Since 2017 Jon Cruddas MP has been fighting alongside residents to resolve numerous issues that have continued to occur down East Hall Lane in Wennington, Rainham. Last week Jon was made aware of a substantial amount of fly tipping which had occurred down East Hall Lane and contacted Havering Council.

Today Jon was provided with a response which states the following: “The Lane is scheduled to be cleared of fly tipping starting from next week, week commencing 27th April 2020, and it is estimated it will take approximately a week to clear.”

Fay Hough, Havering Coordinator for Jon Cruddas MP, attended a meeting on Tuesday 4th December 2018 regarding ongoing issues in Wennington Village. One of the issues raised was the notorious fly tipping happening on a weekly basis down East Hall Lane that has caused huge amounts of stress to residents who use this lane daily. Alongside the issue of fly tipping, concerns were raised regarding the general cleanliness of Wennington. Less than twenty-four hours after the meeting a response was issued.

This week residents of New Cottages, Wennington contacted Jon Cruddas MP regarding parking tickets being issued along Wennington Road. For those who live on Wennington Road, parking options are minimal, so many residents park their cars on land opposite their home. For approximately 25 years, this has never been an issue – until now.

Jon Cruddas MP wrote to Havering Council questioning the sudden change. He also relayed the residents’ concerns that the road was becoming hazardous in places due to alternate parking options.

Jon Cruddas has worked tirelessly to increase the C2C trainlines from the various problems they have had in the past. After an extensive consultation in early 2017, thousands of residents voiced their outrage at the poor service they were receiving from the C2C trainlines. Due to this, Jon met with C2C bosses to discuss the ongoing issues with their services through Rainham.

Back in 2013 the residents of Wennington Village contacted Jon Cruddas MP raising their concerns about proposals to establish a mineral extraction site on land adjacent to Wennington Hall Farm. At the time Jon met with residents and the council; supporting the people of Wennington Jon Cruddas said: “I am firmly against these plans as it is the overwhelming sense from residents that if these plans are given the go ahead that Wennington will change out of all recognition.”

This coming Sunday, 16th March the Wennington Village Association and Jon Cruddas MP will be protesting against plans to establish the Gravel and Mineral Extraction Pitts on 25 hectares of land adjacent to the A1306 opposite the new Links Golf Course which is currently being built.
