Inéz Collier (@inezlc) - Love them. Great to see Epping making an effort. I said that first night they were lit (November 30, 2014)

Pizza Express sign, Epping High Street (November 30, 2014)

Matt Wynes (@wyno70) - looks shocking. Not welcome (November 30, 2014)
Carol Preston (@Carolickles77) - Shame out of place new Pizza Express sign allowed - careful or market town style Epping High street looking like any other! (November 30, 2014)
Amanda (@AJTheodorou) - You certainly can't miss it! (November 30, 2014)
Epping Town Council (@EppingTown) - There's no way that neon sign has got planning permission in the conservation area (November 30, 2014)

Tour de France coming to the Epping Forest district and news that Epping High Street will host sprint section (February 11, 2014)

Michelle Hall (@hallmx) - I'll be taking prime seat at White Hart, Moreton & watching Tour de France come through our beautiful countryside with pleasure! (February 12, 2014)
Peter Charman (@peter_charman)
- It will be a great day despite some disruption. Be positive and get behind the event (February 11, 2014)
Maff (@Maff_Felstead)
- Awesome!! (February 11, 2014)
C Hines (@CatHines)
- Fantastic opportunity for our community! (February 11, 2014)
Samantha Alder (@eppingfarley)

Leigh Clothier (@leighclothier) - Yeah, can't wait! (February 11, 2014)

The issue of dog mess after Ongar Town Council said it had considered banning dogs from Ongar Cemetery
(January 23, 2014)

Samantha Alder (@eppingfarley) - The pavements in Epping are a joke. Don't quite understand how people get away with it (January 23, 2014)

The 'living wall' on the M&S Simply Food store in Epping High Street (November 12, 2013)

Ben Murphy (@benjmurf) - I think it's great. It's these small touches which set Epping apart from other towns (November 13, 2013)
Steven Harding (@stevenwharding)
-
Fantastic - a fine demonstration that contemporary design concepts have their place in conservation areas. Bravo (November 13, 2013)
Russell Alder (@AlderRussell)
- looks awful and pointless! (November 13, 2013)
Jo D (@joannedaniel27)

Jon Whitehouse (@jon_whitehouse) - I am more impressed than I expected to be - hope it's maintained / gardened well in future (November 12, 2013)

New Ongar War Memorial Medical Centre may not open until next April
(September 5, 2013)

Paul Mendel @GOE_Foods)
- It's disgusting! A complete waste of money. This should have all been sorted out prior to the building taking place. Everybody involved should be ashamed. To put neighbours through so much grief just to get this through was disgusting. They must have known about IT issues and doctors contract at consultation stages (September 5, 2013)
Tony Cave (@procoachSS) - Simple, name and shame who is responsible (September 5, 2013)

Plan to switch off street lights between midnight and 5am (September 2, 2013)

dory (@janepotton)
- That's when we need them the most! Crime will soar no doubt. Cars, burglary, muggings etc (September 2, 2013)
JasonK (@jasonpkilby)
- Isn't night time when they're handy? (September 2, 2013)
Bernard Boorman (@camraman40)
- No street lights will improve the amount you can see in the night sky, cutting light pollution will be a bonus (September 2, 2013)
amy (@sexyamy1990)
- It's a stupid idea just to save money (September 2, 2013)
jenni g (@skunksmum) - I'm sure all the burglars will love the idea (September 2, 2013)
S.Batten Carpets ‏(@Stubat73)
- Just to give crime a fair chance (September 2, 2013)

Report into possible new sports centre on Epping Hall site (August 29, 2013)

Johnny P (@famousjohnnyp) - Give me a swimming pool instead of a supermarket any day of the week! (August 30, 2013)
mmjk22 (@mmjk22) -
Absolutely. We need better leisure facilities including a swimming pool. No supermarket (August 29, 2013)
dory (@janepotton)
- Yes please. Definitely the best option. No supermarket please!!!! (August 29, 2013)
Julia Jacobie (@Artofcakes_)
- I think it's a good idea. The existing gym is too small but it needs to have a swimming pool. The 'hole' is already there under the hall (August 29, 2013)

St John's Road redevelopment, Epping - what would you like to see there? (July 12, 2013)

Potholes
(April 11, 2013)

