You have probably seen this year’s Coleridge local election result, but just in case:
Labour’s Lewis Herbert was re-elected on 22nd May and is busy working for all residents.
The turnout was 38.4% - up from 30.5% turnout last year.
Labour also won control of the City Council from the Liberal Democrats for the first time since 2000, winning 6 seats to reach 25 City Councillors and reducing the Lib Dems to 14 Councillors.
Labour also won the largest share of the city’s Euro-vote that day, helping to re-elect Cambridge resident Richard Howitt as one of the East region’s MEPs. The local Lib Dem MEP lost his seat.
LICHFIELD ROAD DEMOLITION HALTED
One of the first actions of the new Labour council will be to halt plans to demolish and rebuild part of the flats on Lichfield Road. We want this happy community left alone, and residents to know this threat has been lifted.
We will include a fuller account on this in our next ward newsletter, published late June.
