Labour is gearing up for the Scarborough Borough Council elections on 2 May 2019. Constituents in every ward will have the opportunity to vote Labour.

Labour has some great candidates, with all kinds of life experience. What they have in common is their Labour values ā€“ all are rooted in their communities and determined to stand up for the people of Scarborough, Whitby, and the rural areas.

We pledge to press for transparency in the way the council conducts itself, and bring the Tories to account for the way they are failing us in the borough. To achieve this, we need to increase the number of Labour councillors and give local people a real voice in local affairs.

If you would like Labour to succeed, here’s how to get involved.

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
