In February 2020 following five years of hard work by the Steering Group the Felsted Neighbourhood Plan was formally adopted. This Neighbourhood Plan has been an important policy document which has brought about many benefits for Felsted.
- It is a material consideration in planning decisions made by Uttlesford District Council and the Planning Inspectorate
- It has prevented unwanted development within Felsted
- It has secured a new Community Health Centre (to be owned by the Felsted Community Trust) which is currently being developed by Mulberry Homes in Station Road
- A much-needed, safe and secure car park for Felsted Primary School is being planned as a result of the Neighbourhood Plan.
Neighbourhood Plans that are older than 2 years carry reduced weight during planning considerations so Felsted is refreshing its plan to secure further protection for the parish.
A Review Group has been established and is meeting regularly to undertake this task.
