Many local campaigns have had support from the Bromley Green Party. Our Green people have been getting involved, taking action in a bid to ensure there is growth, not over-development, that our vulnerable have publicly run services, our NHS is preserved and that our local society is fair and sustainable.
With the South London Hospital groups, we have been supporting the call to keep the NHS in public hands – free and fair treatment to all.
Supported preservation of the Green Belt; campaigned against the sale of the hilltop in Crystal Palace Park to a developer who wants to build a hotel and conference centre there (see our full statement on this).
Supported local elderly and the disabled in efforts to keep services and local facilities run by the Council, not by private Agencies; supported the bid by the Disabled People Against the Cuts (DPAC) for the council to scrap the Bedroom Tax.
