Dry dock

On Friday Cbc signed the authorisation to prosecute for the non-compliance with the breach of condition notice served at the dry dock, this is now being progressed by the legal team and will be in court in due course, for prosecution on that case.

    May have something to do with the colour, don't think it was designed as a frog pond.
  • great news, just 10 years late....
  • The failure of Persimmon Homes to maintain the Dry Dock water feature to an acceptable standard, despite repeated promises that they would do so. 

    We're glad that the Borough Council have now taken this step. 
  • Maybe someone could mention to both Persimmon Homes and Bovis that West Quay is starting to subside in places and maybe they should put that right too?

    Surely West Quay is now the responsibility of Colchester Borough Council, hence the No Cycling signs?  Or are we talking house subsidence?
  • It would be good to have a clear statement of who is responsible for maintaining what on West Quay.  My understanding, which may well be wrong, is that the part of West Quay which lies between the houses built by Bovis and the river is owned by the individual householders so presumably they have to maintain it.  It is less clear for the Persimmon development, Talking to a Persimmon resident he believes that Persimmon still have maintenance responsibilities but are failing to carry out repairs.

    West Quay is not the responsibility of CBC.  ECC Highways put up the No Cycling signs on that part which is a public footpath. This does not mean that it is owned by ECC, merely that it is a public right of way.   Can any Persimmon residents explain the situation?  Is there supposed to be some management company to which residents contribute?  Future maintenance responsibilities should all have been clearly sorted out at the time planning permission was granted but this does not seem to be the case, or, if it was, it is not being complied with.  It would have been better if it could have become part of the public realm with an adequate endowment fund for future maintenance.

    Are there likely to be problems with parts of Cook's Shipyard?

    Look critically at public spaces in  any future plans for large scale developments.

  • Are there likely to be problems with parts of Cook's Shipyard?

    There shouldn't be - Cooks residents pay approximately £65k a year for the up keep of the estate to Trinity estates
  • You may already be aware that West Quay is privately owned/maintained; however due to there being a PROW ECC will investigate further and see if any action can be taken by ECC.
