Sudbury Councillors support residents’ opposition to telephone mast in green space in Vale Farm, Sudbury Avenue

Sudbury Councillors have been helping residents on Sudbury Avenue to object to proposals for a company called WHP Telecoms to install a 5G telephone mask in some green space on the east side of Vale Farm. Given the green space and the status of Vale Farm in the Sudbury Neighbourhood Plan, the proposal is clearly unsuitable and we will do everything we can to see off this development, as the particular site proposed is clearly unsuitable.

Covid-19 pandemic – statement from Sudbury Labour Councillors

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the way we support you as your local Councillors will unfortunately have to change in the months ahead. This statement sets out what we are going to do to minimise the risk of infection and ensure that we can continue to help every resident in need. We will regularly update it as the situation evolves.

It’s more important than ever that we support the most vulnerable in these difficult times, so we‘ll be stepping up our work in the community – but we need to work in a different way.  To do this, we need your help more than ever to ensure we can support those who need assistance.
