Our candidate for Salford Mayor in 2021 was Wendy Olsen who has worked as a sustainable-economics expert.  She is a local champion of Salford women, a feminist, an expert in employment and has worked in the community as a Director, Trustee, School Parent-Governor, treasurer, auditor, secretary and chair.

Wendy is ready to serve you and take cases. We will create a web page listing all the issues you raise, and our response actions. Wendy will be able get leave from her other paid work for being a Councillor, and thus she has time to offer to the Council.

Salford Green Party Pledges 2021-22

Greens as Councillors in Salford will carry out three Rapid, city-wide consultations on “Why Does Salford Council Charge for Rat Removal and Tips?”, “What is the Best Apartment Block Type?” and “Why have a Salford Mayor at all?! Our needs are….”

Medium term outcomes: more Council wifi points and more printing services to help learners learn; a mix of educational Clean Air Campaign actions and new policies against standing traffic; raise the home standards on landlord-owned homes; improve special rubbish-object removals; stop high levels of flytipping via an annual Free Waste Collection Day; open a web-page for issues to be raised; create more park-like cycle routes; limit vehicles to 20 mph in certain streets; and Council to promote using more local produce in restaurants.

As Salford City Mayor, Wendy Olsen aims to improve longterm the Council’s housing to avoid using Green Belt land; plan all towers of apartments to a maximum of 9 floors; avoid any congestion charge but instead use taxes to achieve carbon neutrality; rush toward reducing Council’s use of pesticides; plan the use of people-power to improve greenery and pathways (we hope to mix volunteer and paid part-time workers); plan educational places better, notably at Nursery and Primary level; remove the Salford area from the ‘plan of the nine’ spatial framework unless conditions are met; and lastly, stop growth of industrial-plants at Port Salford whilst improving the traffic and bus services there.
