In 2017, a wooden pirate ship worth about £10,000 was set on fire at the site in Stour Road, Harwich. Months later a slide was built in its place by Tendring Council, which owns and maintains the site. But the park had its trampoline burnt down by yobs last month. The most recent incident involved hoodlums ripping down eight panels of metal fencing … Read more

New waste service has been “shambolic”.

RESIDENTS in Tendring have been told they should leave missed rubbish out for up to three extra days following “teething problems” with collections.

From: Cllr. Maria Fowler Sent: 07 August 2019 09:06 To: Cllr. Michael Talbot, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Public Spaces Subject: Refuse Collection Service Dear Cllr. Talbot, As shadow to the portfolio holder for the Environment and Public Spaces I was both amazed and furious at your failure to offer a statement to the members of Tendring District Council on the new refuse collection services at last night’s meeting of TDC.

Tory led administration’s failure to tackle the issue of dog fouling

Every TDC councillor serving … Read more
