The empty plot of land in Dover Road

Future of empty Dover Road land under discussion

The future use of a plot of land in Dover Road , Brightlingsea is being considered in a review by Tendring District Council (TDC).

The plot is one of 72 small pieces of land – some open space and some brownfield – owned by the council across the district, which combined cover 10 hectares or 25 football pitches.

Options could include using the land for council housing, garages, selling, or leaving as is. The Dover Road site is one of six larger plots that have been prioritised for an early decision.

Carlo Guglielmi, TDC deputy leader and cabinet member for corporate finance and governance, said: "Our highlighted priorities for this year are to make better use of our assets, and this is a prime example of that. We can use some of our under-used land to help our residents; whether that is through housing, garages or something else which comes out of this piece of work. That could include selling the land, and using the money to support other council services and actions.

He added: "We are not taking a blanket approach. We totally appreciate some sites will be more sensitive than others, and we want people’s comments so they can be taken into consideration."
