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-west Essex to provide a strong, independent voice for local people. The party believes that on local issues local residents should decide, not politicians from Westminster parties.
Uttlesford residents achieved their first election gains in 2013 and have been increasing their voter share ever since. R4U is the fastest growing local political movement in the district. In 2015 they became the second party in Uttlesford District Council. In 2017 R4U achieved further gains with a 60% share of the vote in a local district council by-election. The party is the fastest growing local political movement in the area. Success has been based on the group’s desire to give local people a voice and implement long range strategic and sustainable plans for their area.
Residents for Uttlesford also has numerous Town and Parish Councillors. It is the largest party at Saffron Walden Town Council, where under its stewardship, the council has rebuilt its finances, invested in community assets, and won multiple awards.
