Broxbourne Labour Leader Malcolm Aitken won the seat at the local election on 5 May with 55% of the vote. This was an increase in the Waltham Cross Labour vote from the 42% achieved in 2015.

Malcolm told the Hertfordshire Mercury:

"Everything on the Broxbourne Labour front is on the way up," he told the Mercury following his victory.  We have some strong candidates going forward and no doubt in two years time we will be in a position to take some seats off the Tories.

I would like to thank the people of Waltham Cross for coming out and giving me their support.

Of course to win an election with an increased vote you must have a good team behind you and we have the best team in Broxbourne we have ever had.  The Labour party in Broxbourne is going from strength to strength."

There was also an increase in the Labour share of the vote elsewhere in the Borough.  Selina Norgrove got 28% of the vote in Rosedale and Bury Green; up from 20% in 2015.  Ian Dust received 28% of the vote in Cheshunt South and Theobalds;  up from 26% in 2015.

Unconfirmed reports were received today, 1 April, about a council plan to revolutionise refuse collection.  The indications are that this will involve litter being divided into 14 different categories with each resident receiving 7 highly coloured bins.  Each street will have a different collection schedule and a different colour scheme with the aim of turning refuse collection into street art.  Residents will be able to download an app for £10 which will help them to navigate these schedules. 

An anonymous source said; “if your property value is over £800k you will get the app for free as your time is obviously too valuable to waste on working this out manually.  We had planned to do it this year but the leap year messed up the algorithm. Apart from making the area more beautiful it will help recycling rates although we know that global warming is a load of tree-hugging tosh.  Anyway if it doesn’t work out we will just blame the EU and Gordon Brown as usual”.

The plans for the next stage of the regeneration project, which aims to create an open space in the Roundel, were unveiled by Broxbourne Borough Council  this week. 

Labour Councillor Neil Harvey told the Hertfordshire Mercury:  “..it could be a nice space for people in the community to use and it would be great if they could get more activities and events in the summer..stuff for the kids to make it a fun place for families.

Fellow Councillor Carol Bowman told The Mercury “I, for one, would be very, very pleased to see it happen. I live here it so it’s part of me….I think it will help businesses, but we need to get the type of shops that people want”.

Labour Leader Malcolm Aitken said that it was important that the plans are accompanied by a promotional campaign. “The Council needs to be promoting Waltham Cross so new businesses come into the town”.     Read the article here: http://bit.ly/21LMMDW
