There have been two reports by the public on the FixMyStreet website today.
First of all, Sweyne Park:
Bridle path in Sweyne Park very muddy

It has come to my attention that the bridle path in Sweyne Park has started to fall into disrepair, which in the winter weather leads to deep puddles and large sections of mud. The bridle path is used by large numbers of school children walking to school, as well as commuters and leisure users.
Is it possible for some additional gravel to be laid to repair the worst affected areas? The section from Downhall Park Way to Sweyne school rear entrance is particularly bad.
Secondly, on London Hill:
Partial Street Lighting on London Hill, Rayleigh
Reported in the Street lighting category anonymously at 13:22 today
Sent to Essex County Council 3 minutes later
Noted that, in accordance with the partial street lighting project, that street lamp standard No. 8, on the ‘up’ side of London Hill, is switched off on different nights. It seems strange that this has been selected right on a bend whereas one would think that if any lamp had to be switched off it would be better on a straighjt portion of the road, further up, or lower down, the Hill?
