Keith has represented the communities of Broad Oak and the Hallingburys at Uttlesford District Council for twelve years and is currently Chairman of the District Council.Sitting on the Performance & Audit committee and the council’s Stansted Airport Advisory Panel, his input provides a wider perspective as well as a full understanding of local needs, experience that is essential as Great Canfield joins us as part of the new ward.
Keith is heavily involved in the issues that affect communities.
As a parish councilor and executive of the Uttlesford Association of Local Councils he sits on the Stansted Noise and Track Keeping Working Group, the Stansted Airport Consultative Committee and is chairman of its Environmental Issues Group. These positions have enabled Keith’s knowledge and approach to continue both the monitoring and improvement of the environment around the airport, along with the successful trialling of new procedures to improve flight accuracy and reduce noise.His local influence has proved very successful and has benefitted local residents greatly.
Helping villagers with the complications of modern life, such as planning problems, housing and welfare are of course fundamental to Keith’s role, whilst he has also sourced grants of over £400,000 for community projects in the ward over the last few years.
Make sure the ward of Broad Oak and the Hallingburys with Great Canfield retains its influential voice through Keith Artus and Lesley Wells.
