The Green Party has unveiled its full list of candidates across the city ahead of the local elections next month.

The party will stand 54 candidates across the city’s 23 wards to fight every seat up for grabs in Brighton and Hove.

Among their candidates include three former councillors: Ollie Sykes, Christopher and Georgia Wrighton.

Nine of the city’s current Green councillors are stepping down, including Amy Heley, Tom Druitt and Sarah Nield.

The Greens have pledged to build 800 more sustainable council homes by 2028, introduce a food waste collection service and build a new sports facility to replace the King Alfred Sports Centre.

Phelim Mac Cafferty, leader of the city council, said that voting Green is a vote for action on addressing climate change and for a fairer city for all.

He said: “I am delighted to unveil our full team of fantastic Green Party candidates ready to represent communities across Brighton and Hove in the council elections.

“Many councillors are re-standing, alongside a number of former councillors who are returning which will boost the wealth of experience in our team.

“Combined with a number of experienced new community candidates, we have a wealth of energy, talent and insight.

“This will be important to continue leading the council, tackling the housing crisis, playing our part to fight the climate crisis and unlocking investment and attracting jobs and opportunities.

“When you vote Green on May 4, you vote for action - action on the climate crisis and action for a fairer Brighton and Hove.”
