Consultation for Walnut Tree Alternative Provision Academy, Colchester

Closed 22 Feb 2021

Opened 8 Feb 2021


Invitation to review an Online Public Exhibition relating to the proposed new Walnut Tree Alternative Provision Academy, Walnut Tree Way, Colchester.

Why your views matter

Essex County Council (ECC) proposes to build a new two storey teaching block and facilities for an 80 place Alternative Provision Academy principally for Primary age pupils, on surplus land adjacent to Paxman Academy on Walnut Tree Way.  The ECC project design team has been working with the Keys Co-operative Academy Trust to develop a proposal that would meet the school’s educational need and fits well on the site.

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

We would like to invite you to an online exhibition to review the latest draft proposals online and to have your say before the proposals are completed for submission to the County Planning Authority as a full planning application. Comment forms are available online and we would be grateful if you could take your time to complete this so that we can capture and consider the views prior to the submission of the planning application.

What happens next
