The MAYNE view


You can find our high level policies here. On this page, below, you can find a summary of our plans to deliver these policies. Click on each to find the detail.


Aspiration is always good, of course, but our focus is always on implementation. A policy needs to be practical and its implementation must make a measurable difference.


As we get closer to the election date we will publish a summary of our policies, their means of implementation and how you will know that we are achieving the objectives that you will have voted for. The order is not significant; if it is important enough to be here then it is important enough to be part of our plan when we are elected.
