Tendring is a local government district found in the extreme north east corner of the ceremonial county of Essex, in the south east of England. The district stretches from the River Stour in the north, to the coast and the River Colne in the south, with the coast to the east and the town of Colchester to the west.
The district which is sometimes called the ‘Tendring Peninsula’ has a number of towns within its boundaries which include Clacton on Sea, Frinton-on-Sea, Walton-on-the-Naze, Brightlingsea and Harwich. The headquarters of the district council are found in the principal settlement of Clacton on Sea which is also the largest town by population, with more than 50,000 residents calling it home.
The Creation Of The Tendring District
As a local government district, Tendring has been in existence for a little over 40 years having been officially formed on the 1st April 1974. This formation was one of a huge raft of changes to the local government’s structure brought about all over the country by the passage of the 1972 Local Government Act.
In the case of Tendring, the act created the new district from a merger of the former borough of Harwich, with Brightlingsea, Clacton and Frinton and Walton urban districts, and Tendring Rural District. The newly formed district was then named Tendring which as well as being the name of a small village in the centre of the district was also the moniker applied to an ancient Hundred in the region.
Population And Accidents In Tendring
According to the latest population statistics, the district of Tendring is home to around 138,000 permanent residents at a population density of close to 1,100 per square mile. This suggests as a result that the district will be a busy enough one then, to see its fair share of accidents and injuries.
The potential frequency with which these accidents and injuries may occur, therefore, is what explains why we will now briefly turn our attention toward the issues surrounding making a Tendring accident claim.
Making A Tendring Accident Claim
When it comes to discussing Tendring accident claim proceedings, the most crucial thing for potential claimants to understand is when the entitlement to make a claim may actually exist. This is if and when an individual has suffered an injury which was demonstrably someone else’s fault and they wish to seek compensation for the physical, emotional and financial pain they have suffered.
