WAKES COLNE PARISH COUNCIL
New houses will be built in our villages in the future. A Neighbourhood Plan gives us, the residents, a voice to say where we would like them to be built, the type and number of houses and their style.
Chappel and Wakes Colne Parish Councils have the opportunity, with community involvement, to create and submit a Neighbourhood Plan for our villages. This is not something produced quickly - it may take 2-3 years to complete - but, if adopted, will have force to ensure Colchester Borough Council must take the Plan into account.
Examples of Neighbourhood Plans in the local area and further information can be found at https://www.colchester.gov.uk/info/category/?id=neighbourhood-planning
All you need to do at present is to let our Parish Clerks know whether you would be willing to find out more by attending a public meeting (when restrictions allow, or virtually) and whether you would consider volunteering to join a team of residents to put a plan together. Without volunteers coming forward this is not something that the Parish Councils can do alone.
Colchester Borough Council’s seasonal Saturday Household Drop-Off Service will restart on 3 July 2021 and will run until 25 September
You can find all the information here simply enter your postcode to find out where and when your nearest location(s) will be.
