Think it may be Paul Honeywood, but phoney is a very suitable name for him.

Is that not near Section 106 agreement?

google is your friend for answers..

would take far too long to explain why we retired 10 years early and moved here,
but never regretted doing either.

Paul Honeywood's official email address is phoneywood. It wouldn't be so bad if it was p.honeywood, but there is nothing to seperate the p from the honeywood. 😉

On second thoughts, perhaps we should take the 'P'.

I can't understand why TDC want to change to fortnightly waste collections & impose wheelie bins on residents, a month before an election. Do they really think that their decision won't come back & bite them?

So according to Veolia to keep the current arrangement would cost an extra £400,000, is the concept of Competitive Tendering alien to our Council. They seem quite happy to lash out £800,00 plus on dragging their systems into an integrated digital cloud-based setup because that's always worked so well in the past. But when it comes to basic less 'sexy' things like rubbish the costs must be pared to the bone.

Tis better to be a load of old rubbish than a load of old cobblers perhaps ?

After working with TDC for 6 long years I have learned there techniques in Informing the residents,  Its akin to tell them now or perhaps sooner than later, or if delicate, almost forget to tell them and dont answer difficult questions till the dust has settled....The "titled" brick driveway layer still smirks at me when I see him....But I suppose he does do a good job outside TDC`s cabinet meetings...... My daughter and myself met him and his best buddy (another Jaywick hater  himself - Neil Stock) once in the "Leaders Parlour" In TDC`s Town Hall over matters arising in My Jaywick, both my daughter and I were suited up, to be met with Neil in smart clothes but PHalliday in dirty boots, shorts & T shirt and a good tan,  so yes, at least the bloke does work outside TDC bless him.

I cant find the Gazette piece now but an article read something like - "I hate driving into Jaywick" while Neil was top of the tree some years ago.... How to Instill confidence in your leaders eh......Wonder If he is a "anti or for" wheelie bin man at his Business/ home address? with all those offcuts of textiles & leather gear he makes....

Peter Halliday quit the Conservatives and the council years ago, before Carswell jumped ship.

The 'consultation' was a joke. If you read the responses, more people were in favour of wheelie bins than black bags, but they were not given the option of wheelie bins or the gull proof bags, which work brilliantly. But, and it's a big 'but', the majority were not in favour of fortnightly collections. However, Talbot still included them in the 'for' votes. Also, of the 483 people who responded, 58 opinions were discounted. So, if we assume that the votes that were discounted were actually against this idea, (why else would they have voted?), a dodgy 52% were supposedly in favour, while the no votes & discounted votes were 47.59%. Hardly a resounding vote in favour of this scheme. The decision also did not go before the full council as it was discussed & decided at a cabinet meeting.

So the fortnightly collection and using wheelie bins has been approved.

So why after Talbot's whining about costs and that retaining Veolia and this new system would keep the cost about the same in fact possibly cheaper are they now allocating £1.3million of its New Homes Bonus from the Government to pay towards the waste contract. As usual, Talbot needs to go back to his abacus.

There are a lot of whys, Dave. Why were Veolia guaranteed a 7 year contract, when in 2 years, after Brexit, TDC could put the work out to tender. Why was the scheme not put before the full council? Why were the 'no' votes against fortnightly collections included in the 'yes' votes. Households should all have received a leaflet explaining all the options & asking them for their views. The whole deal smells.

Looks like right stitch up. Remember there are local elections this year. Time for a re think who you vote for.
