2019 Manifesto

 

 

A Green Manifesto for Headingley & Hyde Park

All Green party policies, national, regional and local are all aligned with the core party values that help shape and define what the Green Party Stands for.

A licensing scheme for landlords.

Parts of our area are blighted by houses owned by landlords who simply don’t look after their properties.

This is bad for their tenants and for all local residents. We want landlords to be properly regulated. Licensing schemes are working in many parts of the country. Why not here?

 

More residents’ parking.

Our streets are clogged up by commuters from elsewhere. They park in Headingley and get the bus to the city centre. It’s so bad that buses can’t get along the road. The Green Party will introduce more permit parking for local residents.

 

Safer cycling.

We need to make the roads safe for bikes. We will work for the introduction of properly segregated cycle lanes from the ring road all the way to the city centre. This will benefit every-one by improving air quality and reducing traffic noise.

 

Get bins off the pavements.

Green councillors will work to clear wheelie bins off our pavements. They are a hazard for wheelchair users and people with child buggies and are unsightly.
