The Parish Council are interacting to try to influence the developing Colchester Borough Council Local Plan for the period 2017 - 2032. They are also seeking presentations from the major developers putting forward sites around Marks Tey in the current Call for Sites. Initially these will be low key informal presentations aimed at informing Councillors and making information available to the public but will later in 2015 be wider public presentations. The intention is to display relavent dates and presented or submitted information here.
