The Save the Middlewick campaign group was set up in 2016 in response to Colchester Borough Council’s decision to include the site within the Local Plan.


This important Local Wildlife site and much loved green space is a safe haven for our depleting wildlife and a green lung for residents in our otherwise heavily congested air.

How you can help

As a movement, we rely on people joining and supporting the cause. You can help by signing our petition, writing to your MP, the council and newspapers.


We would also love to hear from you if you have a special skill, but if not you can still make a huge difference just by lending your voice and making as much noise as possible to help raise more awareness of the importance of this site, in the hope that we can get it the protection it so rightly deserves.


Please help us protect nature, wildlife, clean air and the health and wellbeing of the residents of Colchester.
