On Saturday afternoon, Labour Members, Registered Supporters, friends, family and interested voters from across the city met at Devonport Guildhall for the first Open Manifesto meeting to discuss what policies Labour should have in our 2014 City Council Elections manifesto.
In 2012 Labour took over control of Plymouth City Council from the Conservatives. We were elected on a 100 pledge manifesto that you can read here. A year and a half on from those elections and the City Council has delivered over 80% of that manifesto. You told us, we listened, we promised and we have delivered.
That means we now need a new manifesto - a new set of policies to help make life in Plymouth better, fairer, more equal and prosperous than before. We know that because of Tory cuts the City Council will have less money to provide essential services and will face further cuts from the Tories in the future. That's why we need to find new, innovative ways of delivering good quality local services.
On Saturday we invited people to share their ideas with us about improving Plymouth. We had over 60 people contribute their ideas, share their concerns and hear what has been achieved already by Labour in Plymouth.
