Potholes/Problems in Weeley Heath and Village

 

Please e-mail us photos of all those that you see in the area, with date, and we will upload them onto this page. We also notify Highways, and press for reference numbers. This will hopefully mean they get onto a job sheet at some stage.

 PROBLEM AREAS

12.12.17 - A resident has forwarded the following photographs concerning the newly laid grass beds at the entrance to Ruby's Field in Clacton Road. School parking has now churned all these up into mud baths, and is really unacceptable.

Essex County Council have acknowledged our concerns and are investigating the delay.

5th November 2017 - Weeley Roundabouts - Street Lighting

Despite months and months of contact between Weeley Parish Council and Essex County Council we appear to be no further forward with regard to the outages. The area is very dangerous without sufficient lighting for both motorists and pedestrians, and we are now going to vigorously pursue the matter on behalf of residents with Essex County Council, as this is JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!

5th November 2017 PAVEMENTS AROUND THE VILLAGE AND HEATH

15th November - we have received a schedule of works for the Tendring area. Colchester Road, and Hilltop Crescent are mentioned, but are not yet on the maintenance schedule for 2017/18. <sigh>

5.11.17 WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AROUND THE VILLAGE AT THE STATE OF THE PAVEMENTS AS MANY RESIDENTS ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE BAD CONDITIONS AS, ESPECIALLY WHEN ELDERLY, THESE ARE CREATING QUITE A HAZARD AND ARE GETTING WORSE. WE ARE ADDING OUR VOICE, AND PHOTOGRAPHS, TO THOSE OF THE PARISH COUNCIL, AND TAKING THE MATTER UP WITH ESSEX HIGHWAYS.

Sample of the conditions in Colchester Road.

All the pavements across the Village and Heath are getting into an appalling condition. Pavements are also losing their width considerably due to overgrown verges and hedges, making it impossible for people who need another's support to actually use them.

5th November - UPDATE regarding 'scrapyard' and Weeley station forecourt concerns.

We are very pleased to report that due to WRA pressure the Environmental Agency Anglia region has been investigating the issue for some time. We are advised that the owner of the site now has relevant licences.

The site has been partially cleared in the last fortnight and is work in progress to meet those conditions.  As we understand it, this licence will apply to the existing site but not the station forecourt?

 

9th October 2017 - Station Approach is a disaster area - broken windscreen glass, fences down, it looks a real mess, and it's really difficult for passengers trying to access the platforms.
