Welcome to Felsted

Located in north-west Essex and with a population of around 3,000, the Parish of Felsted has at its heart the historic village of Felsted, surrounded by Greens and Hamlets, in a beautiful rural setting. You can see pictures taken around the parish here.

Felsted retains the underlying charm and attraction of a rural parish, with the community and village at its heart. This is what attracts people to the area and what we as the Parish Council see as our historic duty to protect. Preservation of our heritage is balanced with a duty to ensure that the Parish thrives and meets the future needs of our community.

Uttlesford Community Policing Team are launching a new initiative called ‘Policing our Parishes’.

As a part of this, Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) are visiting Parishes to meet with Parish Councils and residents to discuss community needs and concerns.

PCSO Natalie Smith will be in Felsted on 6th June.

Any residents wishing to meet with her on that day should contact the Parish Clerk in the first instance.
