Saffron Walden Constituency Conservatives

A Conservative choice

Unhappy Tory voters do have a choice. Residents-for-Uttlesford is not a national political party. It is for informed residents that love where they live and want to create a better local future for their children and their children’s children. It wants a local government of the residents, by the residents for the residents.

This was in spite of the fact that they had been told several times that it would fail and it had been rejected by 99% twice. The by-product of this failure was the council let 1,000s of homes be built on Uttlesford towns and villages without the required infrastructure.
