1. Issues and Options

The Council consulted on the Issues and Options of the new Local Plan from 16th January to 27th February 2015. The purpose of this consultation was to identify the issues that we should address in the new Local Plan for Colchester and some of the options for addressing them. This includes the key issue of identifying where the future growth of the Borough might be located.
