Labour Fighting For The Alex


Labour Government Will Reverse NHS Cuts
Labour will reverse the downgrading of services at the Alex. We will invest an extra £7.4 billion annually into the NHS. More nurses. More doctors. Restoring the services this Government has stolen away from the people of Redditch.
Our NHS
Only Labour is comnmited to halting Tory hospital closures. The NHS is in our blood. We are determined to improve patient services in Redditch and returned the Alex to full health.
The Fight Continues
“It’s not good enough and we’re seeking firm commitments from the trust... As winter sets in the difficulties people in Redditch face to get to Worcestershire Royal will only get worse.”
-REDDITCH COUNCIL LEADER BILL HARTNETT


The Tories Have Lost Their Mandate


Jobs For Working People
Labour will create an economy that puts working people first. Introducing a real Living Wage of £10 per hour by 2020.
Rescue the NHS
Labour will halt Tory hospital closures and invest an extra £7.4 billion annually into improving patient services
Affordable Housing
Over the term of the parliment Labour will build a million new homes, including 100,000 per year of affordable homes to buy and to rent.


No Confidence In County Council


Tory County Council In Turmoil
The Labour group have called a 'vote of no confidence' on Conservative run Worcestershire county council and asked for Government intervention to turn around a tory administration in “total turmoil”.
£60m Cuts Planned
Redditch Labour county councillors, Andrew Fry, Pattie Hill and Robin Lunn say Tory incompetence, fiscal ineptitude and cuts in services, with £60m additional cuts yet to come, has put the county council in a perilous position.
Failing Childrens Services
DofE Commissioner for Children's Services in Worcestershire spoke of "widespread, systemic failings" in children's services. Failing the most Vunerable.

In the last 3 months, Conservative councillors have repeatedly gone against the wishes of the public consultation and attempted to privatise our Leisure services - 3 times.

On each occasion Labour won by 1 vote.

That's not just the Abbey stadium but Forge Mill, the Palace Theatre, Arrow Valley park, Morton Stanley park, children's play areas, and a whole bunch of other amenities.

Labour has a majority on Redditch borough council of Just ONE!

We kept the services 'not for profit' & for the people by the slimest of margins. If the Tories take control of our town, everything will be lost. Don't risk letting the Tories in

Redditch Labour council have unveiled their exciting vision to transform the heart of our town and create a thriving, vibrant public space. A centre that's fit for the 21st century, that sensitively integrates the new with the old, highlighting our listed buildings, showcasing our heritage.

This multimillion pound regeneration scheme has been 2 years in the planning and once the council's presentation is finalised the proposal will go out to public consultation allowing you to play your part in creating a town that we all can be proud of.

21st CENTURY REDDITCH

Redditch council have revealed their vision for a vibrant 21st-century town centre. One that promotes a modern 'urban living' lifestyle.

The proposal will transform the main arrival point in Redditch by integrating bus and train services with the shopping centre and providing conference facilities along with retail and housing. First impressions are important and our visitors will be left in no doubt they have arrived in a 21st-century town.

At the heart of the town centre regeneration is a public space, a piazza with water fountains, cafes & restaurants, a food hall & artisan market offering quality local produce. Where food, music & the arts are celebrated in festivals promoting local culture & talent.

Our town centre will be a 'day & night' public space offering bars & night spots with a lively social scene. A place for friends to meet, chat and socialise. Putting the town at the centre of our social lives. Not only for our townsfolk but drawing people in from the outlying village's. Making Redditch more relevant to our lifestyles.

Converting the town hall & police station into apartments is what powers the new urban vision, transforming a dead part of town into a thriving, vibrant area with much needed affordable homes to help our young people onto the housing ladder, while the involvement of the Housing Associations will ensure our people benefit from decent housing at affordable rents. Meanwhile, the town hall will move just the few yards across Church Green to Smallwood hospital, taking the library and job centre with it.

This multi-million pound regeneration has been 2 years in the planning and is the best thing to happen in Redditch for 40 years. Our local entrepreneurs are ideally placed to take advantage of the possibilities a project on this scale offers, our own small businesses and start-ups first in line exploit the opportunities. With increased footfall comes interest from investors, attracting businesses, luring amenities and entertainment to the heart of our town.

This is an ambitious plan, a positive plan, a vision for Redditch's future. A vision that will transform Redditch into the town we all want it to be.
