We’ve mentioned before about the dreadful state of Grange Gardens in Rayleigh – and it wasn’t even on the County Council official list of roads to be repaired.
After writing about it on onlineFOCUS, the road was mentioned in the Echo and soon after the County Council began repairing it. It’s looking better now:
What’s interesting about this is that the County Council had recently told a Conservative councillor that the road definitely wouldn’t be repaired because the road defects weren’t deep enough!
This just shows that Lib Dem councillors working locally can indeed get things done!
