Vote Green on May 5th – Medway Greens’ Core Policy List

Trish Marchant says: In case you missed and are still making you mind up on who to vote for today have a read of our local election six point core policy list to illustrate what we believe are achievable priorities.

We think its time that residents, faced with the unsustainable, short term and failed policies of the three main parties in Medway, should get a chance to vote for a party that cares for them and their planet.

We have 14 Green candidates across 12 wards providing a real alternative to vote for on the 5th of May.

The six points are:

  • Create a programme to insulate every home in Medway and install renewable energy technologies.
    • This will help cut fuel poverty and energy bills, make homes healthier and reduce carbon emissions.
  • Champion better public transport plus a better deal for walkers and cyclists and oppose car dependency but not cars.
    • This will help cut deaths and injuries, improve health and reduce carbon emissions.
  • Protect and enhance green spaces, allotments and biodiversity.
    • This will help improve air quality, reduce the health inequalities related to income and social deprivation and allow greater enjoyment of such places.
  • Oppose academies and the privatisation of school and education services.
    • This will help ensure higher standards and that control of schools is not removed from parents, teachers and the wider community.
  • Promote responsible pet ownership and work to ensure the exclusive use of non-animal tested products in the council’s cleaning and office products.
    • This will help reduce the burden on animal sanctuaries and foster respect and value for animals.
  • Support truly sustainable regeneration, help increase the number of small businesses and oppose an increase in big businesses.
    • This will help create more long term jobs and increase the amount of money kept in the local community.
