Residents set for crunch meeting over U's training ground permission

RESIDENTS opposed to a football club which has been given permission to use its training ground for longer have vowed not to give up their fight.

 

In January, Colchester United was given permission by Colchester Council to use its Grange Road training ground, in Tiptree, for extra hours, to allow the club to apply for category two youth academy status.

Residents opposed the plans, saying it would create excessive noise.

The objectors have now called a public meeting, with MP Priti Patel, to discuss the decision.

The meeting will take place tomorrow at Tiptree Community Hall, in Rectory Road, at 7.30pm.

You should have offered to put pigs instead on the field Robbie. Give the locals a wiff of that and they would soon change their opinions.

A pretty clear indication of the resident's desperation is that they see Ms Patel as their best bet.

Well, she is their MP, but I agree they must be desperate, as must Ms Patel. The decision has been taken so it is idle to go on arguing about it. Why does she bother?

Perhaps she also sees an injustice has been done. Could be a pointless exercise though but trying to support her constituents should be applauded.

Giving up is the usual choice of MPs. You only have to look at the way Bob Russell works to see that!

According the the above 'The meeting will take place tomorrow at Tiptree Community Hall, in Rectory Road, at 7.30pm'. That should be a good meeting as there is no Community Hall in Rectory Road!
