Reading Labour party manifesto 2014

The manifesto includes pledges to:

  • keep Reading clean – with continuing deep cleans across the town and regular street sweeping.
  • promote sustainable transport – with more investment in our award winning bus service and measures to make cycling easier
  • pursue all ways to provide more housing – new council housing and work with the private rented sector
  • invest in more primary and secondary schools – in all areas of Reading, including Caversham and east Reading.
  • extend 20mph zones – extending areas in consultation with local residents
  • build extra care housing and nursing projects – offering more options for older people
  • continue to regenerate central Reading, including pressing for an early start on Station Hill and redevelop the old Civic Offices site
  • seek ways to improve local shopping centres
  • press for action on the much-needed third Thames Bridge
  • continue to support and work in partnership with Reading’s much-valued voluntary sector
