After retiring from Police as an Inspector after a 30 year career in the Met, Colin Day went on to be the General Manager of a golf club. He’s lived just north of Dunmow for 22 years with his wife.
“The residents of Uttlesford are entitled to have their say in how the district is run and the forthcoming elections are an opportunity for the residents to vote for an important change in how they are represented.” Colin Day
Colin cares about affordable homes but believes that it is the wrong location to build a new town under the runways between the airport, Takeley and Dunmow.

Colin Day spent a career of 30 years in the Metropolitan Police and retired in the rank of Inspector. As a second career he entered the golf leisure industry and later became the General Manager of a prestigious private members golf club in Berkskire.
He has lived in Lindsell just north of Dunmow with his wife for the past 22 years.
Colin is very keen to ensure that the owners of Stansted Airport are kept in check by the powers invested in the District Council.
He believes there is a need for far more affordable homes and council housing in Uttlesford to cater for the next generation so that they can live in the area they were brought up in. However he has campaigned as a member of Stop Easton Park to try and persuade the District Council and the recently appointed examining Planning Inspectors that 10,000 new homes so close to Dunmow and Stansted Airport is a totally inappropriate place for large-scale building.
He says that he believes that “the residents of Uttlesford are entitled to have their say in how the District is run and the forthcoming elections are an opportunity for the residents to vote for an important change in how they are represented.”
