Representation 1862 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Braiswick Residents Association (Mr Robert Waites)

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - North Colchester, NC2: North Station Special Policy Area
Representation: Although a highways issue presumably the responsibility of Essex County Council, the increasing traffic problems at North Station will only get worse with the proposed and already approved new developments. It is unrealistic to suppose that new proposals for sustainable transport will solve this and other traffic issues in Colchester unless very significant resources are committed (probably not likely) and/ or draconian traffic control measures are adopted (probably politically impractical). The only alternative is to reduce the number of new houses being built!
