EastLondonLines talked to Gordon Ross, the Green Party’s London Assembly candidate for Croydon and Sutton, about his campaign.
• Help local businesses: supermarkets should pay rates on large car parks and the money would be used to provide easier parking for smaller shops
• A basic affordable rent for London, calculated each year. Government money and land would only go to projects coming in under that cost: “Decent housing should be a right for everyone.”
• Stop the incinerator: “It’s not the best solution for the environment, or for people in Croydon and Sutton.”
• Defend public services, and keep the NHS and schools in public hands.
