Cllr Alex Armstrong (R4U – Great Dunmow)
PCC Candidate Martin Terry
PCC Candidate Martin Terry is standing under the campaign of ‘Zero Tolerance Policing Ex-Chiefs’ which nationally includes a number of independent candidates backed by ex-police chiefs.
Martin Terry continued “If elected, I will have only one boss, residents. I will work tirelessly to fight for essential resources, find solutions to the station closings, get Bobbies back on the beat, and tackle the ‘non-emergency’ crime that locals don’t think is being taken seriously today.”
Martin Terry will be with R4U councillors answering questions from the public in the Saffron Walden Market Square on the morning of Saturday 23rd April, and Great Dunmow Market on the morning of Tuesday 26th.

About Residents for Uttlesford
Residents for Uttlesford (R4U) is the local independent party of north-west Essex towns and villages. Formed in 2014 by a number of residents’ groups, the party believes that on local issues residents should decide, not Westminster parties.
R4U leads Uttlesford District Council (UDC). It is the fastest growing local political movement in its district. In its first election in 2015 it became the second party at UDC. In 2017 it solidified its position with a further by-election gain with 60% of the vote. In the May 2019 Local Elections R4U gained majority control of UDC winning two-thirds of the seats. The result delivered the biggest loss of seats by any UK Conservative controlled council in the UK.
R4U’s success has been based on the desire to give local people a voice and implement long range strategic and sustainable plans for their area.
R4U also leads Saffron Walden Town Council, where under its stewardship the council has rebuilt finances, invested in community assets, and won multiple awards, including the best run council in Essex. It is a minority party on Great Dunmow Town Council.
