Civic News

REGARDING the "metal tree" that's been palced on the roundabout at Cuckoo Corner (Southend Standard, May 24), I was most surprised to read that councillor Roger Weaver knew nothing about it until it was put into place. Obviously, Mr Weaver does not read his Civic News — but Southend Council chose that publication for its public consultation on the Priory Park/Priory Crescent issue.

As the response to the consultation was said to be "poor", perhaps Mr Weaver is not alone in not reading this publication. Its effectiveness as a means of consultation must therefore be questioned when the executive councillor for planning, transportation and engineering doesn't even read it!
