North Norfolk Labour Party will stand a full slate of 48 district council candidates at next month’s election on May 7. The team of candidates will ensure everyone in the constituency is able to vote Labour in the elections, in addition to the Parliamentary candidate Denise Burke.
Labour is the only party in North Norfolk to put up a full slate – with some other parties putting as few as 15 candidates up for 48 seats.
The party has pledged to build more affordable and efficient homes for local people. They will push for creation of local jobs that pay a living wage, and they will protect our local environment by investing in better coastal defences and fighting against fracking. The party will also help local families with the cost of living, and offer fairness, by ending the second homes council tax discount. Most importantly it pledges to listen to residents and involve them in any decisions made on a variety of subjects including markets, car parking, and local facilities.
Denise Burke, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for North Norfolk, said: “Labour has a plan for North Norfolk District Council, and it can win here. Labour’s support has been growing across North Norfolk since 2011 when we increased our vote by 15.72% and came second in a dozen seats. In the 2013 county council elections we almost won a number of seats, just falling short by a handful of votes.
In 2015 Labour can win locally and nationally. The choice is between a Labour government and a Conservative government. Vote Labour for change locally and nationally.”
