Labour is the only party in Broxbourne standing up for the Green Belt

Cllr Malcolm Aitken and Cllr Neil Harvey report back from Broxbourne Council


Labour’s local councillors on Broxbourne Council continue to be very active in holding the Conservative Council to account and working to protect and develop much needed local services.

Labour Group Leader, Malcolm Aitken, remains resolute in his attempt to protect our green open spaces and has spoken out firmly against the developments at High Leigh and Pound Close. Labour is the only party consistently opposing these developments, whilst the new UKIP member of the council doesn't even bother to turn up to vote on the plans.

Deputy Leader, Neil Harvey, meanwhile, has won a major battle to keep the Household Waste Site open and proposed the Council motion that supported its retention, eventually winning Tory support. Neil is also fighting to improve the Council's recycling rates which are the lowest in Hertfordshire at the moment.


More recently elected Labour Councillor, Carol Bowman, continues to assist Malcolm and Neil and works tirelessly as Chair of the Holdbrook Residents Association in Waltham Cross.

As ever, Malcolm, Neil and Carol continue to hold regular surgeries for local residents in Waltham Cross.

For details of the upcoming sessions and residents meetings get in touch with Neil by email at  neil.h@broxbournelabour.org.uk or by phone on 01992 442758
