- Affordable housing: A new scheme to be rolled out to help first time buyers
- Sentencing laws: to change the current system to stop repeat offenders by ending concurrent sentences
- More CCTV to be rolled out in key public areas to deter anti-social behaviour and keep our neighbourhoods safe
- Greater supports are needed for small to medium sized businesses. They are the backbone of our communities
- Increase in funding for disability services.
- Climate change to be proactively tackled through concrete measures and actions
