Pastoral Way: Tories say NO & admit over-development

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 […]

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.
