Petition sparks sheltered housing debate
11:19am Friday 30th November 2012 in News
SHELTERED housing will be debated by councillors after a petition was handed to the council.
More than 2,300 signed a motion calling on Colchester Council to guarantee the future of council-owned sheltered housing.
Campaigners say they are opposed to the closure of Joyce Brooks House and Abbeygate House and concerned about a review into five other accommodation centres.
The topic will be discussed at a full council meeting on Thursday (December 6).
