  • Former ABRO site

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    The ABRO site (now called the DSG) forms part of the Defence Estate and was used as a military vehicle repair facility. The site was vacated in about 2019 and has not been used since that time. The Defence Estates have decided to dispose of the site as it is no longer required for military purposes.

  • 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.

  • South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP)

    Created by Steven Moseley // 0 threads

    Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) were set up by Government in 2011 to identify and support local strategic growth priorities, encourage business investment and promote economic development. This approach puts businesses in the driving seat and empowers the private sector to determine its own priorities.

    The South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) is a genuine partnership for growth between business, government and education. We put the role of enterprise – as the driving motor of the economy – at the heart of everything we do; and we work in partnership with central government and its key agencies to pursue and attract major investment into the South East to deliver significant economic growth.

    One of 38 LEPs established by the government, our role is to forge a partnership which properly understands the economic challenges and opportunities of our area, encourage an environment which delivers prosperity and to be directly accountable to local people and local businesses. LEPs decide what the priorities should be for investment in roads, buildings, and facilities in the area as part of an integrated approach to growth and infrastructure delivery.

    We represent the largest LEP area in England outside London, in terms of population and economic output, and cover an area encompassing the local authority areas of East Sussex, Essex, Kent, Medway, Southend and Thurrock.

  • Transport East, Sub-National Transport Body

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    In March 2018 Transport East was launched, as a new Sub-National Transport Body to deliver a collective vision for the future of transport in Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock.

    As a partnership, we bring together the local transport and planning authorities, and business leaders with Network Rail and Highways England. We enable the region to speak with one voice on the transport investment needed to drive transformational growth and improve the quality of life for all that live and work in the region.

    Why do we need Transport East?

    As one of seven Sub-national Transport Bodies covering England, Transport East will develop a Transport Strategy and Delivery Plan for the region which ensures that transport fully supports its members shared ambitions for economic growth, quality of life and prosperity.

  • Colchester General Hospital

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    The General is Colchester's District Hospital and has an A&E department.  Over time it has agglomerated services from the various sites across Colchester that have closed, including those on Lexden Road and on Severalls.

    The transport challenges the Hospital faces include that:

    • its main vehicle access is on a residential road
    • although it is serviced by bus routes it is not near or well integrated with transport hubs
    • local cycling provision is poor and in particular the junctions around North Station amount to a significant barrier to cyclists travelling from South Colchester
