With a new administration in the Town Hall, I look forward to building a good relationship with those now running Havering.
Cllr. Ray Morgan, the new Leader of Havering Council and I have worked together before and we will do so again in the interests of our borough.
Romford is in desperate need of regeneration and as the town’s M.P., I will work with the new leadership of Havering to help make that happen, to restore pride to Romford and continue my campaign to keep Havering a town and country borough.
I have long championed the regeneration of our town centre; now that the Elizabeth Line is open, in this momentous year, it is more important than ever that progress is made to attract investment and appropriate new developments for Romford. Regeneration is vital, but they must match the character of our town and have the preservation of our history at their heart.
Our town of Romford has a unique identity as a part of the traditional country of Essex, as well as being so close to the nation’s capital of London.
Historically, a market town famed for being the go-to place for shoppers from the east of London and from the county of Essex. So let Romford become the bridge between City and County, whilst preserving our countryside, and protecting our heritage as a historic market town!
