Norfolk Labour’s Manifesto for 2017 pledges:
• Strengthening and protecting our Adult Education Centres
• Ensuring that community assets are used for community good
• Promoting fairer pricing for museums so local families can aﬀord to visit them
• Countering environmental threats e.g. ﬂooding
• Fighting unsuitable developments e.g. opposing fracking in Norfolk
• Keeping all Fire Stations open with no reduction in Fireﬁghters
• Maintaining and enhancing community use of our ﬁrst-class comprehensive county-wide Library Service
• Street lighting – switching streetlights back on at night in urban areas where there is local demand
We love Norfolk because of the quality of its environment, the communities we live in and the diverse range of facilities that the county oﬀers. The Fire Service protects us; Libraries are at the heart of our communities; our Museums and Adult Learning Services keeps fresh our heritage and adaptability. Whilst embracing the future, Norfolk faces threats – some natural e.g. seasonal ﬂooding, others man-made e.g. as the result of global warming. We will oppose fracking and resist funding cuts which prevent mitigation and protection of our county, our coastline and our people.
Norfolk cannot manage all this alone so Labour will protect what we can – no reduction in our Fire Service, Libraries, Museums and Adult Education. We will ﬁght for the resources to protect our county and against schemes which will undermine the quality of Norfolk as “The Best Place to Live”.
