Extra Ordinary Full Council Meeting 7.00pm

Resources & Procedures Committee Meeting 7.30pm


Parish Clerk

As the Council moves into new and exciting challenges, providing more services to benefit the community and enhancing existing facilities, the Parish will be facing many changes over the coming months.  Part of these changes will see more support within the office to enable the function to continue more efficiently which will involve a change in the leadership roles.  With this in mind the existing Clerk Kate Smiles will be leaving us to explore new endeavours and exciting opportunities.  Kate has worked for the council for over 10 years and will be known to most residents within the community.   The council would like to wish her every success in the future.

Going forward the council will be creating two new roles of Responsible Finance Officer and Clerk to the Council which was previously a combined role to attain our aspirations to become an accredited Quality Gold Council which demonstrates that a council is at the forefront of best practice and achieves excellence in governance, community leadership and council development


Flu Campaign 2018

We are supporting the national flu campaign encouraging those who are eligible to have their free flu vaccination. This campaign will run from 8 October 2018 to 31 October 2018.

See Latest News or Visit  for more information.


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


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. All poppy knitters are invited to The Old Fire Station in Southend Road at 1.45pm on Sunday 11th November, prior to the service at 2pm, wearing one of their poppies. We will all stand together on the steps behind the memorial. The display will be set up at the memorial and will remain in place for one week so everyone has a chance to visit.

Please support the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal by wearing a knitted poppy, these will be available at the monthly Village Market held at the Parish Hall.


The planters and hanging baskets in Spa Road and Southend Road, which the Parish Council provides and maintains for the community, have been replanted with new autumn displays .

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.
