Final day for consultations on Stansted expansion and New Town proposals

There are 2 important consultations closing today.

Stansted expansion plans

Read our full news item here.

It is important to have your say if you object to Stansted airport doubling the number of passengers it currently carries.

The process is simple, all you need do is follow the link from the above news item to the Uttlesford planning site and make your objection known.

We are trying to make sure that the impact on communities is recognised and that we are fully consulted in processes to minimise noise disruption, through careful management of flight paths. This level of engagement simply does not happen at present.

Braintree Local Plan

As we have reported on a number of occasions, the Braintree Local Plan includes a shared plan with Uttlesford District Council to build a new town of 10,000 houses to the north of Felsted.

The impact on roads through our Parish and on our services (school places, doctors, water supplies), will be immense.

The Parish council has made this submission, supporting the objections made by the combined Parishes in the area.

You can still have your say. The consultation portal is here. whilst the form itself is complicated you do not need to go into the full detail if you do not wish to. You can simply email to¬†localplan@braintree.gov.uk, use the heading ‘Local Plan Consultation’ and then provide your comment in the email text.
