About Residents for Uttlesford
Residents for Uttlesford (R4U) is the local party of towns and villages. The party was formed by a number of residents’ groups in north Essex to provide a strong, independent voice for the views of the residents of the area. The party believes that on local issues locals should decide, not the Westminster party whip.
Uttlesford residents achieved substantial election gains in May 2015. Election successes were based on the group’s localism advocacy platform and the desire to create and implement long range strategic and sustainable plans for their area.
Residents for Uttlesford has 11 Uttlesford District Councillors and many Town and Parish Councillors. It is the Second Party at Uttlesford District Council and the first party at Saffron Walden Town Council.
