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.
