Welcome to the Plymouth Green Party!
The Green Party has big, bold ideas to create a new Britain that we can all be proud of. We aren’t afraid to hope for a better future or to be honest about how we get there.
We believe in being brave, in speaking our minds, and in standing up for what matters. We are proud to do politics differently.

"One more Labour or Tory councillor won’t make a difference. But one Green could change everything!"
Greens are contesting more than 2200 seats on May 3 and hope to elect Greens on more local authorities than ever before as the party works towards having a Green on every council.
HERE ARE SOME OF OUR POLICIES:
Food waste recycling: sustainable solution to organic waste management and access to the AD plant at Langage
Support local recycling enterprises
Traffic reduction measures, bus priority, encourage walking/cycling including new pedestrianisation schemes (Ebrington Street? Barbican?)
Promote electric cargo bikes for small freight transport in the city
Seek rent control powers/landlord licensing etc
Support arts, cultural, community activities
Work with PEC to boost renewable energy schemes
Support marine conservation schemes (including plastic free initiatives)
Greens promise to repair social homes, give residents a say in their future and stand up against unwanted demolition of estates - treat social housing with the value it deserves - and end Right to Buy: Greens value social housing and will fight to protect it
Work to repair social homes instead of demolishing them in favour of developers building private housing: give people a say in their futures - with meaningful input into plans for their community and a ballot for residents on the demolition of their homes. (end Right to Buy, which has seen the number of social homes sold increase by more than 400% since Conservative ministers revamped the rules in 2012)
Brexit 2nd referendum - a People's Poll
Bring in an Environment Act immediately
Bring the national plastics ban forward; Implement a bottle deposit scheme now
Ban fracking - Commit to long term support for renewables
