Good news for local residents, finally after nearly a year, Essex County Council have cleared the ditch that runs along London Road (A1245). Lib Dem Cllr Chris Stanley had spoken to engineers about the problem with overgrown vegetation in the ditch and the flood issues that could be associated with it, last year. Now with the ditch cleared, hopefully the ditch will flow better reducing the flood risk.

Another success story for us Rayleigh Lib Dem’s and local residents.
