Our plan for Britain
The Labour Party has always been about people. It was formed to give ordinary people a voice and has sought power in order to improve their lives. The fruits of this work have changed Britain for the better, through the most progressive governments in our country’s history.
Ours is a proud history, with achievements – from the NHS to the minimum wage– that have made a lasting difference to the lives of people across our country.
You can find out where we stand on all National Issues as a democratic party on the Labour Party website.
Our Plan for the High Peak
Labour Party councillors share a common interest in an equal society. We want to hold onto services which make a difference to our local community. We want to make our streets safer. We want to properly fund our schools and health services. We ultimately want to end Conservative-driven austerity and the cruel and unnecessary cuts to our communities’ vital services.
Key local issues include cuts to health and voluntary services, parking, traffic, housing and visits from bailiffs. These elections are absolutely crucial as foundations for a National Labour Government – much of Labour’s policy will depend on local Labour councils.
