The Liberal Democrat councillors on Uttlesford District Council have asked that the council should volunteer to house some refugees from Afghanistan, as part of the new Afghanistan citizens' settlement scheme announced by the Government today.
Uttlesford Liberal Democrats have said that the decisions of the Planning Inspectors allowing expansion at Stansted Airport to 43 million passengers per annum and the award of costs against Uttlesford District Council will result in an "environmental and financial disaster" for residents in the Uttlesford district.
Locally in Uttlesford we face a consistent line of attack from Residents for Uttlesford and from independent councillors against 'Westminster parties'.
Baroness Shirley Williams of Crosby was a great supporter of the Uttlesford Liberal Democrats. This photo was taken in 2017 when she last visited us to launch our last County Council election campaign. She gave one of her "off the cuff" speeches of great coherence and eloquence.RIP Shirley we will miss you
