Councillor questions park tidiness
7:20am Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
A CONSERVATIVE councillor has questioned the untidy state of Thurrock’s parks and open spaces.
Shane Hebb, a Homesteads ward councillor, said: “Something I have been thinking recently is the difference in quality of our parks’ play equipment and cleanliness versus other boroughs in Essex.
“Firstly the hygiene. Wat Tyler and Brentwood Park were parks I visted recently and the first thing I noticed was the absence of litter all over the play areas and graffiti.
“Secondly, despite hard work by certain council officers, our play equipment sometimes feels slightly inferior.
“Is it money stopping our parks being like that of neighbours like Brentwood and Havering?
“Are we allocating resources effectively and spending money wisely? Maybe not.”
