  • Planning consultation: ESNEFT Elective Orthopaedic Centre

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT) are preparing two planning  applications for a proposed Elective Orthopaedic Centre and Northern Approach Road access at Colchester Hospital, Turner Road, Colchester. The public is invited to comment on the development proposals in a consultation between 1 March and 12 March 2021.

    The detailed elements of the works involved with the Elective Orthopaedic Centre comprise:

    • Demolition of the Mary Barron building, Cardiac Catheterisation Unit and administrative block, part‐demolition of the Elmstead Day Unit (Endoscopy Unit only) and removal of staff car park F
    • Erection of a three‐storey building and roof top plant to serve as an Elective Orthopaedic Centre, that will comprise up to eight theatres and 75 beds
    • Creation of a new loop road to allow for ambulance bays and a patient drop-off area
    • Creation of a new pedestrian footway
    • Soft landscaping and ancillary works.

    The detailed elements of the works involved with the Northern Approach Road access comprise:

    • Creation of a new vehicular, cycle and pedestrian access point into Colchester Hospital via Northern Approach to the west
    • Inclusion of a new signal‐controlled junction to facilitate the access
    • Creation of a bus gate at the existing junction with Turner Road
    • Amendments to the entry and exit arrangement for the main visitor car park to allow access from the south via Turner Road and Northern Approach, and an exit to the north via Turner Road only
    • Removal and re‐provision of landscaping to the north and south of the proposed access point, to allow for the widening of Northern Approach to enable vehicles to enter and exit the site and provide for adequate visibility splays.

    The new Northern Approach Road access point is proposed to be located to the south‐western corner of the site, and will create a clearer, more legible and direct access for staff, patients and visitors from the strategic network in line with other local hospitals in Essex, and will provide improved highway safety and environmental benefits to residents residing along Turner Road, as well as encouraging improved sustainable travel behaviours.

  • Bartholomew Court Bus Gate

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    "When Colchester council approved the plan, in about 2007, it insisted that all private motor traffic enter and leave the estate via an access on to the A134 (Cordelia Drive), near to the A12 but at the farthest point from the town centre. ...

    A year ago, the developers, Mersea Homes and Countryside, decided they didn't like this arrangement and applied to scrap the bus gate. They hedged their bets and also asked to move the bus gate into their estate, giving 160 homes access to Mile End Road. 

    Colchester council rejected the scrapping of the bus gate but granted a temporary access for five years to be covered by a legal agreement. 

    The developers decided to go to appeal." (blog)

  • Proposed East Colchester Garden Community

    Created by Steven Moseley // 2 threads

    "Braintree, Colchester and Tendring Councils along with Essex County Council joined together to put forward plans for three new settlements built to Garden City Principles.

    The three sites based west of Braintree, on the Braintree / Colchester border and on the Colchester / Tendring border could deliver up to 43,000 new homes along the North Essex A120 corridor with significant employment opportunities and transformational new infrastructure over the next 50 years."

    In May 2020 the planning inspector found the other two proposed settlements to be unsound, leaving East of Colchester as the only one of the three that could proceed.

  • Middlewick

    Created by Steven Moseley // 0 threads

    The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is investing in new military firing range capabilities for Colchester Garrison which will release Middlewick Ranges for disposal. This presents an opportunity for the site to contribute towards Colchester’s need for new housing, and the land has been identified in the draft Colchester Local Plan as being suitable for up to 1,000 new homes and supporting local infrastructure.

  • Meander Mews/Rouse Way shared path stumps

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    Thanks to planning hiccups in the 90s and 00s, there is a missing section of the path between Rouse Way and Meander Mews that prevents it from being used as an alternative for walkers and cyclists to Cowdray Avenue, or as part of leisure routes, e.g. a riverside loop.

  • A120 to A133 Link Road and Rapid Transit System

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    "Linking the A120 and A133 with a new road will unlock land to provide housing and business space, improving connectivity locally and within the wider region. It will serve a new Park and Choose site and manage traffic congestion going to Colchester Town Centre, the University of Essex and its Knowledge Gateway Technology and Research Park.

    A Rapid Transit System that will prioritise public transport on a key route through Colchester. It will enable housing and business growth, allowing new and existing residents to benefit from frequent, high-quality, reliable transport connecting to the key destinations within the town. These types of system have proved successful in other towns and cities, helping create a shift away from car travel. A recently implemented example of this is the Belfast Rapid Transit Glider.

    The system will service a new Park and Choose site on the proposed new community east of Colchester and help to better connect future growth areas with the rest of the town."

A request has been submitted for changes to the juction to let cyclists enter Maldon Road from Creffield Road. It's understood that Cllr Sue Lissimore has subimtted this to the Local Highways Panel (LHP).
