Legal review launched over Colchester's High Street car ban
4:43pm Wednesday 20th March 2013 in News
A GROUP of disabled campaigners have launched a bid to try and secure a legal review of Colchester's High Street car ban.
Fair Access 2 Colchester has instructed Unity Law, which specialises in disability legislation, to commence Statutory Review proceedings against Essex County Council.
They say the trial restrictions, introduced on Sunday, are discriminating against disabled residents as they remove many Blue Badge holder spaces from Colchester High Street.
