answer to Jason's question - in total there were around 50 -60 people
there. I don't know who everyone was - but from Wivenhoe Town Council
there was myself and Asa. Bob Needham was there as a representative
of Wivenhoe Society and the Neighborhood Plan group - as were Jane
Black, Peter Hill and Neil
were two senior officers from Tendering
district council and a TDC councilor but I cant remember any of their
names. Karen Syrett and Ian Vipond were there as officers from
Colchester Borough council. There were reps from ECC, and from David
Locke Associates (who are the consultants working on this). Tim and
Julie Young, Tina Bourne, Cyril Liddy, Rosalind Scott and Phil Fin
from the labour group. Mark cory and Paul smith (leader of the
council) and at least one other Lib dem. The Oxfords (Borough
Councillors from Highwoods) and at least two other CBC Borough
councillors. Chris Hill and Chris Lee were there from Greanstead.
Plus members of Alresford, Elmstead and at least two other parish
councils. The university was also represented.
Colchester wanting City status I think.
I find this all just very sad. Poor little Wivenhoe. RIP
