LANGHAM COMMUNITY CENTRE in School Road, Langham, is hoping to see lots of local people in the main hall at 10.30 a.m. on Saturday 12th November to celebrate the completion of the refurbishment works which began at the beginning of August.


Grants from Cory Environmental in Britain, Essex Community Fund and the Langham Parish Council have made such improvements possible. 


This will be an opportunity to see the results at first hand and to thank all those involved in the project.


Local County, Borough and Parish Councillors have been invited, together with MP Bernard Jenkin and representatives from our grant providers.


We expect our cleaner, greener and more disabled-friendly Centre to provide an even more pleasant experience for local clubs and organisations.

This document, now submitted to Colchester Borough Council, draws together not only the considered view of the parish, as expressed in the housing Questionnaire early this year, but the story of the Parish Council's involvement in the whole process.

Press response from Tony Ellis, representing Langham PC


We are of course pleased that the scheme by Edward Gittens and Associates for a “Langham Garden Village” was not accepted and we are currently looking in detail at the other specific Borough Council proposals for Langham. The Preferred Options are now subject to a consultation period when the Parish Council and others can make their views known. The findings from a Parish Council survey of Langham households last November, with a response rate of 43%, led the Parish Council to recommend that 85 housing units be built over the plan period. Copies of the findings were made freely available to the Borough Council. We consider that any higher figure would be unsustainable in terms of Langham’s infrastructure and facilities. The growth figure of 125 produced by the Borough Council represents a growth of one third in the housing stock, would not be “proportionate growth” and would alter the character of Langham as a rural village. A Borough Council consultation takes place 4.00 to 8.00 pm on Tuesday 12 July at Langham Community Centre and a Parish Council drop in session on Saturday 16 July 11.00 am to 1.00 pm to seek residents’ views. We would urge as many as possible to attend these public meetings.


Please come along to these consultations, and make your views known!
