Labour councils deliver more for less: households living under a Labour council pay less council tax than those living in Conservative areas, but deliver better services and invest in key priorities:
People living in Labour council areas pay around £343 less council tax than those living under Conservative councils, despite being hit by deeper government cuts.
Labour councils invest more than Conservative councils on street cleaning and street lighting, and CCTV and crime reduction, because they know you want to feel proud of your street and safe in your home.
Because they want our country to be the best place to grow up in Labour councils invest more in Sure Start children’s centres and in protecting vulnerable children. And when the government refused to feed hungry children in school holidays last year, Labour councils stepped in.
Labour councils prioritise care for older people and fair wages for those that care for them. And we deliver more new affordable housing: last year the average Labour council started building twice as many new affordable homes as councils run by other parties.
