Our council has boosted the economy and won over Labour voters. It’s a model that could work across the UK – Matthew Brown, Labour Leader of Preston City Council

Preston City Council was the only Labour-led authority in Lancashire to retain all its seats in the recent local elections. Despite the losses the party experienced across the UK, Preston’s success shows what can happen when a Labour council puts forward a transformative political vision.
