5 reasons you should vote Labour in the Prestwich Local Election
Before you head to the polling stations for the local elections this May, we wanted to highlight just a few of the things we’ve achieved in recent years.
With your help, we aim to create a lively high street, full of independent retailers, that adds to the vitality of the town.
In a period that’s seen budgets for northern councils squeezed tighter than ever, we’ve managed to help secure a £2 million funding package for improvements to Prestwich Village High Street.
At a time when getting affordable housing is so difficult for people we’ve supported Six Town Housing’s £2.5 million investment in improving the housing stock in the Prestwich area.
We’ve also succeeded in getting the two derelict houses on Heys Road demolished, following a gruelling three-year battle. As well as being a blight on the landscape for the past 17 years, the properties were the scene of several instances of anti-social behaviour, including an arson attempt.
While we’ve welcomed the benefits brought by the Parklife events over the last four years, we’ve also not been afraid to stand up to the organisers and ensure those living nearby aren’t adversely affected.
Prestwich Labour have played a key role in representing the views of local residents who were affected by these mega concerts and have played a key role in bringing about improvements to minimise any negative impact on the area.
We hope you’ll be voting Labour this May, but if you’ve got any questions or concerns, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch via Facebook or Twitter – or contact your local councillors directly here.
