Nottingham is one of the most diverse, integrated and welcoming cities in the UK and one of the best places to live. Our city has lots to ofer young people, families and older people with beautiful parks, exciting events, awardwinning public transport, miles of car-free cycle tracks and the highest number of independent retail stores outside London.
We know that Nottingham’s young people have energy, entrepreneurialism and enthusiasm to give. That’s why we want to keep more young people in Nottingham and give their ideas the chance to flourish. Over the next 4 years we will help young people find their place in Nottingham by ensuring a choice of good quality housing, access to workspace and increased work opportunities.
We want to help families get on in life by providing a good range of leisure activities, free and cheap events and excellent public services, as well as creating a development plan for the new Central Library.
We also want to make life better for the 35,000 older persons’ in the city. That’s why we will protect older person’s discounts on valued services- services like our bus passes- helping older people get around and maintain their social lives. We want older people, where they need it, to have choice and confidence in the care they receive and the way it is delivered, maintaining dignity, independence and control.
In the next 4 years, we will bring low cost energy to all through the creation of our own not-for-profit energy company. In recent years, the cost of utility bills has spiralled as the profit-hungry ‘Big 6’ energy companies have exploited their monopoly of the energy market. Nottingham’s new gas and electricity company will provide energy to people across Nottingham and beyond at the lowest possible price- run not for profit but for people.
Over the next 4 years, we want to make Nottingham more people-friendly than ever. A city that enables healthy lifestyles, positive outcomes and happy lives- and encourages people to contribute to the wellbeing of their community.
