Our original manifesto page can be found here.
** The Borough Council election of 2nd May 2019 resulted in 15 Conservative candidates being elected, alongside 19 Independents, 14 Labour and 1 Putting Cumbria First candidate.
As of the 22nd May 2019, the Council is led by Independents and Conservatives under a power-sharing arrangement.
While not being in a position to implement our manifesto under a Conservative administration is unfortunate, we will be working hard to implement it where possible under the current arrangement **
Our wider plan for Allerdale goes above and beyond our 6-point plan.
In addition to freezing council tax, providing a cleaner, greener allerdale, making our communities safer, protecting your weekly bin collection, supporting our town centres and stopping wasteful spending on vanity projects, Allerdale Conservatives have a number of other priorities for our first term in office:
Delivering a mix of new affordable and social housing across the borough.
Our vision for Allerdale's economic growth, a vision which seeks to carve out a unique role for the borough
Ensuring that locals are heard and that the planning system is to provide the infrastructure required to make new developments sustainable.
Supporting new initiatives to combat poverty, loneliness and isolation - in both our urban and rural areas.
Allerdale has long been a nursery for world-class sportspeople, it will be one of our priorities to ensure that our youth have access to training facilities.
Ensuring that democratically elected councillors from across the borough have their input, and that the authority starts from a default position of openness.
Ensuring that Allerdale Borough Council works for all residents of Allerdale.
Supporting smarter working between neighbouring borough and district councils, ultimately leading to cost savings for you.
A series of disastrous Allerdale Investment Partnership (AIP) land deals have left Allerdale taxpayers short changed.
