    "When Colchester council approved the plan, in about 2007, it insisted that all private motor traffic enter and leave the estate via an access on to the A134 (Cordelia Drive), near to the A12 but at the farthest point from the town centre. ...

    A year ago, the developers, Mersea Homes and Countryside, decided they didn't like this arrangement and applied to scrap the bus gate. They hedged their bets and also asked to move the bus gate into their estate, giving 160 homes access to Mile End Road. 

    Colchester council rejected the scrapping of the bus gate but granted a temporary access for five years to be covered by a legal agreement. 

    The developers decided to go to appeal." (blog)

  • 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.

  • Proposed East Colchester Garden Community

    Created by Steven Moseley // 2 threads

    "Braintree, Colchester and Tendring Councils along with Essex County Council joined together to put forward plans for three new settlements built to Garden City Principles.

    The three sites based west of Braintree, on the Braintree / Colchester border and on the Colchester / Tendring border could deliver up to 43,000 new homes along the North Essex A120 corridor with significant employment opportunities and transformational new infrastructure over the next 50 years."

    In May 2020 the planning inspector found the other two proposed settlements to be unsound, leaving East of Colchester as the only one of the three that could proceed.

  • Middlewick

    Created by Steven Moseley // 1 thread

    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.

  • Madison Square Garden (MSG) Sphere Planning Application

    Created by jrothwell // 2 threads

    The Madison Square Garden Company proposes to build a new entertainment venue, "the MSG Sphere", adjacent to Angel Lane and Montfichet Road in the Olympic Park.

    They have proposed a two-way cycle track at pavement level on Montfichet Road past Westfield, and to narrow the carriageway on Angel Lane (removing the current advisory cycle lane.) A small amount of visitor cycle parking is proposed.

    From LLDC's planning page:

    In March 2019, the Planning Policy and Decisions Team received a planning application for a large-scale live music and entertainment venue from The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG). The proposal is for a spherical shaped building next to Stratford Station that would provide an auditorium (capacity for up to 21,500 people), a music venue, nightclub, members lounge, restaurants, bars, and new bridges to create pedestrian connections across the site amongst other things.

    The building is a first for London because externally the spherical building would be composed of a ‘skin’ of LED’s. These LED’s would be programmable and could display images on the surface of the building including adverts.

    Application Documents 

    A detailed planning application and has been submitted which comprises a number of plans, drawings and documents that can be viewed on our website. An advertisement consent has also been submitted which comprises a number of plans and a design statement which is also available on our website.

    Both applications can all be viewed via the Planning Application Register, using the following reference numbers:

    • Full Planning Application: 19/00097/FUL
    • Advertisement Consent Application: 19/00098/ADV

    How can I comment

  • 21-month closure of cycle path from Cambridge North to Milton Road

    Anon // 1 thread

    At the end of this blog post, it's reported that the segregated cycle path from Cambridge North station to the north of the Business Park will be closed to cyclists from March 2019 to December 2020 (a period of 21 months), for utility works relating to development on the Cambridge North site. Cyclists are to be diverted to the south side path (along the busway); pedestrian access on the north side will apparently be maintained.

    In particular, this appears to prevent cyclist use of the recently opened gate at the south end of the Business Park for the duration of the works (unless perhaps one pushes one's cycle). Getting from or through Cambridge North to the Science Park will be less convenient, too.

    Full text from Camcycle blog post. (Robin Heydon tells me this information originally came from Brookgate.)

    Development at Cambridge North

    Early works have begun on the further development around Cambridge North, where new offices and a hotel will be built. Within the next couple of months, a major cyclist diversion will be put in place which reroutes cyclists accessing the station via the segregated path along Cowley Road. This will be closed to allow utility works from Milton Road down to the station. Cyclists will be redirected along the Busway cycleway from Milton Road. There will continue to be road access for cyclists to the industrial and residential units off Cowley Road (including the Camcycle office), but not beyond this point. Note that there will be a signifidant increase in construction traffic along Cowley Road.

  • St. Michael's Retail Park proposed on Smiths Industries site (ex-Tesco)

    Created by jpennycook // 1 thread

    Area Estates are proposing to build a retail park on the former Smiths Industries site between Winchester Road and Harrow Way, in Basingstoke. This was formerly owned by Tesco, who failed to build a supermarket there.
    No cycling access has been proposed, and the provision for cycle parking is inadequate - insufficient for customers, and none for staff.

    Please submit feedback to the developer.

    No planning application yet, but previous applications for the site are here:

  • 16/0847/FUL | Erection of six bedsits | Land Adjacent To 52 Victoria Road Cambridge Cambridgeshire CB4 3DU

    Created by Roxanne (CEO) // 1 thread

    Small development, there is very little information about cycle however a quick look at the drawing suggests that cycle parking layout is problematic.

    From the Planning and Heritage statement.

    The accompanying block plan clearly demonstrates that the proposed site arrangements provide for convenient and adequate locations for refuse collection, recycling and on-site cycle parking to provide opportunities to create an attractive setting with suitable hard landscaping and the use of coordinated materials of appropriate colour and texture would ensure a high quality build.

    It is considered that although no on-site parking has been made available to the proposed dwellings, the application site’s highly sustainable location and on-site secured cycle storage would encourage future occupiers depend less on private vehicles and travel via other more sustainable methods.
