by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 9 April, 2016

I have now had a response to the request I put in following the parking survey for increased parking restrictions in Pastoral Way. Not only have they said no, but they have admitted that they have approved far too many properties in the area and that people have nowhere to park. The request for the […]

Conservatives bend the truth once again

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 24 February, 2016

Brentwood in the next 20 years….

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 14 February, 2016

The only way is up!

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 9 May, 2015

Well, I’ve had better election weekends (2007, 2012 and 2014) and I have had worse ones (2008 and, oh goodness, 2011) but, here I still am…fighting for what’s right, fighting for fairness and fighting for Brentwood West residents.
