2017 County Council Manifesto

See the Cambridgeshire Labour Manifesto here

Cambridgeshire is one of the most unequal counties in the country. The area of Greater Cambridge is a major national and global economic driver. But, in the north of the county, especially Fenland, as well as areas of Cambridge, people suffer from high levels of deprivation and a chronic lack of investment. In the same county as the University of Cambridge and Silicon Fen are some of the worst performing schools in Britain. Differences in life expectancy between the north and south of the county remain shockingly large.

Fighting inequality is Labour’s number one priority on Cambridgeshire County Council. All Labour’s policies aim to make Cambridgeshire a fairer place to live for everyone, whether rural or urban, wealthy or poor. We will help local businesses create jobs and apprenticeships by pushing for essential transport and communications infrastructure and more efficient public services. We will support young people into work and training through both targeted and universal support services.
