The London Assembly and Mayoral Elections are going to be held on May 3rd 2012. Together the Mayor and Assembly are responsible for Transport, Policing, Housing, Planning and the Environment.

This is five point plan for a more equal, healthy and affordable City. The full manifesto can be found here.

1. CUT FARES AND REDUCE TRAFFIC

We will ensure public transport is always cheaper than driving. We will make suburban rail services more regular and reduce traffic congestion to clean up London’s polluted air.

2. IMPROVE GREEN SPACES AND THE ENVIRONMENT

We will complete a network of green spaces to give everyone access to nature. We will plant more street trees, restore flood plains and generate clean energy from food waste.

3. MAKE HOUSING AFFORDABLE

We will build genuinely affordable housing and refurbish a million homes to cut energy bills. We will push to give private tenants more security and stabilise rent levels.

4. REDUCE THE GAP BETWEEN RICH AND POOR

We will offer a job or apprenticeship to all young, unemployed Londoners and award a Fair Pay Mark to companies who reduce pay inequality amongst their employees

5. REBUILD TRUST IN POLICING

We will put more officers on the beat focused on important areas such as road safety, not unnecessary surveillance. We will rebuild trust in the police, especially amongst the young.

A Green Mayor will save the average household hundreds of pounds each year.

A Green London will be a model for the world in addressing climate change, a city more equal, healthy and affordable for everyone.
