One of the big issues effecting the people of Saint Margarets Ward is the Northern Fringe Development
Building on the Northern Fringe at present would lead to traffic congestion chaos along Valley Road and Colchester Road, increasing the use of Roads like Henley Road, Westerfield Road, Tuddenham Road, Sidegate Lane and Rushemere Road being used as rat runs. It is clear that the present road network would not be able to cope with it.
This is one of the reasons why resident of Saint Margarets Ward and Conservative candidate for the forthcoming bye election, Stephen Ion is against it.
Of course Labour candidate for Saint Margarets, Glen Chisholm can’t object to the Northern Fringe because the crazy idea was imposed on the town by the last Labour government.
