Health Centre - new ideas
To kick things off I’d like to introduce something which I gave a mention to at the Wivenhoe Town Council meeting (Feb 18th). Because of the limited time members of the public are given to speak I had to be brief, but I said I would put the idea up on the Wivenhoe Forum in greater detail. I’m afraid
it’s going to take a bit of explaining, and since there is a limit to the
number of characters you can have on a single forum posting, I’ve attached a Word document and a pdf version of what I've written. I hope you are able to open one of them OK (if you can't then I'll think of another way of getting it posted up here).
The proposal concerns the land at Millfield - (photos attached). This is in response, and as an alternative to, the proposal for a housing development linked to the health centre at the fire station site. The housing development would be built on the protected 'green break' area. Such a scheme is referred to as an 'enabling development' - but see this posting which explains the problems such schemes can have.
(Edit: Looks like the reason why some people can't open attached documents is that they only open when you are signed in to the Forum. If you are having trouble opening the attached documents below, check whether you are signed out. If so, sign in and try again. You should find they open OK then.)
Edit: This idea has been examined, discussed, and has now been withdrawn - June 2013.
