Another Canvassing Question

One Mum asked Chris Black why there was only one seat at the Grove open space in Rayleigh, and why there wasn’t more play equipment there.

The answer we got from the District Council was this:

  • More seats tend to cause more nuisance problems for neighbours, so an extra seat would have to be very carefully considered.
  • As for the play equipment, the District Council has a limited budget and has already spent money twice there in recent years.
  • So to get more play equipment there, the Lib Dems (or the Mums and Dads!) need to persuade either the District Council or Rayleigh Town Council to spend extra money on play equipment.
