The whole of Värmdö shall be alive!
Sweden is changing, Värmdö is changing and we are advancing.
We are striving for the best for Värmdö. Many have lived here for a long time, others moved in yesterday. We are all individuals with our own ideas and interests which we would like to develop.Politics must not only solve important daily problems, but above all strengthen the good things we have on Värmdö. We wish to concentrate on the future of our many small and young Värmdö inhabitants as well as our security.
In our Värmdö
People decide more and the politicians decide less.
Everyone must have good possibilities to take the responsibility for their own life,however people have different requirements. All who need help must know that they can get it. There is an undeniable responsibility when personal capabilities are insufficient.
A coalition for you
A number of parties are working together to form a well defined alternative. The Moderaterna, Folkpartiet and Kristdemoktraterna have formed ”The Värmdö Coalition”.
A part of Greater Stockholm
Many of the daily problems facing those who live on Värmdö are not pertaining to local government. The majority commute to work in Stockholm. The County Council is responsible for the Health Service and Public Transport; Central Government is responsible for the Police and Roads.
With your support we can make our voice heard in local, county and general elections.
Value for taxes
Quality comes before tax reductions. Many can help develop municipal services – employees, other municipalities, companies and associations. For example, you have the freedom to choose the school, social welfare service or leisure activities which suit you best. We believe that by concentrating on points of major interest, effectivity, cooperation with others and reduced burocracy Värmdö should not need to have the highest taxes in the county.
Our goal is that people should be able to live on their income. Taxes and charges should therefore be kept low.
Many young on Värmdö
A secure growing up environment, good schools and purposeful leisure time are some obvious points. We believe in a varied, high quality balanced leisure programme, with all subsidies for youth activities grouped together under a ”Youth Card” thereby giving the young the power and possibility to decide daily, instead of the politicians deciding.
Moderaterna will also give priority to those points of interest which are of concern to teenagers. Increased voluntary work amongst teenagers, increased field work and anti drug activities. We believe that the best schooling, proper employment, own home and freedom from the menace of crime are also part of ”Youth Policy”.
Knowledge shall be foremost.
Schooling shall meet the requirement of the individual. Grades shall be given earlier and be accurately correct.Pupils requiring special help shall have it early so as to be able to achieve better results.
Headmasters and teachers in local schools should have more freedom, and the school budget shall increase next year to give better quality.We wish that more free schools be established here so that all pupils can find the best possibility for their education. The young of Värmdö should have the chance to select from the best High School possibilities.
Our home in unique natural surroundings
The character of Värmdö shall remain unchanged as shall the nature of it´s different regions.
Animal life and nature influence how we develop Värmdö, for example the conservation of green and grazing areas. New housing development shall first be built as careful complement to older established areas, conversion to permanent all year round living, and islands where housing already exists.
We intend to speed up planning time, to simplify building regulations and to quicken the issue of building permissions.
The world unique archipelago environment makes special demands, for example concern for the supply and discharge of water.
We are providing municipal water supplies more rapidly without overdetailed plans. ”WC interdiction” is replaced by clearer function requirements of local solutions.
All new ideas are welcome for new building development.
We give priority to appartments for the young, the islands, retirement housing for those with special needs, and new rentable property.
* A new public transport centre adjacent to the motorway near to the Ingarö interchange with the possibility for trams in future.
* A ring route in Gustavsberg.
* Improved bus and boat traffic also to include outlying areas.
* Improved facilities for walking, riding and cycling.
* A four lane road between Ålstäket and Mölnvik.
* Long term planning for roads 222 and 274.
We intend to work for the widening of the bridge over the Skuru strait and the completion of the ring road around Stockholm.
We do not want congestion tax for entry to Stockholm and consider that all living on Värmdö should have been included in the referendum voting after the first trial period.
Local government should show more initiative concerning traffic safety, especially where children are concerned.
Higher employment with more people in real jobs. Värmdö needs new and growing companies.
There should be good service from public authorities, less problems with regulations, privatisation of social welfare services, leisure etc.
Värmdö should be looked upon by private companies as one of the best in Sweden.
Increased employment will reduce commuting requirement.
Pensioners and social welfare
* All pensioners shall have the right to a safe retirement – a meaningful life.
* We want to have special housing accomodation in all areas of the community.
* Retirement housing without the necessity of a decision for subsidy.
Quality, freedom of choice and development of social welfare for the elderly in pace with requirement is of the utmost importance.
Help and support for those in difficult situations should be obvious, whether it concerns children, the young or grown ups – pupil help, psychiatric problems, disabilities, drug misuse etc.
* New forms of cooperation between the business world and culture.
* Cultural heritage – the common memory.
* The library – a part of our democracy.
* The disabled´s right to a rich varied life of culture.
