    All those confirmed as currently sleeping rough in Chelmsford have been offered accommodation during the second lockdown period. Lib Dem-led Chelmsford City Council is working with other agencies in Essex to ensure that no-one has to sleep rough.

    The City Council is ensuring that advice and support - not just accommodation - are provided to those who need it at any stage in this process. Staff are helping all confirmed rough sleepers to make a homelessness application to the Council. To ensure that priority is given to this group, districts identified all those known to be sleeping rough in their area on Friday 6 November. In Chelmsford, that was 16 people.

    Bradwell B team recently announced that they received more than 2,000 responses from local residents: a response rate that was 43% higher than at the equivalent consultation for Sizewell C in Suffolk, and an incredible 97% higher than at the equivalent consultation for Hinkley Point C in Somerset. This sort of engagement is fantastic, but are they actually listening to local residents?
