Green, safe and vibrant communities
Green, safe and vibrant communities

We need green, safe, vibrant communities in every part of our city and we want residents to have a greater say in how our city is run.

Protecting the planet

  • Organise a citizens’ assembly on climate change. 
  • Tackle the climate crisis and achieve net zero carbon by 2030.
  • All developments in the new local plan to have on-site renewable energy production.
  • Create a Tipner regeneration project that protects the environment, increases social  housing and connects to the city.
  • Oppose the Aquind proposals and fight them all the way.
  • Reinvest £136.1m of fossil fuel investments, held by Hampshire Pension Fund on behalf of councils, in local green industries. 

Cohesive, safe and tidy neighbourhoods  (Safe, tidy neighbourhoods working together)

  • Encourage more neighbourhood forums, residents groups and living streets initiatives. 
  • Landlord licensing for HMOs, (Houses in Multiple Occupation), and private rented accommodation across the city.
  • Street cleaning and road maintenance provision across the city to ensure that no area is left behind.   
  • Provide activities young people enjoy to lead them away from anti-social behaviour. 
  • Reinstate a hate crime unit where all Portsmouth residents can get support if they’ve been victims of prejudice.

Developing local democracy (Giving People a Say)

  • Support the community-led housing sector to develop affordable housing through housing co-ops, co-housing projects etc. 
  • Ensure public engagement on design of major housing and regeneration sites. 
  • Involve the public in decision making and participatory budgeting. 
  • Move to all out local elections once every 4 years. 

Connecting our city

  • Develop an integrated transport system that’s affordable, efficient and accessible for all. 
  • Adopt ‘City to Share’ vision so cyclists and pedestrians in Portsmouth can be safe.
  • Develop low traffic neighbourhoods and living streets so residents can decide on spaces available for play, planting and community activities.
