West Bergholt is a large rural Essex village lying near the border of the English counties of Essex and Suffolk. It is situated just outside and to the North-west of Colchester – Britain’s Oldest Recorded town. The village has a population of around 3,500 consisting of about 1,400 households. The village itself dates back to mediaeval times and has a well-documented history. The village also has 2 pubs, 2 churches and numerous clubs and groups.
During Lockdown most activities in the village are suspended due to COVID-19
Taking place on 17th February 2021 via Zoom Videoconferencing, this planning & development committee meeting will review planning applications and decisions as well as any pre-application representations.

Woods Bowls Club, however, has cautiously put some dates forward in anticipation. The club is small but very friendly lawn bowls club that is open to all ages and abilities. The club consists of a mixture of male and female members with ages ranging from ‘Thirty-somethings’ to sprightly Nonagenarians! You are never too young or too old to play Lawn Bowls.
