A BID has been made to designate Mile End and Braiswick as a neighbourhood.

Myland Community Council and Braiswick Residents Association have applied to Colchester Council to create a neighbourhood area.

If successful, residents would be able to draw up a neighbourhood plan and have more of a say on how the area is developed.

Visit www.colchester.gov.uk/planningconsult by January 7, 2013, to have your say on the proposals.
