    On 2 May this year we, the people who live in Tendring, will elect our representatives for the next four years. Who we elect will determine what kind of council we get. Many people are fed up with the council and politics. But the answer isn't to stay at home and not vote. That gives a free run to councillors who do little and don't listen to you.

    "Lib Dem councillor Carole Mulroney said "Whichever way the Police, Crime and Fire Commissioner dress this up, there has been a reduction of immense proportions in the police numbers in Essex. In Southend we have seen the worst of this and as a consequence we now have citizens in all areas worried about the potential for knife crime, concerned about increases in burglaries and thefts and scared of anti-social behaviour - on top of the hate crime, drugs issues and cybercrime. The need is desperate in all our areas."

    It's clearer than ever that we need a People's Vote and a chance to remain in the EU.

    We know with each new poll that comes out, from a million people marching in Westminster, from six million people signing a parliamentary petition and from votes in Parliament that this is the only way to break the deadlock.

    Liberal Democrat councillors want the Planning Legal Agreement (S.106) and Planning Conditions to be reviewed and agreed by Uttlesford Council's Planning Committee before a Decision Notice is issued to Stansted Airport Limited/Manchester Airport Group.

    This evening (Tuesday, April 9th), at Uttlesford's routine council meeting, Lib Dem councillors will invite councillors from across all political groups to sign the requisition calling for an Extraordinary Council Meeting to ensure the review takes plan and that a Decision Notice is not issued prematurely to the applicant.

    Local Liberal Democrats want a planning legal agreement between Uttlesford District Council (UDC) and Manchester Airport Group at Stansted Airport that does not short-change residents. They have called for a halt to Stansted Airport being issued with a premature Planning Decision Notice by UDC. The Lib Dems say a Decision Notice to allow the go-ahead for airport expansion should be held back until a robust planning agreement has been negotiated and approved by the council's planning committee.

    Liberal Democrat councillors called for Essex Council to take a lead on undertaking full assessments for clean air zones to tackle air pollution in February 2019. The Conservatives rejected the idea.
