Why vote Labour in Basildon, Billericay & Wickford?

We are against the Conservative congestion charge

At the start of 2018 the Conservative Government gave Basildon Council 'ministerial direction' that a congestion charge on the A127 may need to be introduced into order to reduce air pollution.

This Conservative Congestion Charge will be bad for residents, bad for business and bad for Basildon and something Labour will fight against.

We want a Basildon that works for everyone

Basildon is alive with opportunity and has all the ingredients to be one of the most successful and desirable places in the South East. For all that is good about our local economy, we know there is a hidden truth behind the stark economic facts.

We are also home to some of the most economically disadvantaged areas in the country. Something is holding us back from being a borough that really does create opportunity and improve lives for all our resident, wherever in the borough they live.

Basildon Labour are determined the council addresses this urgently. That’s why we are starting work to make our borough fairer and more equal.

We want to support key workers

Labour councillors have launched an ambitious plan to change the council's housing strategy to ensure teachers, nurses, police officers, firefighters and other public servants are given priority in the housing queue.

Basildon Labour wants to ensure we recognise the service of Basildon public sector workers and give them a chance to own a home.
