John Langley's policies
Statement to voters
Party politics MUST be put to one side, as must all manifesto promises, plans, pledges, and projects, because nothing can be any more important than enabling the people of Bristol and the businesses which have suffered back on their feet, and communities rebuilt.
My Mayoral election campaign is everything to do with people and nothing to do with the same old party politics because it's what I believe Bristol needs right now. In my estimation, it may take two years of dedicated and focused community leadership and partnering with mental health services, community groups, local businesses, faith leaders, charities, and voluntary groups to make this happen, because right now in the wake of lockdown people need hope, confidence, and jobs.
Protest tourism will end and there will be significant changes in the way protests are managed in order to support peaceful protest, while enforcing more stringent measures against those whose purpose is to cause violence, criminal damage, and disruption to transport and business. Those living illegally on roadside dwellings in residential areas will be moved on by force, where necessary to do so, as part of my overall 'Safer, Cleaner Bristol' initiative.
As part of my 'Food Sustainability' programme school children will be provided with free school meals, and this will be rolled out in Bristol's most deprived areas first.
In terms of housing, in the main there is no such thing as 'affordable' housing in Bristol within the private rented sector as things currently stand, I will therefore introduce rent capping so that no one has to pay any more than one-third of their total income on rent and without causing hardship to individual landlords who rely on rental payments to cover their overheads. Housing benefit processing and payments will be speeded up also.
