As part of reshaping Uttlesford District Council (UDC), Residents for Uttlesford (R4U) has delivered the first ever Residents Charter at the council and the first of 4 supporting annual Delivery Plans has been approved. The Residents Charter can be downloaded from the R4U website at www.residents4u.org/charter.
Cllr John Lodge continued “Our Residents Charter commits the council to putting residents first; being an active community builder for our towns and villages; being a progressive custodian of our rural environment; and championing our district with other authorities. Delivering the charter will make Uttlesford the best place to live, work and play. Residents can read it on the R4U website. In support we have restructured portfolio responsibilities. Cllr Colin Day will now head up Communities, Neil Reeve Business and Investments, and Richard Freeman Council and Public Services’.”
Cllr Hargreaves concluded “Residents will have seen that since they elected us last year we have been busy fixing problems left by the previous administration, including the airport expansion, planning and finances. We thank residents for the trust they gave us. The new Residents Charter makes it 100% transparent that we are good to our word and that we are reshaping the district council to work better for them.”
