  2. Feedback from CBC Training Event – Monday 18th Jan 2016
    BT to feedback at the Parish Council meeting on Wed 27th January.
  3. Permitted Development – 91 Chapel Road, App. No. 150744
    Now in the hands of the enforcement officers at Colchester Borough. LW to take photos and send off to CBC.
  4. Amended Plans – 40 Pirie Road, App. No.152502
    No further comment to make.
  5. Hedge Removal – 62 Mumford Road.
    The removal of the hedge bordering 62 Mumford Road and the new development at 45-47 Lexden Road was an example of poor practice by the CBC Planning department and the developer, not talking to neighbours about future exposure issues. On the plans the existing hedge should have been included, along with a note saying that it would be removed.  CS will draft a letter to both parties and will include Cllr. Harrington.
