Letter from Writtle Parish Council re: Warren Farm development

I am bitterly disappointed to inform you all that last night the Policy Board of Chelmsford City Council approved the Addendum to the Warren Farm site Masterplan.

This means that a bus link using Avon Road will be abandoned and all motor vehicles serving the 880 houses, including buses, will exit and enter onto the site via the Roxwell Road. It was stated that this change is likely to have only a minimal effect on traffic flow on this road.

This recommendation will now go to the Cabinet of the City Council for approval,which will be a formality. Following this, once planning consent has been obtained, building can commence.

A sad day for the residents of our village.

Chris Hibbitt
Chair, Writtle Parish Council
