    At Chelmsford City Council, the Lib Dem leadership have been keen to help local business recover from the pandemic. So they have worked with the "Click It Local" team to create a local alternative to those global shopping websites.

    Said Council Leader Stephen Robinson, "Hopefully this can help independent businesses who have not set up their own online selling page; it's one of a number of initiatives from the City Council to help Chelmsford businesses."

    County Councillor for Brentwood South, David Kendall, is calling again for a speed camera to be installed on the Hartswood Road, Warley, on the section that runs alongside King George's Park.
    Hartswood Road has a 30mph limit and a Vehicle Activated Speed sign but that is making little difference to the numbers of vehicles that are travelling well in excess of that speed. The road was the scene of a fatality last year and there have been other fatalities further down in the woodland section.

    Brentwood Conservatives released their manifesto yesterday. A manifesto setting out the actions they will take if elected. I thought it was worth a read and recording some thoughts that I have.

    My review the document can be broadly split into five headings.

    1 - Deafening silence on certain matters

    Nothing on bin collections. The golden rule of local politics, if your manifesto is not explicitly clear that you will maintain weekly black bin collections then you are planning to cut weekly bin collections. The conservatives are savvy political operators and know this. The only logical explanation for silence on this matter is that there are unpopular savings plans being hatched. If a Conservative candidate or campaigner knocks on your door perhaps question them on this matter.

    A resident in Brentwood South, living near Running Waters, contacted Liberal Democrats candidate Brenner Munden to report broken paving slabs on the Running Waters footpath.

    Brenner went down to the footpath straight away and what he found were broken and/or raised slabs. It became clear that this was incredibly dangerous as it would be easy for anyone to trip up the raised slabs or step and fall on a cracked and moving piece of concrete. Many elderly residents that use this footpath were unnecessarily taking a risk by walking down the path and potentially falling and hurting themselves because of the path defects. But it soon became clear how impossible it would be pushing a pram or using a wheelchair down the path without get stuck or causing damage.
