Dry Dock Maintenance
After much delay, we have been successful in getting Persimmon to give the go ahead to refurbish the benches and bollards around the Dry Dock water feature, as well as to replace the tree that died over 18 months ago. A new tree has now been planted and we’ve been told by Persimmon’s contractors that the work will begin in the next few weeks.
In other news…
We have heard from Persimmon’s consultants, TDS, that they are arranging a meeting between the managers at Essex County Highways and Persimmon’s representatives to try to resolve the issue of the adoption of West Quay and Dry Dock (more information on this in our previous blog post). It’s expected that this meeting will take place mid-May.
According to the Colchester Borough Council planning website, the planning permission request to build homes on Rowhedge Wharf has been withdrawn.
