It’s always nice for us to pass on a compliment to the district council instead of a complaint, like the one we received this week: “must say that I think that the team that have cut back the bushes have done a really good job this year and have made […]
We’ve have a a problem with the internet tonight at onlineFOCUS. But Ron would like to mention that, following a request from a resident, he’s trying to get the vegetation cut back near the junction of Down Hall Road and Teignmouth Drive. Also, following several requests from residents, for some […]
We’d like to thank the District Council staff for a quick response last week. On Monday evening we emailed them about the overgrown vegetation in Bedloes Avenue Rawreth … they cut it back the next day.
For a few years now, the County Council has had teams of ‘rangers’ to do work such as cutting back vegetation on highways. Not simple grass cutting, but dealing with the sort of foliage that covers up road signs. The County and the District Council are now launching a new […]
We’ve had quite a few complaints about grass and greenery in the last week. – Downhall Park Way ditch – a rectification notice was being sent to the contractors, ISS, on Friday to finish the work. They will have 2 working days to complete it. – A129 in Rawreth, to […]

We know that there’s a lot of unhappiness about the proposed over-development of Rawreth and Hullbridge at the moment, and in the council chamber that feeling is even spreading from the Lib Dem/ Green Party / Rochford Residents corner into some of the Conservative benches. But not all is gloom […]
First of all: The District Council is hoping to having the grass in Sweyne Park cut for hay in the next couple of weeks. If the weather is OK…. Secondly, there’s another event coming up in the park:
There’s been some understandable anger from residents about the state of the grass in the little park near Hartford Close, Rayleigh.

We are unhappy with the progress of the District Council grass cutting this year and we understand the sentiments expressed by people at Rawreth Parish Council last night. Here are some of the things people said (nearly all about grass cutting) “I have never seen such a diabolical job since […]
