Decision on fence is just days away
12:00pm Friday 11th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
THE outcome of a hotly anticipated inquiry over registering Mistley Quay as a village green could be just days away.
A public inquiry into the village green application finished in July and campaigners have been anxiously waiting for the outcome.
They claim the land surrounding Mistley Quay has been used for recreational purposes for the last 20 years.
They have been fighting against a 6ft fence since it was put up five years ago. Owners of the quay, TWL, erected the fence in 2008 as part of an understanding with the Health and Safety inspectorate.
Inspector Alun Alesbury’s report is expected to be handed to Essex County Council by the end of this month.
