If elected the following policy will inform and guide decisions and campaigns by Chelmsford Labour Party representatives.

Chelmsford is a growing city, but profit has been put above the infrastructure needed to support this growth. From the threadbare bus services to increased traffic around the City Centre, we need sustainable solutions.


  1. The ongoing period of government austerity and it’s effect on councils have ruined our roads, and passed costs on to motorists.
    • Chelmsford has approximately 433 potholes as of January 2022. We will pledge to fix at least 60% of these if a Labour council is elected.


  1. For too long the bus service has been decimated and is increasingly unusable and inaccessible.
    • We will increase the frequency of buses used during peak time, to prevent school children from waiting for prolonged periods for their local bus.
    • We will explore the creation of a publicly owned carbon neutral bus network, using successful models such as Ipswich buses as an example. (more information in Greener in Chelmsford)
    • We will protect the older persons bus pass, concessionary passes and discounts.
    • We will protect the community transport scheme.
    • We will explore the creation of subsidised tickets to encourage use of service during off peak times.


  1. Britain’s crumbling rail network drastically needs investment, and with Chelmsford being one of the busiest rail terminus outside of London we need to see improvement from Greater Anglia on the services it provides.
    • We will lobby Greater Anglia to introduce extra services to reduce crowding at peak times.

Park and Rides

  1. A city thrives when it can have people working in it, reaching it and with a thriving business community. Our Park and Ride system desperately needs expanding.
    • We will encourage the building of a Park and Ride site at West Chelmsford, North East Chelmsford and South Chelmsford.

Cycle Paths

  1. Chelmsford’s cycle paths are disjointed, poorly lit and in many places unsafe. This discourages use of the cycle network, and makes it harder to get Chelmsford moving.
    • We will connect the disjointed cycle network throughout Chelmsford to make cycling a viable option for the good people of Chelmsford.
    • We will work with local businesses and Greater Anglia to expand the cycle parking available at Chelmsford Station.
