Imaginative, Sustainable Local Planning

by Anne


local planningSafe, attractive neighbourhoods and vibrant, inclusive communities are at the heart of local life. Local planning services work best when they are designed around communities, where people can identify their particular concerns and help to plan for improvements. We need imaginative community planning with the people that live in our area – for example, young people should be involved in creating the public spaces and services that they need. Let’s focus on what’s important to us – from our local environment, to cultural and social amenities, to supporting local businesses.

I Will Work For:

  • Neighbourhood improvement plans for each area that are developed in partnership with people living locally and successful local planning
  • Community facilities and cultural activities for every group – for children, young people, older people and families, women, people with disabilities
  • Age-friendly neighbourhoods (both young and old)
  • Access and mobility planning for wheelchair users and people with mobility problems
  • More allotments and community gardens
  • Play spaces close to families
  • Active strategies to encourage people to take care of our neighbourhood – to ensure that laws against dog fouling, littering, graffiti and vandalism are respected and effective
  • Flood planning for local areas
  • A programme of footpath upgrade and maintenance
