Site Of Roman Chariot Racing Stadium

EDM number 1381 in 2005-06, proposed by Bob Russell on 16/01/2006.

That this House is deeply concerned at development threats to the remains of the only Roman chariot racing stadium discovered in Great Britain; recalls that in January last year they were excavated in Colchester on land sold by the Ministry of Defence for housing; is dismayed that the importance of this historic discovery has not been given proper recognition and protection by those with responsibility for safeguarding the national heritage; is appalled that planning permission is being recommended to build blocks of seven-storey high flats just 14 feet from the foundations of the stadium in direct contravention of the design proposals agreed in the draft plan for the re-development of the former Garrison area; and calls on the Government, English Heritage and all who appreciate the national and international importance of the discovery of the remains of the only Roman chariot racing stadium found in Great Britain to ensure that there are no developments which damage them and the setting in which they are located.

This motion has been signed by a total of 53 MPs.
