Representation 1984 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Andy Cartmell

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Strategic Issues and Policies, Infrastructure and Connectivity, SP4: Infrastructure and Connectivity
Representation: Whilst the plan highlights many new schemes for housing and developments, there is little mention of infrastructure to support increased numbers of residents.

Schools are of specific concern for many. Colchester is known across the UK for having some of the best schools. However, most of these are over-subscribed. Given that an aspiration of the local plan is to enhance the future appeal of the town and economic enhancement of the area - provision of adequate, quality schools is required to attract people to the town (especially families). The local plan could emphasise how infrastructure could deliver.
