Here it's Lib Dem or Conservative

Lib Dems will...

Protect the NHS including Broomfield's A&E

Cut congestion (better bus, pedestrian + cycle facilities)

Bring more jobs to Chelmsford and affordable homes

Involve the public more

Conservatives...

Raised your council tax but didn't spend the extra cash!

Stashed away £20 million in the council bank account

Delivered traffic chaos by giving in to developers

Made too many decisions behind closed doors

    The Chapter House, Cathedral Walk, Chelmsford, CM1 1NX

    Please join us for a fun evening of whisky tasting with Lib Dem Chief Whip, Alistair Carmichael MP.

    Alistair is the Member of Parliament for Orkney and the Shetlands. During the coalition government, he served as Secretary of State for Scotland.

    Most importantly, though - Alistair is a highly entertaining speaker and a huge fan of whisky (well, he is from Scotland, after all), and he's coming to Chelmsford to help us try a few different bottles and maybe teach us a few things about them, too.

    Chelmsford's new leisure centre is costing £10 million more than the orginal estimate of £25 million, and now fees to use the facilities are set to rise to help plug the gap.

    Chelmsford Lib Dem councillor Stephen Robinson said the ballooning costs made a mockery of the decision not to have a diving board at the centre where former world champion Rebecca Gallantree first learned her craft.

  • Cash
    Article: Nov 6, 2018

    Essex County Council is piling up debts, as more and more residents take out loans to pay for their care fees.

    Councillor Stephen Robinson said: "We have to have a complete review of the way social care is funded.

    It is heart-breaking that the epidemic of violent crime is claiming the lives of so many children.

    A senior police office has now revealed that children as young as nine are being caught carrying knives.

    We urgently need more police officers on our streets to restore the community policing that helps to prevent violent crime.

    The delay in implementing a planned and much needed reduction in the maximum stake on fixed-odds betting terminals is completely unacceptable.

    These machines are a blight on our society and undeniably damaging to vulnerable people.

    The Government's inaction is ruining lives and they must not be allowed to continue making these excuses that only benefit bookmakers.
