Network Rail and the environment of Southend

Network Rail manages the land and their associated properties beside railway lines in Southend on Sea, Essex . Recently NR participated in structurally violating up to three miles of land. They did this by totally removing and killing all the trees and wildlife shrubberies, on land in and nearby to Southend East Station. Prior to this incident that land was beautified by these plants providing a safe haven for suitable wildlife. In addition they have been reluctant to communicate to a voluntary group about ways of maintaining a stained ceramic archway using community art even though the artist and equipment have been sourced. This petition is to raise to central governments concerns that we as a community have about Network rails obstructive ways of communicating with local communities that it serves. It is difficult to get in contact with any of its Directors or Non Executive Directors or to invite them to address the local council on matters affecting the community. Although they are a private company myself as part of the community of Southend are fed up of having to live with the remote communication tactics used by Network rail executive board for not being more of an organisation that listens to the communities that it serves nor have an approach for liaising with councils about some of itâ
