Residents for Uttlesford (R4U) is fielding candidates in both Uttlesford District Council by-elections on 6th May for the Newport and Sampfords wards.
R4U’s Neil Hargreaves continued “Judy Emanuel is an accomplished Newport Parish Councillor and we work well as a team. Her career spans start-ups, recruiting companies and a large IT consultancy. She’s been part of the driving force behind the Newport Quendon & Rickling Neighbourhood Plan and been successful at appeals stopping major unsustainable development in the ward. She’s highly active in the ward, where she lives with her family.”
R4U’s Martin Foley concluded “Two years ago residents elected R4U to lead UDC as the party of positive change – and we have delivered. The inherited £multi-million financial hole has been fixed, the previous administration’s failed Local Plan is back on track, and we’re fighting at appeal to prevent an unsustainable airport expansion. New income is delivering sports facilities, a £1m climate change programme, and a £1m Covid High Street and local economy recovery programme. But there is much more to do. Electing Residents for Uttlesford’s Judy Emanuel and Uli Gerhard to UDC will give ward residents the best local representation possible and help us make more positive changes at UDC.”
