Trafford Labour Manifesto, 2022
Trafford Labour Manifesto, 2022

Trafford Labour is proud to present its local election manifesto that explains how the party is on your side in Trafford.

Trafford Council Leader, Cllr Andrew Western, said: “The past two years have been extremely challenging for local government as they have for all public services.

I am incredibly proud of the way that we have all worked in partnership – residents, businesses and public services – to support each other and get through the pandemic.

Trafford Labour has done this by working together; and I know that whatever challenges we may face in the future we will face them as a united borough with an even stronger sense of community.

However, we must face up to the fact that the ongoing impact of the pandemic, alongside the sustained austerity that so restricts us, has left our financial position more constrained than ever.

This year has brought further challenges with the cost of living crisis stretching the Council and local residents during an already difficult time.

Therefore, Trafford Labour remains ambitious for our area.

We have refocused the Council’s priorities onto three key areas: reducing health inequalities, supporting people out of poverty and tacking the climate emergency.

These priorities will guide our work over the next 12 months and beyond.

This Manifesto sets out Trafford Labour’s key pledges for 2022/23.

It is a 12 month programme, so is necessarily less extensive than previous documents. This is because the local elections in May, 2023, will be contested on new electoral boundaries, with all 63 council seats up for grabs.

Despite this it contains a number of clear priorities that build on our work since taking control of the Council in 2018.

Trafford Labour has a strong record of delivering for our communities and will do so again over the weeks and months ahead.

Thanks you for your continued support.
