Thousands to spend on popular footpath

First published in News by

A FOOTPATH which was illegally built on is set to have tens of thousands of pounds spent on it.

The exact figure Tendring Council has ring fenced for The Hangings in Dovercourt has been revealed as £58,800.

The authority negotiated the amount with developer GVA Grimley which extended garden boundaries onto the footpath without permission.

Harwich Friends of the Earth campaigned to save The Hangings and successfully secured any money made to be spent on the footpath.

It's brilliant that money is being spent on the hangings thanks to Harwich friends of the earth. As a regular cyclist using the hangings I hope that all the effort put into improvements are not vandalised or ruined. To date I have seen the new wooden rubbish bin at the top end of the hangings burnt to a crisp, the dogs mess bin gone missing, a mattress dumped along with copious amounts of beer tins, broken glass, supermarket trolleys dumped, litter dropped etc. I wish people had more respect for their environment, and other people. Maybe it's to do with the quality of people we now have living in Harwich..
