Housing, Local Government and Transport

The Housing, Local Government and Transport Policy Commission develops Labour policy concerning local government and devolution, housebuilding and the housing sector, and Britain’s transport infrastructure and services.

The Commission meets regularly to consider evidence and submissions, identify challenges, and develop Labour’s policy in these areas. The members of the Policy Commission are drawn from the National Policy Forum, the Shadow Cabinet and the National Executive Committee. Its membership reflects all parts of our movement, including Labour party members, affiliated organisationsand elected politicians.


This policy area discusses putting power in the hands of local people. This is a broad topic, including the types of devolution and the types of powers that should be devolved to different areas, funding local services as well as the role of direct democracy.
