inequalities across our communities; and continuing the past 11 years reduction in crime and anti-social behaviour.

A great place to grow up...

By working with secondary schools to ensure that they secure five good GCSEs, including English and Maths, for at least 70% of pupils by 2018; and that all of our schools are assessed as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’; and delivering popular, effective youth services and outstanding social care that keeps children safe and supports families.

A great place to live...

By keeping Hackney clean, with streets that are great for cyclists and pedestrians; taking a sustainable approach to building, planning and the environment; and continuing our campaign against the rash of bookies and payday lenders in our town centres.

A great place to call home...

By delivering one of the UK’s largest affordable housing programmes, including more than 600 Council-built homes for social rent and shared ownership; raising housing standards by completing investment in all Hackney Homes stock, and developing a Council-backed lettings agency and licensing scheme for the private rented sector.
