Inappropriate access route requires urgent attention

On Friday (26th July) I spoke with Sadie Nine live on BBC Essex regarding the recently installed “cycle” path on Christopher Garnett Chase, Tollgate Stanway.

Listen again for 30 days:

Local residents have raised concerns with me over the inappropriate installation of cycleway infrastructure at this location. The steps are making it difficult for those with buggies and near impossible for those in wheelchairs to use too.

This goes against everything we are doing as a team in Stanway to ensure our community is connected with proper infrastructure.

I will be raising this on residents behalf with team colleagues at Borough and County level, asking how Colchester Council planners allowed this to happen, and importantly what will be done to put this right.
