The Dome & Hockley Park

To the east of the main village centre of Hullbridge are two park home sites.  The Dome and Hockley Park.

Many of the residents feel cut off living here, with a poor bus service to Rayleigh and Southend and no footpath along the side of the road to let residents walk to the village centre in safety.  There used to be a footpath to Hullbridge along the sea wall but this was breached a few years ago and it has not been possible, so far, to get it reinstated.  To walk to Hullbridge, two and a half miles to the shops in Ferry Road, means residents taking their lives in their hands dodging traffic as much of the way is along country lanes with speeding cars and lorries.

We will be looking to creating a new combined path and cycle-way to link The Dome and Hockley Park with the main centre of Hullbridge and will also revisit the sea wall path to investigate how we can get that reinstated.

In addition we will be making it a priority to improve the bus service to the two Park Home sites and will be campaigning to get one of the number 20 buses, which run each hour from Hullbridge to Southend via Rayleigh, to go to Southend via the Ashingdon Road allowing an hourly bus service for residents at The Dome & Hockley Park.
