18/11/2019

Following on from my recent post about the car park problems at Rayleigh train station, I’m pleased to report that NCP has now decided to cancel and refund the PCN’s.

Overdevelopment of our District has caused all sorts of issues for local residents (you know what I mean) and now a fledgling action group in the East of the District ‘The Rochford Supporters’ are drawing a line in the sand and preparing to take the battle to the Government Planning Inspectorate… our Rayleigh Lib Dems […]
