The Essex Coast RAMS Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
The Essex Coast Recreational disturbance Avoidance & Mitigation Strategy (RAMS) is an initiative to raise awareness of the birds that feed and breed on the Essex coast, so that people can enjoy the coast and its wildlife without disturbing the birds. It is a partnership of 12 Essex Local Planning Authorities. They are undertaking a consultation between 10th January and 21st February 2020. Further information on RAMS and the survey can be found here - https://consultations.essex.gov.uk/place-services/the-essex-coast-rams-spd/

FOOTPATH AND GRASS VERGE WORKS - THORNDON AVENUE
Residents will be aware that footpath and grass verge works in Thorndon Avenue were undertaken during the summer of 2019. It was intended that the asphalt patchwork carried out was to be covered by a slurry seal during the October half term. Regrettably this did not take place. The Parish Council understands the reason for the delay was because of the electricity works presently taking place in Thorndon Avenue. Essex Highways thought it better to delay the slurry seal and re-seeding of the grass verges until the digging up of the footpath resulting from the new electricity poles being installed would be sensible. It is understood that the slurry seal of the footpath and seeding of the grass verges has been re-scheduled to take place in April 2020.
PLEASE MAKE ALL RESIDENTS AWARE
