Council want action to stop fire bugs

AN angry council chairman has called for a derelict building to be cleaned up following a fire.

Two fire crews from Dovercourt fire station were called to former office block Parkeston House in Garland Road after a number of passers-by saw smoke coming from the building at around 4pm on Saturday.

Officers put out the blaze in just over two hours but Ramsey and Parkeston Parish Council chairman George Elmer believes action should be taken at the grot spot.

“Last Thursday we had a very good meeting of the council with Nick Turner and Tim Clarke from Tendring Council,” he said.

“Mr Turner talked about the state of the roads and the rubbish lying close to the fence and Tim Clarke is street scenes manager and we discussed the state of Parkeston House.

“The public are up in arms, as is the parish council.

“We are an area where cruise ships come in and they walk up the road and see this.

“It has been like it for two and a half years – enough is enough.”
