Our community has fought its way through coronavirus and a decade of austerity and is now having to battle inflation and a cost-of-living crisis.
Labour councils around the UK have pioneered an approach to the local economy which has not only protected local assets, but has also helped the community thrive, and led to higher wages and better job security.
Labour want to bring this to Kingston.
Community Wealth Building is when councils work to keep money within the area, by prioritising local organisations and businesses to deliver the services we need. This means that the choices they make as a council boost the local economy and keep money circulating within the area. This benefits community groups and small business.
We are the only party offering this bold vision for our community. The Lib Dem – Tory council would only outsource more profit and power to big business, developers and cheap suppliers, placing no weight on social value, and local investment.
We want everyone to flourish, and benefit from a vibrant and stable local economy.
