Representation 1841 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Braiswick Residents Association (Mr Robert Waites)

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - North Colchester, NC3: North Colchester
Representation: The public open space in Fernlea should be indicated as such in green on the draft plan associated with the residential allocations

Original submission

The proposal map - North Colchester Policies NC1, NC2, NC3 does not indicate in green ("Public Open Space") the open space through which Fernlea runs. This open space, which contains mature and semi-mature trees was provided as part of the original development constructed by Messrs Comben Homes in the early 1980's and presumably is in part a remnant of the original field system. This is the only usable open space on the Fernlea/ Stonecrop development and is an important asset for the residents being used for casual play by small children and having been used in the past for public functions such as 'street' parties. Its importance to the character, quality and environment of the area should be recognised in the Local Plan.
