On 20 March 2018, Kate Hoey MP and Neil Coyle MP - as Co-Chairman of South Bank Partnership - will launch the South Bank Manifesto 2018 and its shared vision of A Better South Bank for Everyone.
The Manifesto sets out six priorities for action:
The environment and public realm
Employment skills and learning
Managing growth and development
Security, crime prevention and safety
The MPs will be joined by all members of South Bank Partnership, and key stakeholders from across London, including Florence Eshalomi, Assembly Member for Lambeth and Southwark, and Professor Tony Travers from the London School of Economics and Chair of the London Finance Commission.
With support from The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, the 2018 Manifesto builds on previous commitments and achievements, and looks ahead to the challenges and opportunities that South Bank faces over the next four years. As London’s cultural heart, and one of the city’s leading destinations, South Bank is managing a key period of growth and development.
In overseeing this, South Bank Partnership and its members are committed to ensuring that this growth delivers benefits and opportunities for everyone - residents, employees, students and visitors.
The 2018 Manifesto highlights the connection between South Bank’s transformation over the past 20 years, and its track record of innovation and creativity. It calls for a renewed emphasis on this aspect of the Partnership work, to ensure that South Bank secures the resources and investment that it needs to deliver on the six priorities.
Kate Hoey MP and Neil Coyle said:
“We are very pleased to launch the South Bank Manifesto 2018, together with our members and partners. As with previous Manifestos, our ambitions are rightly high for South Bank, which is one of London’s most important places - culturally and economically - and as a real neighbourhood where resident, employers and others work together to address common ambitions. Our shared vision of A Better South Bank for Everyone is compelling, and we look forward to working with all our partners to achieve it.”
