2 Hours on What Needs to Change at Rochford Council

July 14, 2007 by · Leave a Comment 

Tory Councillor Heather Glynn said “how sad it was that only 3 (of the 9) Executive Councillors attended.” Those absent included the Leader and Deputy Leader of the Council.

All Councillors were invited to attend the initial feedback.  Important because it was fresh with direct explanation from the whole Review Team.  Apart from many staff only 7 Councillors attended.  Tory Executive Councillors Seagers, Starke and Stansby.  Ordinary Councillors Humphreys, Glynn and Cottis for the Conservatives and myself, John Mason an Independent representing Rochford Residents.   

Update on Hawkwell – Littter,Litter,Litter

June 16, 2007 by · Leave a Comment 

The Hawkwell Parade of shops is private land and the litter is the responsibility of the shop keepers not Rochford District Council.  So we are grateful to Myra Weir for clearing this up for them.  I think that they should pay for this service.

SkateBoard Facility – Hawkwell Playing Fields

Dear Councillor Mason,

I have been requested by Graham Woolhouse to provide you with an update on this issue.  I can confirm that I have spoken with Myra Weir personally and ascertained that she currently collects litter in this area on Saturdays and Sundays. The main issues that she is concerned about appears to be broken glass.  This is said to be worst on Saturdays mornings rather than Sundays. As you know our normal litter collection service for this area is only provided between Monday and Friday at present.

Rochford District Council is Weak – Audit Commission

May 20, 2007 by · Leave a Comment 

The Audit Commission assesses the performance of councils and the services that they provide for local people.

The way that Rochford District Council is run and the delivery of services has been assessed as weak (on the scale excellent / good / fair / weak / poor).

Quote: Its priorities are not based on a clear understanding of the needs of local people.
Rochford District Residents still does not believe that this is being dealt with.

Did the needs of local people include as priorities the early introduction of a new political structure or the increase in members allowances?

Rochford District Residents is Independent

It has been pointed out to us that Hawkwell Residents’ Association say on their web site and in their newsletter that “The Association has been contacted by a number of members who are confused as to whether the Association is linked in some way to Rochford Residents. The Association has no links to this political party.”

I think that now is the time to clear some air.

Rochford District Residents is a registered local political party and we say that upfront on this page. We have two Councillors. Christine Mason has a seat on Hawkwell Parish Council and John has a seat on both Rochford District Council and Hawkwell District Council.

Barrier at the end of Hawkwell Park Drive

May 20, 2006 by · Leave a Comment 

This was discussed at Hawkwell Parish Council and passed back to John.  With the Police and RDC it has now been decided to resolve the issue with a new barrier and fencing.

While I was out meeting people during the election the feedback I got was that the recent changes had been for the worse because the motor cyclists just roar down the road now and straight onto Clements Hall.

When I contacted RDC they said that this had been at the request of The Hawkwell Residents’ Association residents to let prams through.
