Representation 1771 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Colchester Retail Business Association (M Reynolds)

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Central Colchester: Town Centre, TC3: Town Centre Allocations
Representation: Britannia Car Park
Colchester Retail Business Association objects to the proposed development of this car park to housing. There is a reduction of car park spaces serving the town centre with Sheepen Road being closed and the reduction in numbers at Priory Street. Spaces will be reduced further when Vineyard Street is closed to accommodate Vineyard Gate development. We are fearful that this continued reduction in spaces will prevent visitors and tourists to the town, they will simply drive to another town and Colchester's economy will suffer.
