COMMENT Environment Agency (Mr Martin Barrell)


We would wish to be involved with the strategic development of the Neighbourhood Plan. There are flood risk issues with regard to the location of development, including access to the Colne Flood Barrier, an essential element of infrastructure for the whole Borough.

COMMENT Natural England (Kayleigh Cheese)


SS18: Wivenhoe - Colne Estuary SSSI, Essex Estuary SAC, Colne Estuary (Mid-Essex Coast Phase 2) SPA and Ramsar. Upper Colne Marshes SSSI.

All direct and indirect impacts to designated sites need to be assessed, for impacts such as recreational disturbance, water quality, water dependency and direct land take of functionally linked land. This should be fully covered in the SA. Policies may need amending after the HRA is completed. Green infrastructure provision is essential to reduce impacts from recreational disturbance at these sites.

COMMENT Essex County Council (Matthew Jericho)


Growth would generate up to 75 primary aged pupils and up to 50 secondary aged pupils. Broomgrove Infant and Junior Schools and Millfields Primary School, operating at, or close to, capacity. Likely that there would be a need to expand either Broomgrove Infant and Junior Schools or Millfields Primary School by 1/2 form of entry (105-places).

Growth would generate an additional 22 childcare places which could be created by either extending existing local provision or by building a new facility.
Surface water risks in the area- appropriate for Neighbourhood plan to include the provision of SuDS.

SUPPORT WL 2010 Ltd represented by Pomery Planning Consultants (Robert Pomery)


The respondents, WL2010 Limited who own land to the north of Rectory Hill, Wivenhoe, which is identified as a broad location for growth on the Wivenhoe Policy Map, support Policy SS18.

The broad growth locations identified in the policy and on the Policy Map are the result of extensive site assessment work undertaken by the Wivenhoe Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, in consultation with Wivenhoe residents. As such, they are considered to be the most appropriate sustainable and deliverable locations, capable of meeting the town's growth needs.

OBJECT miss fleur forsyth


Colchester General Hospital is unfit for purpose. The commute to my workplace is awful and alternative transport is not workable. As a community nurse a car is essential. As a Wivenhoe resident I'm forced to become a health tourist and use my family address to access a GP outside of the area. In addition my Niece and Nephew are forced to attend seperate primary schools as there is no capacity for them residing in Wivenhoe. I enjoy the greenbelt the town of Wivenhoe, and am apalled at the diregard CBC has for it's residents.

OBJECT Professor Alison Rowlands


Local infrastructure cannot cope with this number of new houses. The planning document states that both Wivenhoe primary schools are already at capacity; so where are the children from the new houses to go? Where will all the kids go to secondary school? Wivenhoe Surgery is already very stretched, and the local dentist is closed to NHS patients. In the bigger picture, how will Colchester General Hospital cope with the constant increase in local population?
