Stephen Robinson - campaigning for you all year round

Stephen Robinson campaigning for 'lollipop' crossing patrolStephen Robinson is a hard-working, Chelmsford campaigner. He led the fight on our councils against Conservative plans to downgrade Broomfield Hospital A&E and against the Conservative Local Plan that does not deliver enough infrastructure (schools, transport, GPs, affordable housing etc.)

Among other local issues, he organised a petition (sign here) for road safety in Copperfield Road, following Conservative cuts to "lollipop" crossing patrols.

He is a Chelmsford City Councillor for Patching Hall ward (since May 2011) and Lib Dem Group Leader, and Essex County Councillor for North Chelmsford since June 2012.

Stephen is the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Chelmsford and in 2010 he came close to being elected as the MP.

In Chelmsford, elections are either won by Liberal Democrats or Conservatives. No other party won any council seats in Chelmsford in 2013 or 2015 or 2017.

    Essex, Southend and Thurrock councils have produced a joint Strategy "Let's talk Dementia". The joint strategy has nine priority areas for action:
    • Prevention
    • Finding Information and Advice
    • Diagnosis and Support
    • Living well with Dementia in the community
    • Supporting Carers
    • Reducing the risk of crisis
    • Living well in long term care
    • End of Life
    • A Knowledgeable and Skilled Workforce

    Chelmsford is suffering a worsening housing crisis. Figures out recently show that people on lower incomes, especially younger people, are unable to find anywhere affordable to live.

    Over 1000 people in 380 households are now homeless in Chelmsford. That 380 was just 53 in 2013. It costs the council vast sums of money to put people up in very expensive bed and breakfast accommodation.
