VOTERS have the chance to have their say in setting Labour policy ahead of next year's council elections.

The party has set up a manifesto page on which residents can say what priorities they believe a Labour council elected in 2014 should have.

The survey also seeks ideas on how council costs can be reduced while, at the same time, improving services.

The party is seeking views on its stance on key issues, including its opposition to the proposed incinerator on the Croydon/Sutton border; cancellation of the privatisation of libraries; introducing 20mph speed limits on residential roads and funding free school dinners for all schoolchildren.

In addition, Labour's green policies will be discussed at a public meeting being held at Ruskin House in Coombe Road, Croydon, on June 19.

The meeting starts at 7.30pm and the guest speaker will be Caroline Flint MP, Labour's shadow environment minister.

Labour leader Councillor Tony Newman said: "When people ask what the difference is between Labour and Conservative, this initiative sets out very clearly our difference: Labour invites people to give us their views or attend a public policy debate, free of charge.

"Labour is clear about our plans for Croydon; we will end the current Tory culture of a town hall shrouded in secrecy, webcast all meetings and publish papers in advance of meetings."
