Present Position

The Examiner has now produced his Report which has been published on the Colchester Borough Council and is available here REPORT . He has fully accepted the three key points of the Neighbourhood Plan, namely

- Policy FF1 - Fiddlers Field to be the single strategic site for the development of 150 dwellings;

- Policy FF4 - the direct access road provided by way of priority junctions directly linking Fiddlers Hill to the A1124, capable of taking HGV traffic; and

- Strengthening Environment Policy EP1 (no coalescence with nearby settlements) by way of improved wording.

The Parish Council has accepted the Report and the way is now clear to hold a village referendum on the Neighbourhood Plan.
