Colchester, Tendring, Braintree and Essex County Councils have joined together to form the North Essex Garden Communities vehicle. Three large scale developments are planned. This could include 9,000 new homes on our doorstep.
Hands Off Wivenhoe is a community group that is determined to make sure that Wivenhoe’s voice is heard. We formed in late 2017 as plans for the Garden Community on the Colchester and Tendring border started to develop.
Our members come from many different backgrounds. The unifying message is that we want Wivenhoe to remain a distinct place, and not a suburb of Colchester.
Between us we have considerable skills that can be shared to help find the best outcome for Wivenhoe.
Regular, informal meetings are held. Please do come along and join us!
