“Henham and Elsenham residents had been poorly represented in the past on local issues by national party politics, but since 2017, our villages have shown that residents’ power can bring more positive changes for local people. I’m a man of action and proud to have played my part. If you elect me again, I will continue to work for only one boss, my fellow residents and our village life.” Garry LeCount
At Uttlesford District Council Garry serves on the Scrutiny Committee to review decisions and uphold standards. He recently voted to submit the district Local Plan to Government as he felt Henham and Elsenham had taken more than its fair share of new housing.
