The wrangling over the adoption of the roads on the Persimmon estate has finally been resolved. The Residents’ Association was informed in January that Essex County Council adopted the roads at the end of November 2013. However, not all of the site has been adopted. We have been provided with a survey that shows the extent of the highways that have been adopted by Essex CC: Persimmon are still negotiating with ECC for the adoption of West Quay.
In the short term, the adoption of the roads will have little impact on residents. However, now that ECC have adopted the roads, they also become responsible for parking and traffic management on the site.
