What LRA has
and will continue to do if re-elected
Loughton's Green Spaces -
Our town and the Forest is under threat, but LRA always defends your amenities and our
Local Plan - LRA spent LRA money and got changes at the Inquiry. We've helped save Jessel Green,
Marlescroft Green, and the cricket
ground. Conservative Cllrs would build on our green open spaces.
high rise and no garden-grabbing - 1021 homes in the
Conservative Loughton Plan
would be harmful town cramming and would further damage our fragile Forest. Our infrastructure can't
take this increase. The
Central Line and roads
can't cope now - we have
traffic congestion and air
pollution daily. Where
will future children play and new schools be built? Bus services are cut yet more homes are planned.
Conservative Cllrs living
in other towns voted for
the so-called 'Landmark' flats - far too high.
charging (CAZ) - Conservatives want to cram our town with
extra flats and cars which
would further damage the Forest. To 'mitigate' this they plan to charge cars going to Epping or
Waltham Abbey. LRA opposes
this - we would all drive a bit further to avoid the charging zone
has 34 Seats on 3 Councils - We say: Residents and our
County Council - Conservative dominated, gets 74% of YOUR Council Tax. Add Essex Police and Fire charges
and it's 89%.
& pavements - are a county-wide disgrace.
Conservative run County
Council failed over 20 years to repair them. We always chase up until repairs are done in our town.
- Commuters park free near our stations and residents can't park in their roads. LRA fights for parking
solutions and got the Council to put resident-only
controls in 14 roads near Debden Station - we want the displaced parking solved next. LRA also got,
with Cllr Metcalfe, resident-only parking
in Forest Road, Smarts Lane & High Beech Road.
to protect our town - Greedy developers try to exploit Government relaxed planning rules by town
cramming - residents don't want
any more urban intensification.
Shops - LRA fights
for a balance of shops to keep the High Road and The Broadway vibrant. The Langston Road retail park
has jeopardised our existing
shops' viability. Just see the number of vacant units.
Forest & Green Belt
- LRA actively defends both so we can enjoy them and a separation from Buckhurst Hill, Theydon,
Chigwell & Chingford.
- LRA Cllr Chris Pond works tirelessly for good bus services including to hospitals. He also advocates
'school streets' for safety.
Represents - past election results show residents want
Independent LRA Cllrs to
speak for them. Council services should work. They don’t, so able & local LRA Cllrs are what
you need. Please vote LRA on 6 May.
