Save Myland’s Green Spaces

As part of the Northern Gateway Project Colchester Borough Council plan to move Colchester Rugby Club to a new site and utilise the Mill Road Sports Ground to build yet more housing. We at Myland Community Council (MCC) want to preserve all our green space and we are, therefore, proposing to apply for ‘Village Green Status’ to protect the Sports Ground. We want to preserve this essential local green space for our community to enjoy.

Join us and express your support – email your local councillors and MP, Sir Bob Russell, asking for their support. Or write to your local newspaper.

“The importance of green open space to a communities health and well-being is well recognised. It is key to our quality of life and for this reason retention of green open space will feature strongly in our forthcoming Neighbourhood Plan.”

A Stark Reality

Whilst Myland Community Council fully intends to play a positive and co-operative role with both Mersea Homes and Colchester Borough Council in discussions on both parties’ plans for the NGAUE aka Chesterwell Wood site, the Community Council has a duty and a desire to raise some fundamental concerns regarding the sustainability of that site.

The paper ‘A Stark Reality‘ discusses and evidences those concerns.
