A good meeting last night/late afternoon with the Leader of Essex County Council, Peter Martin, at County Hall in Chelmsford.

Peter is one of the Good Guys in my books, a County Councillor who has risen to the top and is not afraid to get his hands dirty, having been to Harlow to help out in election campaigns and knocked on doors alongside myself and Rob Halfon. He knows and understands Harlow and that makes our conversation even more productive.

We are able to chat with excitement about the new LEP and how to make it work best going forward, and we are also able spend some time talking about how councils can think out of the box and share more services, something you will know I am very keen on.

I look forward to working closer with Essex over the coming years.
