Knitted Poppy Project

The Parish Council has been overwhelmed at the response to our Knitted Poppy Appeal. We received over 3000 poppies and a big thank you is given to all those who took part.

The display remained in place for one week so everyone had a chance to visit and was alight with candles in the evening when beacons were lit around the country.


Hockley Public Toilets, Southend Road

 Hockley Parish Council has reached an agreement with Rochford District Council to take over the management of the public toilets in Southend Road after they have been fully refurbished by Rochford District Council.

The Parish Council will keep you informed of progress.


Christmas Lights Street Event

The Parish Council very much regrets that, despite its best efforts, it is not in a position at the present time to complete the necessary formalities for the Christmas Lights Street Event this year. The event has therefore reluctantly been cancelled. We appreciate that this is will be a great disappointment to the community; however, the arrangements for the Christmas lighting displays in Spa Road, Broad Parade and the Christmas Tree in Southend Road will be completed in time for everyone to enjoy over the festive season.  The Children’s Colouring Competition will also be held at the Parish Hall on Saturday November 24th.


Marylands Nature Reserve

 The council's contractors are conducting seasonal maintenance work over the next few weeks at Marylands Nature Reserve.   Markers will be installed on the northern boundary at the reserve to identify the boundary line.   Should you encounter any problems please contact the Parish Council on 01702 207707

What is the timetable for the new Local Plan?

The timetable for preparing the new Local Plan is set out in the Council’s Local Development Scheme (LDS) which was adopted on 17 July 2018. The preparation of an LDS is a statutory requirement which enables local communities and other interested parties to understand the Council’s proposed timetable for preparing the Local Plan, and the main steps involved. The LDS also includes an updated timetable for the delivery of a Joint Strategic Plan (JSP) across South Essex, and the introduction of a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Charging Schedule. For more information, please refer to the latest LDS linked below:
