Our pledges for Stoke Newington

We are standing as your three Labour candidates to represent Stoke Newington on Hackney Council. You can find out more about us here - Susan and Louisa have been councillors for a number of years, and Mete is standing for the first time in this election.

Our priority is to be committed local councillors, responding to your issues, and identifying local priorities with you. We know there’s always more to do – and we want to continue to work with you to make our fantastic part of Hackney even better. We've set out our pledges for the next four years below. Please do get in touch if you have any questions or issues you want to raise with us. 

You can also download our most recent leaflet here.

Our pledges for Stoke Newington. We will:
  • campaign for better and more affordable housing – ensuring Hackney Homes estates in our ward continue to receive investment and are well managed, and for a better deal in the private rented sector
  • invest in our local green spaces – championing improvements to Abney Park Cemetery, planting more street trees and looking at ways with residents to transform neglected areas into spaces for growing
  • support a thriving local High Street – promoting the Shop Local campaign, campaign against more betting shops and payday lenders, and continue to push for more enforcement against late night venues that repeatedly cause disturbances for residents nearby
  • work for a cleaner and safer Stoke Newington – in partnership with the local police and council to reduce anti social behaviour, and take tough action against fly tipping, litter and dog fouling
  • campaign to improve road safety in Stoke Newington – making sure Stoke Newington continues to be a cycle and pedestrian friendly place, and working with TfL over the long term goal of removing the one way system
