Petitioning Essex County Council

Reverse the decision to lock out the community groups using Phillip Road.

The Colne Bank school of dance has been based at the Phillip Road centre since 1982; the Hub youth club is a popular meeting place for over 100 young people from Wivenhoe, Alresford and Elmstead Market; and the Moving Image cinema screens a wide range of film events across the community. We have been given just four weeks to pack up our belongings and hand over the keys for a building which will then lie empty for months on end. Livelihoods threatened, volunteers discarded and young people turned out. This has taken place without discussion or assistance, despite everything that the community has invested in the place.

Letter to
Essex County Council
Reverse the decision to lock out the community groups using Phillip Road.
