SAVING CROMWELL ROAD PLAY AREA FROM THE TORIES

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on September 27, 2014

  Published in our September 2014 newsletter: Cllr Karen Chilvers says: “Many skeletons have fallen out of the cupboards since the Lib Dem-led Accord administration took control and one, that didn’t exactly surprise me, was that the Tories were planning to dispose of this popular children’s play area.

Homesteads – the stress continues

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on

  Here we go again.   No sooner was the appeal against the decision made last November dropped, a new application went in.  This time, it is for “outline permission” so, basically the same thing as before but by stealth. We are waiting for an officer recommendation on this but residents can be assured that […]

Ongar Road crossing

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on

  Not in Brentwood West, but not so far away in the town centre, Cllr James Sapwell (@jsapwell) is campaigning to have the promised crossing built for the new(ish) apartments for the elderly. From me, my old Nan has just moved in to Brentwood West and I am acutely aware of how important it is […]

UPDATE: Tower Hill/Weald Road and “Shame on Cllr Chilvers”

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on September 17, 2014

Well, that told me for daring to bring resident concerns to committee for debate and discussion. For over four years, I have tried to get maintenance for the Tower Hill/Weald Road alleyway.  I’ve even cleared it myself with former Cllr Nigel Clarke, and Cllr John Newberry has been down there to tidy it up recently.
