rayleighrainbow02

Rayleigh Town Council’s Environment Committee met last night. Bruce Smart reports as follows:

1. I suggested that the Rangers team should;
a. clear the pavement of weeds on Hullbridge Road from Ferndale Road to Lubards Farm
b. clear area on Norman Crescent where vegetation has grown
c. clear pavement of weeds on Rawreth Lane from Makro turning to recreation ground
d. clear area around Hambro Parade shops of weeds
e. clear tree grids in Priory Chase outside Pegottys and Barnados. I asked that it be minuted that I was disappointed this had been turned down in 2013 as this is an unadopted road.

2. there was general unhappiness at the poor response of the Highways Dept to reports of potholes etc.

3. Suggestions of areas for 20mph limits have been passed on to Highways. Teignmouth Drive and Exmouth Drive were in this.

4. Parking fees for Saturday’s will be reviewed by R.D.C. on29th July. Town Council opposes introduction of Saturday afternoon charges.

5. Recycling Banks – I asked that Town Council says no to recycling bank in Priory Chase. Reasons being it is a cul de sac and is not used a lot, there are banks within 200 yards at Asda, near a school and not appropriate so close by. I asked for it be minuted that I did not think it right to put a Council facility in a road that it has consistently refused to adopt.

    Admin/Bruce, a neighbour spotted various official looking people scoping out the waste ground between the football pitches and St Nic’s along Priory chase. Were they assessing the area to see if it is suitable for the recycling banks? if ‘yes’ wasn’t that land to be kept free from development for wildlife? (the Taylor Whimpey story I was fed) if ‘no’ do you know why they were there?? Thanks.

    I saw that. I certainly needs something. At the moment traffic coming into the High St from Eastwood Road often blocks the mini roundabout because of the next set of traffic lights, then the lights change but it blocks again because of the pedestrian crossing at the top of Crown Hill. Whoever designed that system to start with was clearly from another planet. It’s something that has needed sorting out for some time now.
