We’re ready for a General Election

We’re holding a general election on 12 December – so we can elect a new Parliament, get Brexit done and let the country move on.

The Home Office has today confirmed the officer recruitment targets for every police force in England and Wales for the first year of the unprecedented drive to increase their ranks by 20,000 over the next three years.

What Boris Johnson’s proposed Brexit deal means

As Boris Johnson has rightly said, we are coming out of the EU on October 31, come what may. MPs promised to respect the result of the referendum. More people voted to leave than have ever voted for any political party in any general election. Parliament has voted to trigger Article 50.

Constituency Report 2017


Whilst the National Result was not what any of us had hoped for, we should remember that the Conservative Party gained its highest share of the vote (42.4%) since 1983.

We are in any case delighted with the outcome in the Braintree constituency.


We are delighted that Diana Garrod was elected as the Braintree District Councillor for Bumpstead Ward. 

Thank you to everyone who helped with her campaign, which saw her elected with 64.5% of the votes. 

Bumpstead Ward - anticipated vacancy

It is anticipated that there will shortly be a vacancy for the Bumpstead Ward on BDC.  The ward comprises the villages of Steeple and Helions Bumpstead, Birdbrook and Sturmer.
