UKIP Portsmouth



Culture and Heritage: Preserve our public libraries and develop a local buildings listing programme to allow communities to protect buildings of local importance.

Safer Communities: Keep real police officers on the beat and stop the scrapping of front-line police jobs. Adopt a zero tolerance approach to anti-social behaviour and crack down on nuisance neighbours.

Energise the voluntary sector: UKIP believes that the best decisions are decisions that are made locally. Community groups and volunteers are often better placed to run facilities and services than the State. By ensuring that these groups are supported, empowered and energised much more can be achieved.
