Fred and Liz’s priorities are your priorities. Over the past few months Labour’s candidates have listened to residents across the new ward of Bournville & Cotteridge. Liz and Fred have used what they’ve learned from all these conversations to develop their campaign pledges to you.


  • Build council houses and affordable properties to rent and buy.
  • Protect tenants’ rights and ensure homes are fit to live in.


  • Keep the weekly bin collection, target fly-tippers and increase recycling.
  • Reduce the use of plastic and cut air pollution.
  • Protect parks and open spaces.

Stronger, Safer Communities

  • Protect neighbourhood policing.
  • Crack down on dangerous parking.
  • Tackle gangs and knife crime.

Education and Training

  • Fight government cuts to school budgets.
  • Fund nursery places.
  • A job opportunity for every young person.

Social Care for our most vulnerable

  • Support older people and tackle loneliness.
  • Improve the quality of council funded care.

Help Build a better Birmingham

  • Help deliver Building a Better Birmingham, Labour’s radical and responsible manifesto for Birmingham. Our four year-plan delivers a programme of hope for the people of the city, in the face of hundreds of millions of pounds worth of cuts delivered by Tory Governments over the last eight years.
