Local Netteswell Councillors’ Report A number of issues Edna Stevens, Waida Forman, Mike Danvers

Street Lighting. As residents will have noticed our street lights remain on all night once again. The vast majority wanted this, and many households signed the petition to get the lights restored. Nevertheless there are those who preferred that the lights remain off. In the end the Council thought it best to put money aside for the next four years and pay Essex to put the lights on. Many feel safer at night and night workers returning home prefer them on.

The Freedom Parade was a great success with a great turn out of Harlow residents greeting the

Royal Anglian Regiment through the streets of Harlow and the town centre. The previous day they had been in Norwich and commented on Harlow people's warm reception. Rented housing in Harlow is become more complex. Council housing rents will fall by 1% next

year, unless the household income is over £30,000. For these households, the government has directed their rents must go up to market levels although the exact level of increase is yet to be determined. The Council will be opening its first new homes for many years, but with the change in government policy it may be difficult in the future to build more. There are changes in the local area for policing and the cuts will also affect the opening of Harlow

police station. Unfortunately it will now only open between 9am to 5 pm Monday to Saturday. Finally Pets Corner has reopened and although some building work to Spurriers is ongoing, this

is a real improvement and children will be able to do much more when visiting the centre. Local councillors are always interested in hearing from you and our contact details can be found

below. We are normally always out and about in Netteswell on Sunday mornings. So if you hear that knock on the door, perhaps be prepared to give us a few minutes of your time if you have issues or concerns as it helps us do our job more effectively.

Surgeries: Local councillors always like to hear from you and will do their best to make the community work well. See us at the Stow Library on the first Saturday of each month:

Surgeries Saturday’s 10 - 11am: December 5th and February 6th (no surgery in January). Please note due to Local Council elections, the next surgery will be in June

Door to Door Visiting Over the next couple of year’s members of Freshwaters

Fellowship will be calling on those within the Netteswell ward to intro-duce ourselves, to answer any questions you may have about the church or our relationship with God, to offer to pray for you and to offer a free information pack. Our aim is to bless you, and not to bother you. We will

respect all front door notices which ask people not to call and of course we will leave you in peace if you are not happy to speak to us. If you do not want us to call, or on the other hand would like us to call on you sooner, rather than later, then let us know by emailing or calling 01279 888 110, and we will make a note and respect your wishes.
