Closed 17 Aug 2020

Opened 3 Aug 2020


The Proposed Expansion of Colne Community School and College Church Rd, Brightlingsea, Colchester CO7 0QL.Invitation to review an Online Public Exhibition relating to the proposed new build accommodation at Colne Community School and College.

Why your views matter

Essex County Council (ECC), along with the Department for Education (DfE), is proposing to expand this secondary school by 300 pupil places (2 forms of entry) in order to meet the forecast need for school places in and around Brightlingsea: ECC is leading on this matter.  

Please see planning boards at the bottom of the webpage.                                

The new infrastructure required to support the additional pupils involves the construction of a teaching block consisting of 12 classrooms and associated facilities. There is supplemented by a programme of internal remodelling to increase and upgrade the kitchen and dining facilities, and improve circulation around the school.

It is on this basis that we would like to invite you to participate in the online exhibition to review the latest new build proposals, and to have your say before the plans are submitted to the County Planning Authority as a full planning application. Please find the questionaire & feedback form below and we would be grateful if you could take time to complete one so that we can capture and consider your view.