Zuzumi (@zuzumicreative)
- Both my daughter and myself have suffered punctures. And the council don't give a damn! (April 12, 2013)
Melissa L (@Melbel6)
- when is the council going to fix the massive potholes on Abridge Road? What a joke. Very dangerous craters #sortitout #paymytaxfor? (April 11, 2013)
lookbackinongar (@lookbackinongar) - Could not agree more. New #potholes appearing every day even some on the M25 (April 11, 2013)
MissyCupcakes (@MissyCupcakesXx) - totally agree. They are a nightmare! Getting beyond a joke now 
Leona Foster (@Leonafoster62) - totally agree. It's pitiful and accident risk rising each day around Loughton (April 11, 2013)
Sarah Girling (@Girling77) - #Potholes issue is you MUST report! Go on @Essex_CC website & report ASAP. Not enough people report them (April 11, 2013)
Katherine Garner (@mustardseedcook) - agree! Shocking massive potholes all over - will cause punctures and undercarriage damage! Pls deal! (April 11, 2013)
Mark Stroud (@The_Stroud) - I wouldn't want any damage to my undercarriage! So I'm in! (April 11, 2013)
Tom Pearce (@tompearce1) - ...fancy sorting out the hundreds of huge pot holes in the area? #ConstantlySwerving (April 11, 2013)

What do you want to see from the Essex County Council election candidates?
(April 2, 2013)

Beverly (@BeverlyLeLong)
- I'd like them to give a commitment to preserve greenbelt and to build affordable homes on brownfield sites (April 2, 2013)

Could a two-deck car park be a solution to Epping's parking problems? (March 12, 2013)

Beverly (@BeverlyLeLong) - If the West Sumners development goes ahead you could have another 1,000 cars a day fighting for those spaces. You need regular buses (March 12, 2013)
Epping Forest MTB (@EFMTB) -
Living close to Bakers Lane car park, I dislike that (a double-deck car park at Bakers Lane or Cottis Lane) a lot (March 12, 2013)
Anne Symes (@Pansy_Potter46) -
Perhaps the old school site at the top of St Johns Road could be adapted to provide parking while a decision is waiting to be made (March 12, 2013)
Adrian Harrison (@Marketade26) -
A second tier can only help the parking situation! More thought and planning is needed though as parking is a major problem (March 12, 2013)
Caroline Hands (@CMHands) -
More spaces means more people fighting for those spaces. Promote cycling rather than driving (March 12, 2013)
Epping Forest MTB (@EFMTB) -
Second deck at Epping Station would be ideal and being in a natural bowl would be low impact on local residents (March 12, 2013)

Potholes
(February 17, 2013)

Paolo (@paolo_ingrao) -
Local roads in Loughton are dreadful. What are we paying rates for? (February 26, 2013)
Sarah Collett (@Sazel00) -
The ones along the road from M25 to Sainsbury's depot (Waltham Abbey) are really dangerous considering it's a faster road... Ouchie! (February 26, 2013)
Daniel Spillman (@spillman44) -
Potholes - Loughton/Debden Lane! There's a few small ones but there's one massive which no doubt has done a lot of damage (February 26, 2013)
Caroline Hands (@CMHands)
-
Potholes everywhere. Perhaps if the council invested in proper highway maintenance instead of temporary repairs things would improve (February 26, 2013)
Bob Parker (@eppinghammer)
-
Potholes! The roads in and around Epping are the worst I have ever seen and so dangerous especially at night or in the wet (February 26, 2013)
Ambz (@AmbzFluteSolos)
- Potholes are the main issue along with dog owners not cleaning up after their dogs (February 17, 2013)

Parking (February 11, 2013)

The Dress Stall (@TheEppingMarket)
- As a trader on Epping market the parking has now become a major problem since the start of the new year (February 11, 2013)
Georgia Kousoulou (@MissGeorgiakx) -
Surely if the market isn't on parking should become available. My customers (So Glam) always say about the parking, that there is never anywhere to park (February 11, 2013)
Concept Fitness UK (@ConceptFitUK) -
Parking is a serious problem for small independent businesses in Epping. Lack thereof may really drive customers away (February 11, 2013)
Ben Murphy (@benjmurf) -
Epping's town, district and county councillors need to work with TfL to tackle the impact commuter parking is having on our community (February 11, 2013)
Sue Hanks (@ShoeSu)
-
Over the past few weeks I have needed to go into Epping. Had to return home every time as could not park anywhere (February 11, 2013)
Graham Butcher (@GrahamButcher5)
-
A 1,200-dwelling estate is being planned for Broadley Common / Harlow. Imagine the effect the extra traffic will have on Epping (February 12, 2013)
Go Further Cycling (@GoFurtherCyclin) - Encouraging people to ride bikes for local journeys where possible is one solution to parking problems (February 17, 2013)
Adam Brooks (@EssexPR) - Took me 30 minutes driving round Loughton High Road to park yesterday (February 17, 2013)
Deckard (@Deckard72) - Having private companies run it (car parks) is the issue. Seen as a business opportunity, rather than a public facility (February 17, 2013)
Caroline Hands (@CMHands) - I'd just be happy if people stopped using the parent and child parking spaces because they can't drive their big cars (February 17, 2013)
