Earlier this week our Cardiff Labour Manifesto was officially launched outside the Maelfa Centre in Llanedeyrn. It really is a bold plan for a stronger, fairer and greener capital city – including new train stations, £1 bus fares and plans for 1,500 new council homes.
Key Pledges for Cardiff
- Build 1,500 new Council homes, as the next phase of our award-winning Council House building programme, and supporting Housing Associations to build more housing too, so that everyone has access to good quality, affordable housing.
- Continue our 21st Century Schools building Programme, providing brand new, community-focused schools across the city, whilst maintain the high standards we have achieved in classrooms, so that every pupil in Cardiff gets a good education.
- Help with the Cost of Living crisis, and prioritise the care of the vulnerable – as we did during Covid lockdowns – including older people, children who are looked after, and people living with disabilities, shielding Cardiff citizens from the impact of poverty, so that they’re supported to live rewarding, fulfilling lives, where their needs are met in full.
- Progress our vision to be a Carbon Neutral City by 2030, through projects like Coed Caerdydd, a new District Heating Network, further renewable energy projects, more safe active travel routes, and a focus on increasing recycling and keeping our streets clean.
- Drive Cardiff’s post-pandemic recovery, protecting and creating jobs by delivering a series of economic and cultural major projects, matched with continued investment in Cardiff Bus and the South Wales Metro to create a comprehensive public transport network.
