Contact your Councillor
1. Do you have a local issue which you feel strongly about?
2. Do you need more things to do in your area?
3. Are you worried about crime or the environment where you live?
4. Do you feel that your voice isn't being heard?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, why not get in contact with the councillor that represents your part of the District? Find your Councillor on our information map.
Councillors are elected by the people of Tendring to represent your views and to do something about the issues in our local communities that affect us all.
If you feel strongly about an issue, don't just sit there and wait for somebody else to do something about it, get together with your friends and contact your councillor to get things changed for the better.
