Tell Welwyn Hatfield Conservatives - Bin The Bin Tax!

OutofControl.jpgResidents are outraged by Welwyn Hatfield Council’s ludicrous proposals to introduce an additional charge for our brown bin collections. Welwyn Hatfield Labour Party is proud to support residents and campaign against this latest terrible idea by the out of control Conservatives running the Council.

This is not simply an argument between political parties though. It is the people of Welwyn Hatfield versus an Out of Control Tory Council. Many people have contacted us stating that they are not Labour supporters, they just want to oppose this ill thought out action by the Conservative Council.

So far, people in Welwyn Hatfield have taken various actions to make their voices heard:

We can see our Council floundering over this issue. A leaflet costing the best part of £10,000 was rushed out to residents betraying the Conservatives have decided there will be a charge regardless of the result of their amateur attempts to survey public opinion.

The more that people see what is going on, the more they voice their objections, the more the Council surely has to listen


We believe it is wrong for the Conservatives to continue with these measures and they need to realise that they cannot do as they please. They have a responsibility to run our Council on behalf of all residents, not in spite of them. That they launched all of this without first discussing it with all Councillors shows what regard they have for local democracy.

This campaign has highlighted that people still care what happens in their Borough. Although the Tories are trying to convince people this is a “done deal,” enough pressure can force a rethink.  After all, the Tories were elected to represent people.

Let’s make sure that this is not a “done deal.” Sign the petition. Display a poster in your window. Email your Councillors and make your voice heard.

It's time this Council began to listen to residents - they can start by binning the bin tax.
