Addiscombe Road Planning Application
23/02/2018 15:17:00......Posted by Vidhi Mohan

Last night the Labour Council approved an application to demolish a lovely detached home on Addiscombe Road an replace it with 2 semi-detached properties, which was completely out of character with the adjoining Whitgift Estate. Despite objections from local residents, this was pushed through by the Labour controlled planning committee. If elected, the Conservatives pledge to listed to residents’ concerns with an open mind before taking any planning decisions. It is important to maintain the unique character of both Park Hill and the Whitgift Estate, and we will never try and cram more housing into these neighbourhoods.

Potholes on Whitgift Estate
21/03/2018 10:12:00.......Posted by Vidhi Mohan


Driving around the Whitgift Estate I am appalled by the poor state of the road surfaces and number of potholes around. Many residents have complained to me about this. I have brought this to the attention of the Council, particularly highlighting Radcliffe Road, Fitzjames Avenue, and Ramnore Avenue. I have asked the Council when they plan to resurface these roads, and will keep residents posted when I hear back. 



Gas Mains Replacement on Whitgift Estate
11/03/2018 15:20:00.......Posted by Vidhi Mohan

I have been infomred that Essex Utilities and Southern Gas network, are to start replacing the gas mains in Sandilands on from 19th March. I understand that residents have been notified. The project is for the replacement of 5,852m of the cast iron gas mains network together with the renewal of the steel service pipes. The replacement material will be polyethylene. The works are due to last 10 weeks.

At some points temporary traffic signals will be required, namely at the junctions with Grimwade Avenue, Harland Avenue, Fitzjames Avenue, there will be advanced notice signs in place and with an estimated duration of one week at each location.

If you have any concerns please get in touch with me:



Friends of Park Hill Park
22/02/2018 10:41:00.......Posted by Vidhi Mohan

Cllr Helen Pollard attended the AGM of the Friends of Park Hill Recreation Ground.  It is amazing to see how much they have achieved in the past few years and she was pleased to have helped by providing some of Fairfield's community budget to fund some of the projects.  

They have some exciting plans for the future including a Peace Garden and a Peace Festival.  

Now that the Parks Master Planning projects is complete Cllr Pollard will arrange a meeting with council officers so we can finally get some progress on improving the toilets in the park, and move forward other improvements.  



Surrey Street Market

Your local councillors spent a morning meeting residents in the area around Surrey Street.  They are very concerned about the proposal to put a nightclub in the basement of the Q Car Park which is just off Surrey Street.  The market stall holders were also concerned as they store their goods, vans and stalls in the basement. 



Lloyd Park Litter

Your local councillors were in Lloyd Park today and was disappointed to see two bins overflowing with rubbish. This seems to be happening more regularly in the last year or so.  They reported this to the council and will put pressure on the current administration to ensure the parks cleaning contractor does its job properly.
