Election time in Colchester – this is our to do list

with No Comments

The new Colchester Borough Council cabinet needs to hit the ground running immediately after the 5 May election. A vital “preferred options” document is due for publication in June indicating some key decisions, including the location of a new town the size of Witham.

The planning process has clearly lost touch with local people.

Councillors need to insist on a plan based on a vision for growth that the community can understand and support. Four vital things need to be done immediately after 5th May:

  1. Get a grip of the Local Plan process
  2. Show leadership and build consensus
  3. Improve the Local Plan – Infrastructure First
  4. Drop plans for a new town at Marks Tey
