2019 Manifesto - A Fresh Start

Four themes

A manifesto reflecting our core principles and priorities:

  1. A greener West Berkshire
  2. Protecting the most vulnerable
  3. Investing in you and your family
  4. Supporting our communities

Key items

In four years we want you to hold us to account, especially on our key policy items:

  • Commit to delivering 1,500 affordable new homes over the next five years, with at least 150 being for social rent
  • Tackle climate change by working towards being carbon neutral by 2030 and by scrapping the Green Bin Charge
  • Invest in our towns by introducing free parking days and creating a MyWestBerkshire app promoting local offers and businesses
  • Having 20mph and idle-free zones outside schools to improve safety and air quality
  • Develop a new youth service in partnership with young people
  • Establish community forums so your voice is heard
