I still sent another email, this time to the planning manager as per the letter from Dan Poulter. It can't do any harm, at least it shows the council we are still determined to stop the planning application going through.

I cannot see that the smaller less powerful motor can be as effective as the upright corded version , they are similar money too , we quite fancy one to just hoover up the odd thing here and there rather than using it to replace an upright ... We will ... [ more ]
I can only say that, in my experience, the Gtech is more effective than the corded vacuums, including the dyson. I have quite a big house, and a cat, and it is the only vacuum I use now, as it does not give me backache.

I spoke with a District councillor whose area includes Claydon and Barham, sorry if you were confused.

I have since learned that the residents along the main part of Ed Gdns received notification in the form of a letter but as they have driveways, it didn't really apply to them.  Those of us in the bungalows to whom it does apply, got nothing!

Well i don't see the point the speed limit is not enforced now how will reducing it help the same people will still be speeding.why not spend the money on enforcing the speed limit word would soon spread and people will slow down.

Introducing a 20mph speed limit is a councils idea of improving road safety on the cheap. As the poster above says , the 30mph limit is not enforced now and the same will be when its 20mph . Why this area anyway ? Whats the reasoning? But then you have ... [ more ]
