STANWAY residents can have their say on what community facilities £500,000 should be spent on.

Colchester Council is hosting a series of consultation events at the Live and Let Live pub in Millers Lane, starting tomorrow. Developers behind the under-construction Lakelands estate have passed on £500,000 of contributions which can be spent on community improvements.

The events take place tomorrow from 11.30am, January 23 from 6pm, February 13 from 6pm and March 7 from 11.30am.

Residents can fill in a questionnaire asking whether Stanway needs more meeting rooms and play areas, or if a skate park or dog agility zone would be popular. The survey also includes maps featuring locations of community buildings and open spaces.

It is available online until March at colchester.gov.uk/stanwaycommunityconsultation

There is nothing wrong with the pig farm era of Ronnie West or other issues that went on over in Stanway.
Both The WEST & The WATTS family have put the area on the MAP they achieved incredible feats I don't see any Knighthoods being chucked their way either and I ask why not???? Both old chap Ron & Dan are dooers not talkers in life, they get things done and God bless em!
The stench you talk of comes from a gas type of GAS field over in Church Lane:
This does not affect the area or property values.
The wind blows this gas smell in many different directions:
So what big deal!
What we want in Stanway is going to cost a lot more than a paltry 500k
Firstly before any money is spent contractors have to clean the mess up they have made while constructing the new phase of Marine-ville?
Thats Out of Stingray (Gerry Anderson):
Yes I am insinuating the buildngs may be going up and down as per the TV show?
