Our manifesto: Scarborough and Whitby Labour Party, a fresh start for a better future

The Tories have run Scarborough Borough Council into the ground. They are complacent, incompetent and out-of-touch. They have presided over:

  • streets getting dirtier
  • fewer bin collections
  • public toilets disappearing
  • rising car park charges
  • less and less affordable housing
  • failed regeneration plans and projects
  • mismanagement of council finances

We need a fresh start. We need a stronger vision for the future. Only Labour can repair the damage the Conservatives have done to our borough.

Labour offers:

  • More affordable housing
  • More community-led action to support vital local services
  • A plan to keep our streets, parks and beaches clean
  • Fairer council tax and action to boost our local economy and support our high streets
  • Responsible and accountable decision-making
