Jaywick itself comprises of four main areas, Grasslands, Brooklands, the Village and the Tudor Estate. Brooklands and Grasslands have perhaps been the most deprived and forgotten areas, having the barest of amenities, despite this the vast majority of the people who live there love it. The village has slightly more amenities in the way of shops and Post Office and again most of the people that live there, would not wish to live anywhere else. In all three cases many of the houses were amongst the worst in Europe. But recent works carried out by Ice Energy to over 500 properties have brought those properties upto an energy saving standard that would shame most modern builds, with state of the art insulation, uPVC double glazing and Air Source Heat Pumps. Unfortunately for various reasons most of which seem to be due to Government miscalculation and general mismanagement. The works on many properties were left unfinished.
Finally we come to the Tudor Estate, or West Clacton as the Estate Agents prefer to call it, to avoid the stigma that they always attached to the name Jaywick.

Whilst not wishing to sound like Victor Meldrew, the older I get the more convinced I am that common sense and decency have been eroded just as fast as technology has improved. Two things today particularly irritated me, the first … Continue reading →

Given your penchant and apparent love of large scale housing development, when can we expect to see the first 1,000 homes being built close to Lawford, Mistley or Little Bentley or maybe even Lawford. My guess is never, as this … Continue reading →
Following on my previous post about this ludicrous proposal, Proposed Jaywick Lane Development, I notice there has been an on going discussion about the scheme on STREETLIFE . Definitely worth a look if you are interested in how the face of … Continue reading →
Well its only taken 40 plus years, but the self congratulatory bunch in County Hall are slapping themselves on the back for spending £ 5 million on repairing roads and drainage in Jaywick, that had it been done 20 years … Continue reading →
