2018 Elections



20 April 2018

Please Vote LRA on 3rd May!

Useful information
We want to continue our work for Loughton so please vote for us this year, so we can keep helping us to help you! The positive impact LRA continues to have on Loughton is undeniable – we strive to keep Loughton a good place to live in.

We are the second largest party on the District Council, hold the majority of seats in Loughton Town Council, and hold a seat on the County Council too.

So we are perfectly placed to help and support local people. By consulting with, and listening to, local people, whether through our Cllrs or at our monthly stall at the Farmers’ market, we stay informed of what matters to you.

LRA is active in opposing inappropriate planning applications and in fighting various aspects of the District Council’s Local Plan, including opposing the number of new dwellings proposed in Loughton, and the proposal to build on Jessel Green.
We also pursue the every-day matters – such as potholes, unemptied rubbish bins, crime and anti-social behaviour, leisure facilities – which matter so much to residents.
