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 […]

Parking Fees reduced!

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 25 February, 2015

    Parking charges to go down under the Accord Administration! With the Lib Dems, I can’t remember a time when we weren’t fighting to make parking fees more reasonable!  Now we have done it – and the Tories voted AGAINST our plans! We pulled this off by being fair – we introduced an overnight parking […]

You may have heard recently in the news, or perhaps from this post of mine from October, that the council is considering developing a small portion of the Westbury Road Car Park along the High Street stretch.  Well, this is still in the investigation stage and no more but, as it came up on the […]

Mr Pothole, Channel 5, #towerhillnaturalpond and me

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 28 August, 2013

I have had a LOT of fun today helping in a national pothole campaign! STV approached me a couple of weeks ago about a documentary called “Pothole Britain” that they were making for Channel 5.  They were particularly interested in the Tower Hill Natural Pond that we launched as Brentwood’s Newest Tourist Attraction – after […]

You won’t fool me Essex County Council!

by Cllr Karen Chilvers on 19 August, 2013

Nope, sorry.  And sorry too to anyone who thinks the “resurfacing signs” mean that they are going to paint the roundabout (above) back in Weald Road. Red herring etc….they will be doing the resurfacing but, you don’t need an actual roundabout there.  You just need the essence of a roundabout.  “Eau de Dougal”  if you […]

Tory controlled @Essex_CC are about as much use as a chocolate teapot. #fact   I’ve decided to stop beating around the bush, or roundabout in this case. Because if you don’t think THIS ROUNDABOUT needs urgent attention then you have lost the plot (or pot, of paint). This is the junction of Weald Road and […]

Over the last few days it has become clear that the Crossrail cables will cause massive disruption for three months across Brentwood and that London Road (therefore most of Brentwood West) will suffer as a result. Unfortunately, the Conservatives couldn’t be bothered to tell us about the detail of this major project as they were […]
