Make the City Council more accountable to people by changing to the committee system. We've already launched a petition under the Localism Act 2011 to get a local referendum on the issue.
We remain committed to electing councillors by thirds until a proportional electoral system is available for council elections in England, as is already the case in Scotland.
Oppose the Tories' proposals for changing the local planning system. It will replace case-by-case assessments of individual applications with a zoning system (10-year plans). People's right to comment on individual applications will be much reduced.
Allocate funding across the city in a fair and transparent way, making sure it is spent on residents' priorities.
Continue giving Neighbourhood Boards/Forums an annual budget of £10,000.
