Our Portsmouth Plan
Our Portsmouth Plan

Our strong community spirit, our waterfront location and green spaces, our dedicated public service staff, our dynamic small businesses and rich cultural assets, make Portsmouth a city to be proud of.

For too long the council has been run by the Lib Dems and Tories who with central government have let local people down, neglected our communities and forgotten our city. Over ten years of underinvestment, cutting of budgets has put Portsmouth second.

Our city’s schools are set to lose £3.7m affecting 50 local schools; homelessness has doubled whilst thousands are waiting for a home to call their own; we’ve lost 1,007 police officers whilst crime is up in our city 10%; social care and health services are in crisis whilst a third of Portsmouth children live in poverty.

Yet it doesn’t have to be this way. 

With ten years of cuts Portsmouth Labour is standing up for the services we all rely on and lobbying government for fairer funding for our city.With strong local leadership and an ambitious plan for Portsmouth, we can rebuild our communities, protecting our public services we all rely on and creating a city which works for everyone.

This is our Portsmouth Plan. This is our plan for the many, not the few.

From Somerstown to Southsea, Fratton to Farlington, Paulsgrove to Portsea, all across our great city we want to rebuild our forgotten communities and neglected neighbourhoods by:
1. Keeping the Portsmouth pound in the city by investing in the local economy and high streets, creating jobs and supporting cooperative and worker-owned businesses
2. Lobbying government to stop cuts to public services and for fairer funding for the city to invest in schools, social care and keeping our communities safe
3. Addressing serious traffic congestion, with better integrated transport and parking problems tackled with a city-wide plan that works for the whole city
4. Solving the housing crisis in the city by building more homes for local people, ending homelessness, and working with landlords to improve the quality of homes
5. Delivering a city which is net zero carbon by 2030 and protecting our planet with a greener, cleaner city
6. Introducing council elections every four years to save money, improve local leadership and finding better ways to involve people and communities in the decisions which affect them
