Representation 1616 on Preferred Options Local Plan by The University of Essex represented by The JTS Partnership LLP (Mr Nick Davey)

Support / Object: SUPPORT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Strategic Issues and Policies, Infrastructure and Connectivity, SP4: Infrastructure and Connectivity
Representation: The University supports improved and enhanced transport links throughout the borough and, in particular, within and around East Colchester, and notes the Council's commitment to producing an Infrastructure Delivery Plan.


Most importantly, the University considers that any proposal for major new development on the east side of Colchester must include a new direct road link (preferably of dual carriageway standard) between the A120 and A133. Without major new infrastructure provision, including new highway links, any significant development on this side of the town will exacerbate existing traffic congestion issues.

Original submission

The University supports improved and enhanced transport links throughout the borough and, in particular, within and around East Colchester, and notes the Council's commitment to producing an Infrastructure Delivery Plan. The University welcomes the proposals to increase rail capacity and to develop innovative public transport solutions. In the latter respect, the University considers that a range of options need to be explored, including improving links from the University Campus and Knowledge Gateway to Colchester North Station.

Most importantly, the University considers that any proposal for major new development on the east side of Colchester must include a new direct road link (preferably of dual carriageway standard) between the A120 and A133.
