Kensington and Chelsea Manifesto Launch 2018


Last night (26th March 2018) we launched our Kensington and Chelsea Manifesto.

We set out our plans to deliver real change for the residents of Kensington and Chelsea. Our manifesto aims to revolutionise the way Kensington and Chelsea Council serves it’s residents.

Just a few of our policy areas include:

  • 0% council tax increase
  • Support our EU citizens
  • Improve the quality of air in the borough
