Residents for Uttlesford (R4U) has announced that its administration at Uttlesford District Council has agreed to Stansted Mountfitchet Parish Council’s wish to take over the running of a new expanded Community Hub, which will be supported by a grant from UDC.
Cllr Richard Freeman added “Our localism and decentralisation ethos at R4U is enshrined in our Residents Charter at UDC. This often means allowing and supporting parish and town councils to provide services tailored to the needs of their community. Many residents will have seen the success of our approach in Saffron Walden. There, the R4U-led Town Council has been able to provide new and award-winning sports, play, business and tourism services that residents really value. We’re glad to continue to deliver on our manifesto pledge of giving residents more control and wish Stansted Mountfitchet Parish Council every success with their new Community Hub.”
