Hatfield Villages – James Broach
Hatfield Villages Ward
I’ve lived and worked in Hatfield for nearly all my adult life – this is my home and I am proud of it, the people that live here, and our collective determination to make this a better place to live. I live and work in our ward, and I see first hand every day how badly Hatfield is treated compared to other areas in our borough.
I was a councillor in another part of Hatfield from 2015-2021, and I am ready to hit the ground running if elected this year. I previously worked on a number of issues that receive no publicity, such as stopping the conversion of family homes and commercial spaces into HMOs/flats and highlighting the appalling performance of private waste contractors.
When it comes to parking or even ensuring our streets are kept clean – we’re always overlooked. Local people need a council that doesn’t treat Hatfield as second best, and I know Labour will provide Hatfield with the care and respect it deserves.
I will continue working on opposing inappropriate development in our area, and ensuring that the council provides value for money on the ever increasing council tax bills.
