A PARISH council is urging residents to write letters backing a campaign to control car speeds outside a school.

Bradwell Parish Council has been approached by residents to urge Essex County Council to apply speed restrictions or traffic-calming measures in East End Road.

The main concerns are for children who come out of St Cedd’s Primary School.

A parish spokesman said: “An application needs supporting letters from residents to be successful.

“Please forward any support to the clerk.”
