About the author, admin

  • Drove past the development in the grounds of the old “lakehouse” in Downhall Raod yesterday. What ever is being built, 3 story flats ? they look enormous and totally out of keeping with the area. It does not affect me but I feel sorry for the folks in that close, how can such a large building be passed by the planners ?

    • That monster building was given the go ahead on appeal by a planning inspector after we’d voted against it.
      Sometimes you just can’t win can you?

  • Traffic monitoring cables across the road in Rawreth Lane ( just West of the
    Ind Estate / Macro turning – bit late to be assessing the volume of traffic , after they have approved 500 at Rawreth Lane and 500 at Hullbridge, not to mention the temporary ( 10 years !! ) of Construction traffic to and fro…..

    • At a recent ECC briefing they admitted that traffic monitoring had been carried out by developers (or persons unknown) without a paid permit… I wonder if this is authorised monitoring?

  • Just received our voting card for the May ” Essex County Councillor ” elections ,
    I would suggest this is a good opportunity for a protest vote ( if only relating to potholes ) against the present incumbents who represent us , WHY………

    ECC are effectively ( Primary Consultee ) the body that looks the other way and approves countless development plans ( from District Councils ) without regard for the nett impact on the Infrastructure ( highways / hospitals /school etc; ). These people are supposed to be representing the interest of the Towns
    that elect them but are effectively anonymous and oil the wheels for the ruling District Councils.

    Admin – can you provide a list of runners & riders in this event – I would encourage everyone to vote for any but those currently sitting too comfortably in office, thanks – Jim.
