Bromsgrove Labour Party promise radical plans to build sports hall

Labour leader, Michael Thompson – District Councillor for Rock Hill, has promised the people of Bromsgrove that if Labour are elected in May that they can expect much more for much less.

This weeks Bromsgrove Advertiser featured a article on the plans – click here for the full story. 

“At the time of elections it is typical that parties make promises to get votes. Sadly, because of the reputation of politics, residents are sceptical when it comes to these promises. All Bromsgrove residents have seen for over ten years, from the Tories, is taxes increases and services decreased.”

“Since the launch of the manifesto we have received a terrific response from residents. We have, of course, been asked by the people how we intend to pay for it. This is understandable.”

“Much of what we promise, such as bringing the leisure centre under council control or building a sports hall, will bring in money rather than cost. Why do private industries want to run these services if not to make money? – I think that profit should go back into the pockets of the tax payers, not into the hands of people outside of the district.”

“There are so many ways to save money for our people which we will do if we are elected such as….

Restructuring the senior management of the council to a realistic and affordable level (it costs us of £1M a year).

Abolishing our shared service programme with Redditch, where our taxes are subsidising services in Redditch as well as our own.

Making immediate and better commercial use of our assets (the disused old Burcot Lane council house, for example, is still costing over £100,000 a year to keep).”
