Westminster Labour’s plan for the first 100 days of a Labour Council

Labour have set out an ambitious but deliverable manifesto that can help positively transform Westminster for the future to make it a city for the many not the few.  

So, if elected on May 3rd we will take urgent action to deliver on our manifesto objectives upon taking office on May 16th. In our first 100 days in office a Labour Westminster Council will:

Urgently reform the planning system 

Deliver housing for local people 

Make a start reforming the finances 

  • Labour will urgently begin a ‘zero based’ budget review of the Council’s finances. We will introduce rigorous checks on temporary and agency working hiring, scrap payments to Deputy Cabinet Members, get rid of the Westminster Reporter and streamline the Lord Mayor’s office to cut out unnecessary ‘frills’. 
  • We will do this so that despite Conservative Government austerity we can redirect funding to our identified key priorities while meeting our commitment to keep Council Tax low, not raising it any more than the Tories have.

 Investing in Young People and the vulnerable  

 London Living Wage 

 More support for our EU national residents 

 Protecting small business 

Cleaner streets
