A message from Gagan Mohindra, MP for SW Herts

posted 25 Apr 2020, 00:13 by Chorleywood Residents' Association
So much has happened over the last few months that I can’t believe it was little over four months ago I was elected as the Conservative Member of Parliament for South West Hertfordshire. The first few weeks were full on - getting to know my new colleagues, the strange conventions and rules of the Palace of Westminster and of course, getting Brexit done. Then came the Coronavirus pandemic - a hugely difficult time for everyone in this constituency, this country and across the world. But I have been delighted by the response of our local communities including from organisations like the Chorleywood Corona Support Group, based out of St Andrews. Volunteering for #TeamHerts and the NHS myself has been a small way of trying to do my bit too. 

My parliamentary work goes on, albeit remotely. I’ve been elected to the Public Accounts Committee and the 1922 Committee. My constituency casework mailbox hums with the concerns and issues of local residents. My team are working diligently alongside me to do the best we can for the people of South West Hertfordshire. If you’re a constituent the best way to contact me is by email: You can always find up to date information on my website or my Facebook page @GaganMohindraMP.

More specifically with regards to Chorleywood I've been made aware of the delay in the release of the council's Local Plan from May to December and that there is currently a Green Belt review. I will keep abreast of the council's progress and be a critical friend when appropriate. I'm also communicating with David Gold, Director of Public Affairs at the Royal Mail about the the closure of the Post Office. Residents email my office about national issues but I'm committed to local issues - so please get in touch with anything further. 

Stay healthy, stay well, I look forward to meeting many of you when we have overcome this virus and we return to our “normal” way of life.

Best wishes
