Western Promenade & Swimming Pool – September 2016

Posted on Sep 13, 2016 in Western Promenade & Swimming Pool

Western Promenade I had a meeting with Mike Carran last week, and was accompanied by Jean and Terry. We met at Bateman’s and discussed various aspects of the Promenade, which were a re-iteration of previous discussions and queries, requests and complaints. Mike is going to draw up a plan for a three-year strategy to improve the Western Promenade and a draft of this, will be sent to me by the beginning of October. Next week he is going to visit all the seafront areas in the District with Steve Gove with this purpose in mind, and will endeavour...

Western Promenade – August 2016

Posted on Aug 22, 2016 in Western Promenade & Swimming Pool

Western Promenade – Councillor V Chapman Unfortunately, the pre-season and start of the season, has brought it’s problems and complaints. They have mainly been in connection with the toilets and the seaweed. The weather has been very good on the whole, and thus the Prom., has been very busy. This inevitably means that the toilets are well-used! As from Saturday, 6th August, the toilets are getting three cleans a day (this applies to the other two toilet blocks in the town as well). This will probably revert to two cleans a day when the season...

Western Promenade & Swimming Pool – June 2016

Posted on Aug 22, 2016 in Western Promenade & Swimming Pool

Western Promenade We are still awaiting Playquip to install a new Mobility Whirl and Zip Wire. This has taken longer than we envisaged, but this will be done prior to the school summer holidays. The mounds of earth again have proved more onerous to distribute, due to the number of stones. Terry has tried to get assistance with clearing the stones, but this hasn’t happened and the men are having to pick them out. Once the work is completed, the whole area will be much improved. Had a meeting with Ian Taylor on the Promenade last week, with...

April 2016 – Western Promenade

Posted on Apr 22, 2016 in Western Promenade & Swimming Pool

The remainder of the posts have been installed and the area is looking tidier. More posts will be positioned in due course. Due to inclement weather and the ground being further churned up by foolhardy drivers the gates to the car park are being closed around 4pm, or not opened at all if the weather is extremely bad. The soil, which has been placed on the safe play (and improve the parking area), is to even the ground and prepare it for seasonal use by the Rugby Club. This work has been somewhat hampered by the very heavy rain fall, but is...

Waiting to hear from the developers when the soil can be delivered onto the Prom and also some onto the skate park for BMX track. Councillor Barry will be liaising with the school/young people and Zac to work on this. The teacher from the school intimated that the pupils would like to do some work to improve this, but so far it has not happened. Mobility Whirl – This is being replaced shortly, along with a new zip-wire. The flooding on the Western Promenade is surface water, not sea water, which has been reported to Tendring District Council....

February 2016 – Western Promenade

Posted on Apr 11, 2016 in Western Promenade & Swimming Pool

Work has started on installing the new bollards on the Western Promenade. With regard to the Rugby Club using the ‘safe play area’, Terry and I have spoken about this and are both agreeable to its use. However Terry will make a decision about its usage if due to inclement weather the ground is deemed unsuitable. We are hoping there may be enough soil available to improve the BMX humps.
