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.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England is asking for your views on the electoral review of Essex. The review will agree new electoral divisions across the county council.

  • Do you have suggestions about where your division boundaries should be?
  • Where do people in your area go to access local facilities, such as shops and leisure activities?

Felsted is currently in the Thaxted division and the results of the consultation could lead to Felsted moving into another district in Essex. It is therefore very important to have your say.

The consultation closes on 5th June 2023
