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.
Worcestershire Near Bankrupt
Tory Worcestershire’s Conservative council leader Simon Geraghty was too scared of public opinion to share a “damning independent finance review" showing Worcestershire county close to bankruptcy.
Redditch Council At Risk
FOUR of the shambolic Conservitive county councillors responsible for this mess are also running Redditch council, including leader of Redditch Conservatives Juliet Brunner. Putting our towns finances at risk from the same Tory incompetence that plagues our county council.

Redditch Conservatives have won 7 of the 10 wards being contested in the borough election and have taken control of Redditch council from Labour.

The Conservatives won from Labour, Abbey ward by 87 votes, Batchley & Brockhill ward by 32 votes and Church Hill ward by just one vote.

The conservatives also took Winyates from UKIP and retained the 3 wards they were defending.

It is a big blow for Labour to lose control of our council and a further blow to lose two hard working councillors who have served our town well, Natalie Brookes For Batchley And Brockhill and Nina Wood-Ford in Church Hill.

At this election, 6 of the 10 wards contested had sitting Labour councillors and a swing of a fraction of 1% of the vote share has resulted in Labour losing 3 wards and control of the council.

Next year it's the Conservatives turn to defend when 8 of the 10 wards up for re-election will have sitting Conservative councillors. We'll be back!

Redditch Labour council has a £12M council home building fund that it uses to build council homes like those currently being built in Dixon Close, Abbey. Our council is one of the few councils in the country that not only has held on to its housing stock but is expanding it. Making it one of the largest council retained housing stocks in the West Midlands.

The fund allows Redditch Labour Council to also run a 'mortgage rescue scheme' which enables the council to buy out properties that are in danger of repossession, not only adding a property to the councils housing stock but saving a family from homelessness. In addition, the council also have a 'buy-back scheme', purchasing existing property to turn into council homes. 

Tory cuts to housing investment have halved the number of new low-cost homes for first-time buyers and driven the number of new social rented homes being built to a record low leaving our young people at the mercy of buy-to-let landlords. So further to their own building program, Redditch council are in partnership with one of the largest Co-operative housing associations in the country making available decent housing at affordable rents for our townsfolk.

In the 3 months leading up to the 2018/19 budget, Conservative councillors repeatedly went against the wishes of the public consultation and attempted to privatise our Leisure services - 3 times.

On each occasion Labour won by a single 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 slimmest of margins. If the Tories take control of our town, everything will be lost.

Don't risk letting the Tories sell off our services - Vote Labour on May 3rd.

Labour stop Tory privatisation of leisure by 1 Vote!
