New leadership team focuses on issues which matter most to residents.
THE progress made by Essex County Council’s new cabinet towards meeting the authority’s key aims during its first 100 days in office is being celebrated.
Following elections in May, council leader Cllr Kevin Bentley and the Cabinet agreed to focus on the themes of renewal, equality and ambition.
This included helping communities and businesses to not only recover from the Covid-19 pandemic but to thrive, now and in the future.
Significant progress has been made during the past few months to address issues that matter most to residents and business across the county.
This has seen a million square metres of the county’s roads repaired, new roles created for young people, action to address climate change and much more.You can discover more about some of the key activity rolled out in those first 100 days in our video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5wMDK93SCE
Examples of the key activities which have taken place over the first 100 days include:
It’s a pity they didn’t spend any money on Harlow, Potholes, cycle tracks, worst in Essex. Do they know Harlow is in Essex. Does anyone from Essex Council visit Harlow. Maybe someone from the Council could reply.
When will government realise that its not about quoting how many millions are spent on projects. Like any business you can easily spend a million and waste it on red tape... This is not a measurable asset to services. Its the benefit and the impact its had to people! I bet if government were paid in a bonus form for each successful project the numbers would be quite different!
