River Crouch Celebrations


Rochford District Council is delighted to announce a celebratory programme of activities along the north and south banks of the River Crouch in Essex. Over the next few months, people who live, work or visit this part of Essex are invited to take part and to help us celebrate this unique part of Essex and explore the River’s past, present and future.


Since last summer, Rochford District Council in partnership with Kinetika – a leading arts organisation, based in Essex - has been developing plans and gathering support for the River Crouch Celebrations. We have explored both sides of the River through river crossings, guided walks, meetings and attending local events. Along every step of our way we have met a host of people who have helped the project take shape and gather momentum – sailors, teachers, writers, ‘do-ers’, artists, enthusiasts, community leaders, walkers, historians and volunteers - to name a few!

Essex Energy Switch


Earlier this year thousands of households and businesses signed up to participate in the Essex Energy Switch. It helped many people reduce their gas and electricity bills at a time of rising energy prices – with an average saving of £200 per year. We are now offering residents another chance to make sizable savings on their gas and electricity bills.

Residents have from 3rd December 2014 until 2nd February 2015 to register their interest (without any obligation) at www.essex.gov.uk/energyswitch. It is a completely free, easy, safe and secure way to cut their energy bill without wasting valuable time endlessly comparing prices on comparison sites.

Rochford District Council - Pay for parking by mobile phone

Rochford District Council is currently promoting its pay by mobile phone facility, which was introduced last year at the same time the new pay and display machines where installed in all the car parks.

There are now various options for paying to park in the Council’s pay and display car parks, motorists can pay at the machines by using cash, credit or debit card or by wave and pay.  There is a further option to pay by mobile phone, it is very quick and easy to use when paying to park.

The added benefits for using this option is that the motorist needs no cash or credit card to pay (once they have registered with Metric Mobile).  There is no ticket to  display on the vehicle and a text receipt will be sent to confirm the transaction has been accepted.  A text reminder in also sent when the parking session is due to expire and gives the motorist the option of extending their parking session, this is ideal  if delayed at the Doctors or hairdressers etc. as there is no need to return to the car to purchase a ticket.
