The vision, commitment and experience to win

Stephen Robinson

Back Stephen Robinson to be your MP

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I was selected in December 2006 to be the Liberal Democrat candidate for Chelmsford at the next General Election. You will find more about Chelmsford Lib Dems on that website: http://chelmsford-libdems.org.uk/

In 11 years as a councillor, I helped many people and made a difference on the council. Now I want to do the same as your MP.

Becoming a parent has made me more committed than ever to improving education and ensuring we protect the environment for our children's future.

Vision, Commitment and Experience

So my vision for Chelmsford is for it to be one of the most sustainable and attractive places, in a more liberal and democratic Britain. As your Lib Dem MP I would work with what will be a Liberal Democrat-run council to achieve this.

My commitment to achieving this is total and my experience makes me well-placed to win. On these pages you will be able to read more about the above.

If you have any questions that you would like to ask or want more information about anything here, please do contact me via the contacts page. If there is anything not covered here, and you think it should be, let me know and I will do my best to add it.

If I can count on your support, you can count on me to make a real difference for Chelmsford.

Thank you,

    A halt has been called on plans to sell most of the site of the former St Peter's college in north west Chelmsford. Essex County Council has agreed that part of the site will be given to Thriftwood special academy and debate is now starting about the rest of the site.

    An intervention by the County Councillors for the area, Lib Dems Stephen Robinson and Jude Deakin, has stopped the site being put up for sale immediately.

    Said Cllr Robinson, "During the recent by-election I said I would campaign for community facilities on the site. So when Jude Deakin and I heard that the Council was thinking about selling the site, we met the Cabinet member for Finance.

    "I am delighted that he agreed to give local people time to come forwards with proposals for what the community would like to see on the site in future. We will now have these discussions via the North West Chelmsford Action Group."
