Real involvement in the community
Regular ‘ward walks’ to pick up local issues quickly. Councillor surgeries for residents to raise issues directly. Involve local community expertise in decision making.
Use the council’s powers for good
Favour local employers when awarding contracts. Use the Council’s voice in planning to push for affordable homes, open spaces, and cycle and foot paths.
Protect Ely’s natural environment
A community-led Nature Recovery plan. Involve residents in planting and caring for trees. Use local talent to reduce waste with repair cafes. Make cycling easier with more bike racks.
20’s plenty for Ely
20mph limits are safer for everyone and better for the environment. The campaign to introduce this in Ely is underway. We need more voices for change to make it a priority.
A thriving Ely centre
Let’s make sure we have an accessible and lively centre to attract locals and tourists alike. We need a broad range of leisure activities to suit all tastes, including free events.
