OBJECT Ms Megan Wood

Summary:

We live directly opposed this piece of land which we believed to be public open space and would not be changed to residential use. It should not be built on and we fail to even understand that there be enough room for a development there. It would change the entrance to the whole estate and would not be welcome. Trees please!

Representation ID: 1990

OBJECT Mr Oliver Anthony

Summary:

This area is clearly unsuitable for housing, it would not accommodate 28 caravans, let alone homes with amenities! Not to mention the fact that current residents would be massively overlooked and have no outdoor space to enjoy.

There is plenty of land in the area which these properties can be built, why build them on top of current dwellings?

The other main issue here is this land has been reclassified without public consultation along with a host of admin errors and 'oversights' from the council. The application is currently being reviewed by the secretary of state.

Representation ID: 1818

OBJECT Miss Sue Richardson

Summary:

The new dwellings proposed are not in keeping with the surrounding area and will dwarf those closest to them.

OBJECT mark rusted

Summary:

This part of SR6 was always shown as two houses to match the phase one houses. Secondly this application is regarding provision for one car per household (plots 13-28) is not anywhere close to being sufficient. This is evident throughout the rest of this new development where people are now parking on the pavement or in other streets due to the lack of consideration in the planning stage around parking. Taking away more landscaped green space to add extra parking I'd not acceptable either. My final objection is to do with the loss of open space. It will feel claustrophobic.

OBJECT Mr Steve King

Summary:

Amongst an alarming number of issues it's clear that CBC were not transparent with SPC or residents regarding their intentions on this parcel of land, in fact they appeared to purposefully hide the fact that they had overlooked the open space when granting the approval of the masterplan. CBC delayed plans from coming to the surface to avoid challenge, now we find this reserved matters application, already presented to the planning committee for approval on the 6th September is part of the Local Plan 2017 - 2032 Preferred Options. This open space can be retained
as per barrister Clay

OBJECT Mr Keith Williams

Summary:

The site is open space, and correct procedures have not been followed to revise this. The government's pepper potting policy has been ignored. The planning application152817 may be called in by the Secretary of State, so revise the local plan under these circumstances would surely be in contempt of the SoS office while it is still a matter for their consideration

Representation ID: 1360

OBJECT Mrs Samantha Kensdale

Summary:

I object to the proposed planning application on the entrance to Lakelands, Stanway. The proposed dwellings will be overbearing and overdeveloped on the highest piece of land on the lakelands estate. Affordable homes should be integrated amongst the estate.. These buildings will have a detrimental effect on the current surrounding properties resulting in lack of light.. Lack of provision for parking is going to create congestion in the surrounding roads creating a serious hazard for both drivers and pedestrians. Colchester Borough Council should NOT be permitted to change this open space to residential without following the correct procedures.

OBJECT Mrs Katy Adams

Summary:

CBC were not transparent with SPC or residents regarding their intentions on this parcel of land, in fact they appeared to purposefully hide the fact that they had overlooked the open space when granting the approval of the masterplan. It seems as though CBC delayed plans from coming to the surface to avoid challenge, now we find this reserved matters application, already presented to the planning committee for approval on the 6th September is part of the Local Plan 2017 - 2032 Preferred Options.

This open space can be retained as confirmed by barrister Jonathan Clay - opinion dated 20/08/16

Representation ID: 1120

OBJECT Mr Derek Trevor Ireland

Summary:

This land should remain as public open space. Creation of proposed dwellings will produce a canyon of properties on the entrance to Church Lane. Developers should not be allowed to dump their obligation for social housing on land that would not be economic for their preferred development.

OBJECT Mr Neil Marking

Summary:

I think that it is morally corrupt that the council can ignore legally binding agreements for open residential space and then change it without public knowledge. The council is there to represent the people which you are clearly not. If this goes ahead then shame on you all.

Representation ID: 985

OBJECT Mrs Karrianne Marking

Summary:

I object in the strongest sense to the landlord being changed to allow residential use. It is public open space. It should not be built on. Where are the trees/shrubs that the council were supposed to plant?
Open space should be safe from concrete, especially when they could build within an existing building site a stones throw away. Why build here? Why take away an established plot of land that is used by numerous ages?
This surely cannot go ahead.

Representation ID: 968

OBJECT Mr Tovey

Summary:

This open space can be retained as confirmed by barrister Jonathan Clay opinion dated 20/08/16 and the council should retain it in line with policy. They are choosing to let it be developed because it makes the planning departments life easier.

SUPPORT La Ronde Wright Ltd (Mrs Nicole Wright)

Summary:

We act for Flagship Housing Group Limited who have an interest in the land.

The site benefits from outline consent for residential use and proposals prepared by Flagship Housing Group Limited demonstrate that 28 units could be accommodated on the site. The landowners have confirmed that the site is available and deliverable.


It is in a highly sustainable location within close proximity to local services and amenities. There is a good highway network and established pedestrian and cycle links to encourage access by bus, walking and cycling promoting healthy lifestyles.

The proposed allocation would provide certainty to the landowners.

Representation ID: 431

OBJECT Mr Matt Free

Summary:

Please refer to 152817 which includes this parcel of land. Residents, SPC, Rt Hon Priti Patel and Cllr Kevin Bentley have all strongly objected to this application. There was no public consultation, as stated in the current DP15 CBC Policy and also contained within paragraph 74 of the NPPF, that can change the designation of land from Public Open Space to residential. Furthermore, this parcel of land should have been fully landscaped in 2006 as per a Discharge of Condition 03 (97/1428) and CBC are in breach of this condition, this has been confirmed by Daniel Cooper 'Planning Enforcement Officer'.
