Representations on Preferred Options Local Plan - East Colchester Other Allocations and Policies, Magdalen Street Sites

Representation ID: 1981

OBJECT Mr Andy Cartmell

Summary:

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.

OBJECT Mr Mark Lee

Summary:

Magdalen Street's look needs improving but only if traffic can be reduced to access only and not as an artery into the town given the adverse air quality. Indeed a congestion type charge would seem appropriate for any non access through traffic along Brook Street, Magdalen Street and Barrack Street.
