Uttlesford Conservatives & the Saffron Walden Constituency

Uttlesford District lies within the Saffron Walden parliamentary constituency. Uttlesford Conservative voters now have another choice for local elections. Whilst Westminster parties have their place on national issues and in parliamentary elections, we at RESIDENTS FOR UTTLESFORD (R4U) believe all politics should be local.

The national parties are in disarray and not listening to residents. We are not a national political party. We are residents that love where they live and want to create a better local future for their children and their children’s children. We want a local government of the residents, by the residents for the residents.

Even if you vote for the Conservative in parliamentary elections, you can vote RESIDENT for local elections.

Westminster parties failing Uttlesford residents

The Conservative Party has led Uttlesford District Council for more than a decade. They have become stale, have run out of ideas and are failing residents on planning, finance, schools, roads, local jobs, housing,  libraries, pollution, crime and much more.

One of the biggest failures is they they have wasted more than £5 million of local taxpayers money developing a flawed Local Plan that was refused by the Planning Inspectorate. A by-product of the failure is that residents have been left a developer-free-for-all where 1,000s of houses are being built all over Uttlesford towns and villages without the required infrastructure.

Local representation and the Uttlesford Conservatives

At Residents For Uttlesford we believe in true local representation – “if you don’t drive over the pothole every day,  how do you know it’s there?”

The Conservatives have become complacent and are taking voters for granted. For the 2019 local elections they haven’t even published a manifesto to tell residents what they propose to do. In the following wards the Conservatives are standing candidates who don’t live there:

  • Ashdon
  • Great Dunmow North
  • Great Dunmow South and Barnston
  • Newport
  • Saffron Walden Audley
  • Saffron Walden Castle
  • Saffron Walden Shire
  • Stansted North
  • Stansted South & Birchanger
  • Stort Valley
  • Takeley

Switch to RESIDENT for better local results

In 2015 Residents For Uttlesford took over leadership of the Saffron Walden Town Council from the Conservatives. Years of mismanagement had left a £1m financial black hole and crumbling assets. In 4 years under Residents leadership the council has been turned around to be multi-award-winning. R4U is currently  the second party at Uttlesford District Council (UDC) and has a goal of taking over leadership of the council on the 2nd May 2019 local elections. Please help us to help all local residents.
