Bring more jobs to Chelmsford and affordable homes

Conservatives...

Are closing up to 44 libraries across Essex

Don't build the vital infrastructure we need to

    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.

    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.

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

    Residents in Harwood Road, and many of the roads off it, are becoming very aware that parking locally is more of a problem, as well as across the whole of Chelmsford.

    With the usual difficulties at the start and end of the school day, we now find that commuter parking is also becoming an issue. Since other roads close by will soon be part of the residents parking permit scheme, commuters and others are moving this way, parking and walking into town.

    In July 2016, in the aftermath of the referendum, the Liberal Democrats were a lone voice calling for a final say on whatever deal was done on Brexit.

    Last week, an estimated 700,000 people marched on the streets of London, calling for a people's vote on Brexit.

    That makes it the biggest protest since the Iraq War.
