Good to speak to Chris Hossack today who gave us an update on various issues going on in Brentwood Borough including Lock down, The Brentwood Leisure Trust, Affordable “Zero Carbon” Homes, Plans for the Hutton Recreation Area, and how Remembrance Sunday will be different this year.
Unfortunately we experienced gremlins right at the start of the interview with a little distortion for the first 30 seconds or so but the whole interview can be heard here –

Plans for Hutton Recreation Area.
The link to phase 2 can be found here; https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MKHTFMH. This phase of the consultation closes on 20 November 2020. Once the second consultation phase has been completed, an overview will be drawn up that will provide the basis for the new play area.
Finally, this Sunday is Remembrance Sunday. Following government guidance, the traditional Remembrance Day Parade will not go ahead. A private Service of Remembrance with no congregation will take place at St Thomas’s Church. The Royal British Legion Brentwood Branch’s Brian Kitchener has already appealed for people to continue to purchase their poppies and you can see this on our social media together with Deputy Mayor, Cllr Olivia Sanders asking residents to mark the two minute silence on their doorsteps. The service will be livestreamed at St Thomas’, led by The Rev’d Canon Mark North and The Rev’d Matthew Austen, which can be viewed here – https://www.facebook.com/StThomasBrentwood.
