Free the Quay

We actively support the ongoing campaign to have the fence at Mistley Quay removed.

The two-metre high fence was installed during 2008 by site owners Trent Wharfage, ending centuries of public access to the quay and quayside. The "Article 4 Directive" issued by Conservative-led Tendring Council, means that the current fence cannot be replaced or mended without planning permission. As the fence is a temporary structure, planning controls will be in place to ensure that what replaces it will be more in keeping with the quay environment.
