We will try to do drop-in coffee sessions at the Kings Arms (tbc after Committee meeting 5 Sep)
- We have attended all the relevant local Plan, scrutiny and Full Council meetings at Braintree & Colchester.
- We have briefed consultants as follows to assist with our consultation response: planning, transport, air quality, sustainability appraisal and a barrister. The response will address the problems with the garden communities plan as a whole, not just West Tey. Our response will also include papers addressing the amendments proposed by the authorities, viablity, employment, community engagement, delivery vehicles proposed and more.
- We are fund-raising. The advisers above do not come cheap! Donate to CAUSE
