Britain Remade is a campaign to promote economic growth

Britain Remade is a new campaign to promote economic growth. We put forward practical solutions to the problems holding Britain back.

But our economy has stalled, and we have fallen behind. British families are now around £13,500 worse off than the average American family and almost £6,000 worse off than the average German family. If we cannot turn it around, we’re set to be overtaken by Poland within a decade.

We believe that a core problem holding Britain back is that it is too hard to build things in this country. We want to reform the planning process to deliver more clean energy projects, transport infrastructure, and new good quality housing at speed.

If you agree and want to see better infrastructure, more investment, and the creation of new industries in your area, then sign up and back our campaign.

Standing up
for people

We think that many of today’s problems can be solved by listening to the people affected by them.

That’s why we'll be holding events across the UK to listen to your views and share our practical solutions to the problems the UK faces.

  1. Is this a political party or group?

    No. We’re a new independent grassroots organisation. We are not affiliated with, or part of, any political party.

  2. What are you trying to do?

    We’re here to listen to, and represent, ordinary people. People who don’t normally do politics, or think the system works for them, but want to see change where they live.

    We believe things can be different. We can have a faster-growing, cleaner, economy. We'll be holding events across the UK to listen to your views, and to inform the development of our practical solutions to Britain's problems. We'll then campaign to make these solutions a reality.

  3. Are you a national campaign?

    Yes, Britain Remade is a national campaign. We launched in Yorkshire, but we will be visiting and campaigning for every region and nation in the UK.

  4. Is this just for people who work in politics?

    No, exactly the opposite. This is a campaign for ordinary people who think things can be different and better.
