We are working closely with Tendring District Council and Essex County Council in preparing a Plan for the new Garden Community at Tendring Colchester Borders. This Plan will include all of the strategies, policies and proposals needed to guide development of the new settlement over the coming decades.
 
The Councils are committed to delivering the Garden Community on an ‘infrastructure first’ basis. This would entail the Councils having an elevated role in delivery, ensuring that transport improvements, new schools, health services and leisure facilities are delivered before or alongside new housing.
 
The commitment to plan and deliver the Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community is contained in Section 1 of the Local Plan which has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for examination.
 
The Councils have now completed the initial Issues and Options consultation for the Garden Community. The purpose of this consultation was to invite feedback from local communities and stakeholders on the Councils’ emerging approaches to a variety of different themes, including transport, green infrastructure and design.
 
The feedback received from the consultation will be considered as part of the preparation of the next stage of planning the Garden Community, the Preferred Options stage, which will set out more detail on the Councils’ planning approach.
 
The Issues and Options document can be found here along with the accompanying Sustainability Appraisal.
