Local Elections 2010 : The Conservative Manifesto
'Delivering the Change' - for Ealing
Ealing Conservatives today launched the manifesto for the local Ealing Council elections.
The manifesto builds on four years of action from the Conservative administration, which has delivered cleaner streets, safer communities, and a general improvement in resident satisfaction, all at value for the Council Taxpayer. The 2010 manifesto promises to:
• deliver further improvements to the local environment, such as Saturday street cleaning and increasing the recycling rate
Cllr Jason Stacey, Conservative Group Leader and Leader of the Council, said:
“In 2006, residents of Ealing elected Conservatives to run Ealing Council. After twelve years of Labour misrule, residents told us they wanted the Borough to be cleaner and safer, with an end to high year on year Council tax increases.
“Our streets are now at 95% ‘grade A’ standard compared with 57% in 2006, and we have delivered record investment in measures such as alleygating, CCTV and police community support officers to help bring down the overall level of crime. With two years of below inflation Council Tax increases, two years of Council tax freezes and last year’s £50 cashback, we have brought relief to struggling households after Labour’s record of appallingly high year on year tax rises.
“Yet there is still much to be done. We want to further improve the services we deliver to the public on the environment, crime, and supporting the vulnerable. We also want to deliver our programme of regeneration of town centres and housing estates, and bring more opportunities for young people.
“It is a challenging programme, especially in these tough economic times. But as an administration we have proved we can deliver quality public services at value for the Council Taxpayer. I ask all residents to support Conservative candidates to help us continue delivering this change to Ealing.”
