Representation 1978 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Andy Cartmell

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - East Colchester, East Colchester Other Allocations and Policies, Port Lane
Representation: We have huge concerns about these developments coupled with those at 6.9. We agree there is a lot of useful brownfield land, however congestion in Magdalen and Brook Streets is already unacceptably high. Traffic jams and resulting pollution caused by additional development would be intolerable for residents and visitors alike. With reference to comments in 6.8 and DM22, should we really consider losing the Britannia car park yet? Additionally, land in question is over an underground stream (fed by springs), therefore it is questionable how works here could be undertaken safely and with respect to the environment without large difficulties.
