Welcome to Cheltenham Labour Party

Chelt-Labour-Banner.jpg

The Labour Party in Cheltenham was founded in 1918 by the Cheltenham and District Trade and Labour Council with the purpose of electing onto the Town Council direct representatives of Labour.

A purpose we still pursue to this day nearly 100 years since the Labour Party first established itself in the town.

The values Labour stands for in Cheltenham today remain those which have guided our local party since those early days.

 

We believe in and we campaign for:

  • A first-class National Health Service free at the point of use

  • A decent, safe and secure society with a strong sense of community and social justice

  • The protection of public services and support for the most vulnerable

  • A strong and stable economy based on investment, growth and high quality jobs

  • The right to work, to free choice of employment, to protection against unemployment and paid at a living wage

  • The provision of readily available, decent, secure homes to rent and buy at affordable prices

  • An education system that delivers quality and equality for all to allow all the children and young people of our community to achieve their full potential

This week, ahead of the forthcoming County Council Elections on 4th May Labour County Councillors launched Labour's vision for Gloucestershire.

Labour in Gloucestershire is promising to deliver truly public services based on the need for a cooperative, compassionate and efficient county council.

Working together for equality and opportunity across our county

Labour's five key policies in the campaign running up to the County Council elections on 4th May are:

  • To bring back control of Gloucestershire’s roads from its Highways contractor AMEY.
     
  • To create a countywide transport body that will be made up of elected members, officers and residents.
     
  • To re-invest in Early Years Intervention programmes such as children centres.
     
  • To work with all public bodies to continue to build truly affordable homes on Council owned brownfield land.
     
  • To create a County Council cooperative care company to deliver outstanding care to every resident, not just a few.
