Dry Dock – Update: Enforcement Action Deadline

Colchester Borough Council have formally written to Persimmon Homes to say that they will instigate legal enforcement action by 9th May if the developer does not either (i) refill the feature and turn the pumps on; (ii) submit an alternative solution via the Preliminary Enquiry procedure or (iii) submit a planning application to vary the original condition.

As residents a key concern is that the developer will take option (ii) or (iii) and prolong the current operational failure for an extended period.

Further, the concern would be that whatever alternative is presented under (ii) or (iii), it will be an inadequate solution, primarily aimed at saving the developer the cash required to implement the original scheme.

We will remain in active discussion with the Council to move matters forward, and will post any updates here.
