Vote Labour at the Local Elections
Thursday 6 May 2021
This election is your chance to choose a positive plan for Welwyn Hatfield’s future.
Labour will keep fighting to save the QE2 Urgent Care Centre and local emergency services that are under attack by the Tories and Lib Dems, and work to deliver the infrastructure that Welwyn Hatfield badly needs.
The Council has a role to play in tackling anti-social behaviour, Labour will work with the community to find the right solutions. We can all remember council-run services like West One and the Forum, but there’s nothing like that anymore. A Labour led council will invest in our community.
Labour is committed to joining the vast majority of councils across the Country in having elections every four years instead of every year. This will save you money, time and gives the Council a four year term to get on with the job.

Labour will work with the police to get a grip on anti-social behaviour
We won’t accept areas of our borough where residents and businesses are affected by anti social behaviour. We won’t support a government that has cut our police service to the point where they can’t deal with rising violent crime. A Labour Council will work with the Police to get a grip on anti social behaviour and work harder to direct those involved onto a better path.
Labour will use council powers ignored by the Tories to protect local businesses
Welwyn Hatfield is home to a number of large businesses and we will work hard to make sure this Council does more to support small to medium enterprises too. Our Borough cannot be a place to work, play and live if we continue to allow business premises to be turned into housing. Powers that the current Tory Council have failed to use will be applied to protect valuable employment space.
Labour will introduce higher recycling targets, tackle litter and plant more trees
Under the Conservatives, Welwyn Hatfields recycling rates have plummeted, litter is out of control and more time is spent hacking down trees than planting them. Labour will introduce higher recycling targets, commit to a considerable planting schedule and tackle the scourge of litter in ALL areas of Welwyn Hatfield.
Labour will demand funding and infrastructure to support our communities
We believe current and future generations deserve decent homes to live in. But decent places tp live cannot be created without the infrastructure required to support our communities. Public Services and basic amenities cannot continue be an afterthought or worse, set aside entirely to serve the wealth of vested interests. If the Government continue to demand housebuilding, a Labour Council will demand that they fund the services needed alongside them.
Making a difference for local people
Labour will replicate the success of Labour controlled Hatfield Town Council which has frozen Council Tax and introduced new services
Under Labour, Hatfield Town Council has a proud record of delivering for residents – freezing Council Tax, while the Tory led borough Council, County Council and Police Crime Commissioner increase it; upgrading local community facilities and focusing on our community with the Hatfield Firework display and free Hatfield Music Festival.
We’re your voice on the Council
Just imagine what we could do together
