Consultation for Paxman Academy

Closed 15 Jun 2021

Opened 1 Jun 2021


The Proposed All Weather Pitch at Paxman Academy, Paxman Avenue, Colchester

Why your views matter

Essex County Council (ECC) is proposing to install an All Weather Pitch (AWP) at Paxman Academy, Paxman Avenue, Colchester.

Please see attached planning boards at the bottom of the webpage.

The AWP will support and enhance Paxman Academy’s ability to teach a full, broad and balanced curriculum. The facility can be used all year round, even when poor weather conditions frequently render a significant portion of the existing playing field unusable, with flooded pitches and frozen ground conditions. The AWP is therefore hugely important for the school, and offers a potential opportunity for the local community.

It is on this basis that I would like to invite you to participate in the online exhibition to review the latest build proposals, and to have your say before the plans are resubmitted to the County Planning Authority. Comment forms (Survey) are available on this page and I would be grateful if you could take time to complete one so that we can capture and consider your view.
