The Green Party has local, citywide, national and European policies.As a member I can shape these and as a democratic and participatory party I am not told what to say or told how to vote: I can act according to the need of this area I seek to represent and according to my conscience. I got involved as I support the Green Party having policies that connect these interlinked themes:
- ecological sustainability
- social justice and greater equality
- local democracy and greater participation in the decisions that affect us.
Mayoral Election, 2016
In 2016 we are focussing mainly on citywide policies we’d like to see implemented by a Green Mayor. Here’s a link to the ten headline priorities for our Candidate Tony Dyer standing to be Mayor of Bristol:
Locally, our Green priorities for Redland include:
- continued support for our local traders and high streets;
- encouraging safer streets for all through traffic calming, safety schemes, and highway improvements (via the Sustainable Travel Working Group for the neighbourhood);
- pressing for ALL local views on the Mayor’s Residents’ Parking Scheme to be taken into account – at the street-by-street level so any new proposals are shaped to work for residents ands traders;
- acting quickly to deal with litter and waste issues;
- keeping people informed of progress with the Bristol North Baths redevelopment.
Our Green policies for the city:
- Integrated, affordable, reliable public transport system
- Making our homes warmer and fit for the future with home insulation initiatives, and investment in renewable energy
- Reduce waste and consumption; by helping people reuse and repair more
- Secure, affordable housing for all tenants and buyers
- A strong local economy, successful high streets; more ways for local businesses to win council contracts
- High quality local state school place available for every child
- Making Neighbourhood Partnerships more representative of communities and able to manage more local services and facilities
- Decision making for local people by local people
- Partnership working and collaboration to benefit the local economy, community, and environment.
- Making the most of Bristol being European Green Capital 2015 by getting lasting, positive change for the whole city
