Blenheim Park Pavilion – update

Wahoo!

Today Southend Council’s Cabinet met and rejected Cllr Longley’s attempt to railroad through the Blenheim Park Pavilion proposal and deferred taking a decision on this until such time as a proper consultation takes place and ward councillors (or at least the majority of ward councillors) agree with the proposal.

I would be delighted to support a Pavilion in the park – if that’s what residents want. Without giving the residents the information to take an informed decision, how can they know?

This Administration couldn’t organise a drink up in a brewery – the Deputy Leader of the Council, Graham Longley, puts a paper to Cabinet to force this through, he takes the day off (I assume to attend the exciting, but sparse, Lib Dem conference), only to find out that in his absence his Leader does his legs in. For once I agree with Cllr Woodley. Just a shame I’ve had to push so hard for this Listening Administration to actually listen!!
