Welcome to the official website of Saffron Walden Constituency Labour Party. Our CLP stretches from north of Saffron Walden down to the northern edges of Chelmsford in Essex. It includes rural and urban areas, thriving market towns, expanding communities, and Stansted airport.


Our local membership and support has grown tremendously over the last year, and we are delighted to welcome many new and returning members, including many younger people. We have a thriving programme of meetings and social events, with prominent local and national speakers. We campaign and get out to meet local voters on key issues, and listen to everyone’s views.

In 2016 we will be supporting Labour’s Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for Essex, and we are supporting Labour In for Britain to vote to stay in the European Union. The elections to Essex County Council in 2017 will be a vital chance for us to secure more council seats, to fight the unfair and divisive austerity policies forced on us by the Tory-controlled Council and the Tory government.
