Whilst we accept there needs to be additional housing it must go hand in hand with a commensurate increase in vital amenities

Original submission

We understand that the preferred option for development lies between Whitnells industrial area & the village Community Centre & also, possibly, to the junction of St Margarets Cross. This whole area is opposite the school & is already very busy with plant & equipment leaving Whitnells together with considerable school traffic. At school start & finishing times the road is very congested with parked cars & would pose a further danger to children entering & leaving the school if there was further housing opposite. Primarily, this is the reason we feel this development should be reconsidered.

On a more general point, the development in the Colchester area is putting considerable strain on the infrastructure of the town. Schools, hospitals & doctors surgeries are all feeling the strain due to the increase in population of Colchester & the surrounding villages over the past years. Whilst we accept there needs to be additional housing it must go hand in hand with a commensurate increase in vital amenities
