Despite opposition from Colchester Green Party, 1000 houses on Middlewick Ranges is still included in the Local Plan. Our view is that the MOD should withdraw the sale of the land, a decision which started all of this, and also that Middlewick Ranges should never have been included in the draft Local Plan.
Residents again have an opportunity to object to this and it is important to do so in order to keep the pressure on the MOD and the government.
