    Chelmsford's young people are being offered a range of opportunities to keep fit. The City Council offers many different facilities, with admissions policies that are more generous than private sector gyms and has revised its pricing to help young people.

    Most private gyms are only available for those aged 16 years or older. The council's gym at Riverside is, however, more generous and is available to ALL 14 and 15-year olds until 5:30pm on weekdays. After that time, 14 and 15 year olds need to be accompanied by an adult, because that is the busiest time at the gym. The Council serves ALL residents of the district, not just leisure scheme members, and has to accommodate diverse interests, different needs and competing demands for space.

  • parking now
    Article: Dec 8, 2016

    At a meeting of Chelmsford City Council last night (7th December 2016) the Conservative group voted en bloc to reject a Lib Dem calling for better parking enforcement.

    Lib Dem Jude Deakin told that the Council that illegal parking (on double and single yellow lines) poses a significant problem. It:

    • endangers pedestrians (in particular children at school-times), cyclists, and those with limited mobility
    • impedes the flow of transport; and
    • causes expensive damage to footways.
  • Road Repair Equipment
