Representation 864 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Colchester Cycling Campaign (William Branhill)

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Strategic Issues and Policies, Infrastructure and Connectivity, SP4: Infrastructure and Connectivity
Representation: We understand that in many European countries, local councils are permitted to take out loans which fund and provide the infrastructure before a development starts; the money is then paid back as property is sold. This seems a far more sensible way than we have in the UK -- perhaps we should press Whitehall to allow us to move to such a system.
