We’re delighted that North Herts District Council has a new Leader, Labour & Co-operative Councillor Martin Stears-Handscomb. Labour has entered Joint Administration with our fellow Councillors in the Lib Dem Group.
Expect a swift shift towards a more open, inclusive local council, a council which listens.
The people of North Herts deserve big improvements in their local council.
We can achieve that, despite deep cuts from above, but only with a more practical, honest approach. There’s no change without real change.
Working together, your local Labour & Co-operative and Liberal Democrats have a shared commitment to deliver much needed action for our community through a joint administration.
You’ll quickly see changes, with a sharp shift towards a more open and cooperative Council, which listens to people – to residents, hard-working staff and elected councillors.
We’re starting as we mean to go on, for example tonight Full Council will hear Extinction Rebellion present their petition as we propose a motion to declare a climate emergency and call for action on this important issue.
We look forward to working together, to strengthen our Council, empower local communities and build strong relationships.
You can read more about the new administration at the Comet.
We commit ourselves to work for all the people of North Hertfordshire, ensuring that we serve all our residents, reaching out to those who all too often miss out. Martin Stears-Handscomb - Leader of North Herts District Council
