Helping the Homeless in Nottingham

The Tory-driven cost of living crisis is still ravaging the UK. Inflation is still high, wages still low and the cost of necessities like food and energy keep rising. The single cost that is rising the most for the average person though, is rent and mortgages. In August 2023 rent prices increased 12%. If you exclude London where rent costs have totally spiralled out of control, the average renter spends 24% of their weekly income on rent alone. This is far more than homeowners spend on their mortgages. That does not mean that homeowners aren’t also having to pay more on their mortgages due to increasing inflation and high mortgage rates. In Nottingham more residents rent than own their own property, meaning that skyrocketing rents affect more people.

Nottingham castle reopens for all

Nottingham Labour is very pleased that the castle has re-opened today Monday 26th June. On Exec Board meeting we announced that the re-opening of the castle would take place in June and we are delivering on our promise.
We have announced a new general admission price of £12 per adult, allowing people to return as many times as they like for a year, along with free entry for up to three accompanied kids aged 15 and under. This is in response to the rising cost of living, which is a serious problem for many of our communities, and will ensure that all families in Nottingham can once again access the castle.

The new Executive

Nottingham Labour confirmed today (22 May) at Full Council the political and civic leadership of the city, after securing an increased majority at the local elections. A total of 51 out of 55 councillors at Nottingham City Council, are now Labour. This gives us a strong mandate to implement the manifesto over the next four years and continue to fight for and improve the lives of Nottingham residents.

Nottingham Labour Manifesto Launch

Nottingham Labour can announce that on Friday 14th 1pm to 3pm Room S11, Antenna, 9A Beck Street, Nottingham NG1 1EQ we will be launching our manifesto for 2023-27,

Over the past four-year term we are proud of the achievements we have made despite local and national difficulties, that have affected so many councils across the country.
