Saffron Walden Town Council

In 2015 the residents of Saffron Walden voted for a positive change in the town. Years of poor oversight and neglect by previous administrations had left civic assets crumbing and a near £1m financial black hole. Residents trusted us with all their district council seats and leadership of the town council. Since then we’ve worked hard to restore civic pride.

More information about Uttlesford electoral areas

A number of wards are combined into a county council Division, which is in effect a ‘super ward’.
 
Essex County Council has four Divisions in Uttlesford, each returning a single County Councillor, who are elected every 4 years. These elections are offset from the District elections by 2 years. That means that the next Essex County Council election is in May 2021.
