    In light of the global situation and following the closure of Chelmsford City Theatres, Chelmsford City Council has closed its sports and leisure centres, museums and the Hylands House buildings with immediate effect - but essential services are still running as normal.

    All four leisure centres* are closed from the end of Friday 20 March. All direct debits for Wellness, Swim School, Skate School, Sports School and Patch memberships will be automatically frozen during the closure and members will be given advance notice when the centres re-open. Anyone who has booked a course, party or other activity will be refunded automatically.

    The Liberal Democrats fully accept the Government decision to postpone the Borough Council Elections until next year.

    With the country facing an unprecedented crisis with COVID -19, local elections were an unnecessary distraction when fighting this virus and saving lives is far more important.

    Our candidates thank you for your support, donations and the time you spent talking to them on the doorsteps.

    Summary

    On 2 May 2019 we, the people who live in Tendring, elected our representatives for the following four years. The Tendring Liberal Democrats increased our share of the vote and Councillor Gary Scott (Alresford & Elmstead) was re-elected along with Ann Wiggins (also Alresford & Elmstead) who was elected for the first time. In other areas including, Burrsville and Manningtree, Mistley & Lawford we came close to winning further seats. We stood on the manifesto below and this is what we are still campaigning for in the Tendring District.

  • New trees Great North Road
    Article: Mar 6, 2020

    174,000 new trees over the next 10 years, hundreds of affordable homes, tackling rough sleeping and much more. Chelmsford City Council under Lib Dem leadership has passed a budget that delivers a greener, safer, fairer and better connected Chelmsford.

    At the recent Full Council meeting in Chelmsford, Councillors backed the Lib Dem budget proposed by Cllr Chris Davidson and seconded by Cllr Stephen Robinson. Cllr Davidson explained that the budget would deliver on the Liberal Democrat manifesto from the 2019 elections. The prudent borrowing that he proposed would enable the council to put homeless families in proper housing AND save local taxpayers cash that is being spent on unsuitable temporary accomodation.
