Colchester’s new Chief Inspector Shaun Kane will be introducing new initiatives to stamp out low-level crime.
When asked by Cllr Coleman at a recent Scrutiny meeting about the non emergency number 101 he made it clear that ALL crimes should be reported.
All reported crimes are recorded and whilst police resources are limited these reports will create a picture of what action is needed in areas of the borough. He made it clear that it was his priority to make communities safe and will be deploying officers where they are needed based on community feedback.
Please report all crimes such as AntiSocial Behaviour, dangerous parking, theft etc on 101.
The Planning Inspector has dismissed the planning appeal for the development of flats at the entrance to Tufnell Way off Bergholt Road.
The planning inspector agreed with many of the points we had raised about this development and has therefore dismissed the appeal. There are now no further grounds to move forwards on the rejected application and a new scheme would need to be submitted via a brand new planning application.
We are very pleased that the application has been dismissed on appeal.

Tufnell Way Appeal Decision
We have been working with Asda to come up with a Clean for the Queen event in Mile End. March 5th has been suggested as the date we aim to make Mile End even more sparkling!
Currently we are proposing to clean the North Station, Northern Approaches, Bergholt Road area, Turner Rise and Turner Road areas as these are close to the store and are also areas where litter does accumulate. We are happy to go further afield with more volunteers.
We would very much like to involve local residents so if you can spare some time on March 5th, please let us know.
