    Stephen Robinson (Liberal Democrat, Leader of Chelmsford City Council) was asked to write for the Essex Chronicle about why libraries are vital.

    We are aware that parking is becoming more of a problem across the whole of Chelmsford and in particular in our area.

    Residents, road users and businesses are being asked for their views on plans to transform Tindal Square and Chelmsford High Street.

    The proposed scheme, which would be delivered by Chelmsford City Council and Essex County Council, will be on show at two public events at High Chelmer Shopping Centre between 10am - 2pm on Saturday 8 June and 3pm - 7pm on Friday 14 June.

    You can find out more information and share your views by visiting www.essex.gov.uk/tindalsquare between 4 June and 16 July.
