|LRA’s Christmas Farmers Market
We're very sorry our suppliers, Essex Farmers Markets, had to cancel the market on 10 December – we were looking forward to seeing residents & visitors, and to carols from some of the Roding Players.
The next regular High Road market will be on Sunday January 14th. More

The Broadway area
The first phase of the long-awaited residents’ parking scheme has taken the commuter pressure off the roads round the Broadway and moved some of it to the surrounding roads, which will be looked at in Phase 2. LRA is pressing for this to go ahead asap – NEPP will look at the parking in roads within about 15 minutes’ walk of Debden station, for action in 2018. LRA Cllrs and others are pressing the District Council to free up parking for Broadway shoppers, currently clogged up by commuters. More
Forest Road/ Smarts Lane area
Residents’ parking is now in operation. Without warning, NEPP has launched a 6-month temporary parking waiver (at £245) for businesses – we will be watching whether the extra parking affects parking for residents. (see LRA’s letter to residents) More
Chigwell Lane roadworks
The works have dragged on and, despite its promises when the Retail Park planning application was approved, the Conservative-led District Council have allowed shops to open before the roadworks are completed. Aldi should open end-November. LRA Cllr Chris Pond has been pressing the County and District Councils for a bus service to the new shops. More
The LRA Plans Group is very concerned about proposals for flats at 60 Traps Hill and a large retirement complex at 13-15A Alderton Hill. A new proposal for 2 Connaught Avenue envisages 5 flats within the existing (enlarged) building.
