Building a better Eastleigh: A Radical New Approach To Local Economics

For any resident who might be interested. I wrote this piece for our website, outlining the foundation for Eastleigh Labour’s economic plan.

While this isn’t everything, it is the foundation for what will be the most comprehensive and radical long term economic vision for Eastleigh, in its history.

If you have any questions please reach out, I’d love to talk more with you about this project!

Great piece, Josh. I’ll also share this information for residents to review:

I think this is a good summary which you cover as well:

  • Plural and localised ownership of Eastleigh’s economy
  • Making and creating financial power work for Eastleigh
  • Fair employment
  • Progressive and innovation-driven procurement of goods and services
  • Socially productive use of land and property in Eastleigh

The power Eastleigh could have if we really focused on our local economy, it would transform the local area - for businesses and residents.
