Nicky Cuthbert is Elected to represent Shenfield
Nicky got her success for an excellent debut campaign beating incumbent Jan Pound for the right to represent Shenfield residents. Nicky received an amazing reception on the doorstep with her focus on local issues. We have no doubt that she will prove to be a tireless and effective representative for Shenfield. Nicky is pictured with fellow Shenfield Liberal Democrat Councillor, Andy Fryd.
We were all delighted with Darryl's success on the 5th of May. Darryl has been a tireless campaigner for his ward and this success was long overdue. Darryl received an impressive 1098 votes putting him well clear of the Conservative incumbent, Jon Cloke who was seeking re-election.
Darryl will be an excellent local champion for the ward. On behalf of all in the party I want to wish Darryl all the best as he takes up this richly deserved position.
After some electoral reversals last year, the Tory government put on hold multiple controversial changes to the planning system that they had, until then, been proposing. During the Chesham and Amersham by-election campaign, for instance, the Lib Dems were helped to victory by being able to quote ex-Prime Minister Theresa May's criticisms of Johnson's proposed planning changes against the Tories themselves! Unfortunately, this still didn't mean that Britain's planning system was spared from Tory interference.

The Conservative Government is failing to deliver the promised 449 more police officers for Essex.
Analysis of Home Office statistics by the Liberal Democrats has shown that Essex's officer numbers rose by only 169 in the last year.
A total of 270 extra officers have been recruited by Essex Police under the Government's campaign that started in September 2019.
Brentwood is set to be hit hard by the expected rise in energy bills in April, new figures have revealed.

Liberal Democrat councillors on Brentwood Borough Council moved a motion demanding the reinstatement of a fully operational Police Station including a custody suite in Brentwood at the Ordinary Council meeting on Wednesday 8th December.
Sadly the motion was voted down by the Conservative councillors running Brentwood but the Lib Dem group intend to keep up the pressure and continue their call for action to be taken.
We the residents of Brentwood call upon the Essex Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner to reinstate a fully operational Police Station including a custody suite in our Borough.

It is regretable but we feel that given the spread of Omicron and the need to protect each other over the Christmas period we have taken the decision to cancel our Christmas get together. We will look to rearrange at a suitable point in the new year.
Wishing all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
