Stop the Incinerator

Give local people a say on the expansion of the waste incinerator


Meet Tara Copeland

Hi all, my name is Tara Copeland and I’m running to be your next MP for Leyton and Wanstead!

I'm originally from Canada but have been living in the UK for nearly ten years, five of which have been in London. In 2021 I began playing for Leyton Orient Women’s team and quickly grew to have a strong connection to the local area.

I joined the Liberal Democrats in 2017 due to their strong stance on mental health services, equality and human rights, and our approach to tackling the environmental crisis.

As a passionate environmentalist, I believe that improving air quality is vital. I'm against the expansion of the Edmonton incinerator and extending the operating hours of City Airport. And I want to address the issue of homelessness in our area by campaigning to bring more of Waltham Forest’s 1,500 empty homes back into use.

Leyton and Wanstead are great places to live but our area has been neglected for years by politicians that don’t want to listen to the needs of residents. I am running because I am committed to working hard to fix the issues that matter most to our community.
