Jam factory plans enjoy ‘positive’ feedback
INITIAL feedback over plans to create a new jam factory at Tiptree in Essex has been “overwhelmingly positive”, the company says.
Over 1,300 people visited the new factory exhibition at Wilkin & Sons, Tiptree, during the nine days it was open to the public and 1,000 questionnaires about the proposals were received.
More are expected before the closing date of July 31.
The firm wants to build a new factory at a nearby site in the village to replace its current plant, with enabling development as part of the scheme.
Each response is set to be analysed and the collated results should be available in mid-August

“We’ve been encouraged by the positive response from villagers and indeed the interest shown by our neighbours in Tolleshunt Knights,” said chairman Peter Wilkin. “What we must do now is ensure that concerns are addressed before we reach the planning stage.
“Some of the issues raised may be relatively easy to resolve, others will need more thought. Style and layout of the new homes has been a key issue.

“We have to be certain that what is agreed with the planners is what is actually built.”
Issues raised include local jobs for local people, traffic, the style of the homes and a call for an allotments site.
