Fence fight on cards for Colchester residents
8:46am Monday 19th August 2013 in News
FURIOUS residents have called a meeting after it was revealed the Ministry of Defence wants to fence off their back gardens.
The MoD has sent letters to neighbours on Speedwell Road, Colchester, informing them they are putting up a two-metre high fence stopping them from accessing Middlewick Ranges.
It said it was for their own protection.
Residents have been left fuming by the fence, which will be put up on August 27.
It allegedly does not need planning permission and can be put up straight away.
The meeting will take place at 5.30pm today at St Barnabus’ Church Hall, in Abbots Road, Colchester.
