Colchester Borough Council is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to take action to minimise disruption and keep residents and visitors safe.
Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance
The Council will therefore use its best endeavours to ensure that such trials do not take place until such time as they can be demonstrated to be safe.
Recognising that this is a problem that crosses District Council boundaries, Colchester Borough Council will approach other Essex District Councils and Babergh District Council with a view to working together in addressing this potential danger to our residents and our environment.
In furtherance of its aims the Council will seek the support of Essex County Councillors who represent Colchester borough residents as well as the Members of Parliament for Colchester and North Essex along with Members of the European Parliament for the eastern region.
